This first day is dedicated to the tutorials. They are as follows:
- Securing the Windows Platform by Steven Adler – This tutorial will provide attendees with a basic overview of how to architect their Windows platforms to improve their security and better withstand attempts to gain unauthroised access.
- e-Security 101: Security Fundamentals by Alexandre Stervinou – This session will give participants an understanding of important cryptography principles and public key cryptography standards upon which e-security is built.
- PKI Primer by Dominic Storey – For IT professionals with no previous knowledge of Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), this session provides a high level description of a PKI’s essential components, how PKIs function, and how PKIs can effectively co-exist and interoperate.
- Embedded Security: Making Security Fit by Ingo Schubert – Mobile phones, modems, chips and smartcards – public key cryptography is being used to provide authentication features on smaller devices. What performance factors and implementation issues affect embedded systems development?
- Web Access Management Basics by Kevin Turner – This session provides a high level description of Web based access control concepts and methodologies such as rule and role-based, course, fine-grained and transactional authorisation.
- Wireless Security Basics by Mike Vergara – This session is designed to provide a basic understanding of the issues in wireless deployment and development.
- Electronic Signature Standards and Technologies by Sarah Kent – Electronic signatures promise to usher in a new age e-business by helping to accelerate computer transactions to eliminate paperwork.
- Security in the XML Environment by Blake Dournaee – This session is designed to provide an introduction to security in the XML environment, including digital signatures, encryption, and trust services.
- Smartcard Technology and Usage by Kevin Bocek – This session provides IT professionals with a detailed understanding of what they are and what they can do for your organisation.
