Next month in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, hundreds of global leaders in the commercial encryption community will gather at the fourth annual International Cryptographic Module Conference (ICMC). Corsec’s Matt Keller, who also serves as CMUF Management Representative, will be presenting and recently was quoted in a release by the ICMC.
“ICMC, presented by the Cryptographic Module User Forum, was established as a forum on encryption standards set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Communications Security Establishment (CSE) of Canada, the National Information Assurance Partnership (NIAP) managed by the NSA, and other international bodies. These organizations, amongst others, will make presentations at the conference regarding new standards, validation efforts, and perceived threats.
Moving beyond encryption standards, this year’s conference has added sessions on cryptography for mobile applications, connected vehicles, and the expanding internet of things. “Encryption is the foundation of most data security,” said CMUF management representative Matt Keller, “so the conference brings together technology leaders in sectors like semiconductors, telecom, automotive, and electronics OEM. This new content is a natural evolution for the conference.”
Development of the conference agenda is ongoing. “The industry is constantly changing, and we want to make sure content is up-to-the-minute,” said ICMC project director Bill Rutledge. Recently added sessions will cover Enhanced Data Protection on Apple iOS 9 devices leveraging the Secure Enclave Processor, and new hardware security features on Android devices using ARM TrustZone technology. Other announcements are forthcoming. Complete information about ICMC can be found at sitdev.icmconference.org”
