ICMC is scheduled to return to a live format during a year that will see widespread changes in commercial cryptography. The highly-anticipated FIPS 140-3 standard will become the single accepted certification for secure cryptographic modules. At the same time, European regulators are moving forward with independent cryptographic standards. Interest in open source solutions has greatly expanded. And legacy systems are under a growing threat as the need for quantum-resistant algorithms increases each year.
In the face of these and other changes, hundreds of cryptographic professionals will meet in Washington, D.C. for the International Cryptographic Module Conference (ICMC22). The conference will survey the progress of FIPS 140-3, discuss the effect on current certifications, and report on the progress of the Automated Cryptographic Validation Program. Participants will take a close look at new certification standards emerging in Europe, and examine the growing emphasis on cryptographic certification by schemes in China, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, and others. Three days of presentations will survey the open source cryptographic protocols that power the Internet and the cutting-edge post-quantum crypto work that will insure future security.
ICMC is the leading annual event for global expertise in commercial cryptography. At ICMC22 over 400 industry leaders from 27 countries will come together 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 140-3, ISO/IEC 19790, eEIDAS, 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.
