Showcase Your Company at the Annual Convergence of Industry Leaders in Commercial Cryptography

Almost 400 commercial cryptography professionals from 25 countries came together last May for the International Cryptographic Module Conference—the industry’s leading forum for data security based in commercial encryption. For 2018, we’re building on that success with additional events and up-to-the-minute sessions and content and we’re continuing our in-depth coverage of cryptographic policies, standards, technologies, implementation, and markets. Reserve your place now at this gathering of professionals who develop, test, certify, specify, procure, and rely on these technologies

The International Cryptographic Module Conference is the leading annual event for global expertise in commercial cryptography. At the sixth annual edition of the conference on May 8-11 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, 400+ industry leaders from over 25 countries will convene to address the unique challenges faced by those who develop, produce, test, specify, and use cryptographic modules, with a strong focus on standards such as FIPS 140-2, ISO/IEC 19790, and Common Criteria. The conference helps to foster a focused, organized community of users.

ICMC reviews technical issues underlying cryptographic implementation including physical security, key management, side-channel analysis, open-source development, algorithm testing, quantum threats, embedded applications, standardization, validation programs, government policy, professional ethics, and more.

Bringing Together the Entire Industry Value Chain

Who Attends: ICMC brings together professionals involved with data security based in commercial encryption, especially those who develop, manufacture, test, specify or use certified commercial off the shelf hardware, software, and hybrid cryptographic modules. Key participants include laboratories and government departments responsible for testing cryptographic modules; stakeholders in standards development; leading members of the academic community; embedded systems OEMs; and the side channel research community. Participating federal agencies include CSEC, NIST, NIAP, NSA, DoD, GSA, and others.

Presented by the 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.
