"Security Challenges for the Information Society"
Open Standards Forum 2008
30 Sept-3 Oct
Ditton Manor (outside London)
In today's Internet and in many large private network infrastructures,
heterogeneity and diversity are the rule rather than the exception. Security
infrastructures need open standards and interoperability to scale to the
huge deployments that are being rolled out. Many security standards from
OASIS and other organizations support a model where identity authentication,
access control, digital signature processing, encryption and key management
are provided as services that can be distributed and shared.
If you are evaluating or deploying security infrastructures, the "Security
Challenges for the Information Society" Forum, will give you an opportunity
to explore the current and future state of security services, standards and
EXPERTS SCHEDULED TO KICK-OFF THE PROGRAMME...
