Experts from around the world will convene at ICMC 2014 to address the unique challenges faced by those who produce, use, and test cryptographic modules that conform with standards such as FIPS 140-2 and the ISO/IEC 19790 standard. The conference helps to foster a focused, organized community of users. ICMC covers the technical design problems to meet the standard, with a particular emphasis on the challenges posed as technology advances with respect to the current standards.
ICMC reviews technical topics underlying the implementation of a cryptographic module including physical security, key management, side-channel analysis, cryptographic algorithm implementation testing, standardization (FIPS 140-2, ISO/IEC 19790), validation programs and more.
Who Should Attend
The conference is for those interested in developing, specifying and procuring certified commercial off the shelf cryptographic modules; manufacturers of cryptographic modules compliant with FIPS 140-2 or ISO/IEC 19790 around the world; laboratories and government departments responsible for testing cryptographic modules against FIPS 140-2 or ISO/IEC 19790 including the U.S., Canada, Japan, South Korea and Spain; key players and stakeholders in standards development; leading members of the academic community; embedded systems OEMs; and the side channel research community.
Presented by CMUF
The Cryptographic Module User Forum (CMUF) provides a voice and communications channel between the community of unclassified cryptographic module (CM) and unclassified cryptographic algorithm developers, vendors, test labs and other interested parties, and the various national, international, and multi-lateral organizational committees, schemes, and policy makers.
