Join a Community of Colleagues This Spring in Ottawa

The International Cryptographic Module Conference is the leading annual event for global expertise in commercial cryptography. At the sixth annual edition of the conference in May 8-11 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, over 400 industry leaders from over 22 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.
