You, Me and FIPS 140-3, an Introductory Workshop (W00b)

Can you believe FIPS 140-2 is almost 19 years old!?! FIPS 140-2 is old enough to drive … it’s old enough to vote. After some false starts its time to move on from FIPS 140-2.

Many in the industry know FIPS 140-3 is coming, there is much interest in the community. Ryan Thomas of Acumen Security and Mark Minnoch of KeyPair Consulting will review what’s new in FIPS 140-3 and walk-through the timeline for its roll out. In this interactive half-day workshop Mark and Ryan will do a deep dive of the standard, and CMVP’s SP 800-140X series. We will answer what’s new in FIPS 140-3? What are the key differences between FIPS 140-2 and FIPS 140-3? What will happen to the current Implementation Guidance? Attendees will learn about the planned transition timeline and what will happen to their current FIPS 140-2 certificates? Advise and recommendations will be provided based on Acumen Security’s extensive experience as Cryptographic Security Testing Lab and KeyPair’s experience as both a consulting company and a FIPS 140-2 product vendor.
