Hands-on Trusted Computing workshop at RSA Conference 2007

The Trusted Computing Group (TCG), whose open specifications for computing security have been built into an estimated 50 million trusted systems, will host a half-day workshop at the February RSA Conference 2007 to educate users and developers about the implementation of trusted systems.

The session, “Trusted Computing in Action: A Workshop to Secure the Enterprise,” will be staffed by security and applications experts from a number of leading computer vendors, including Fujitsu Limited, Infineon, Infoblox, Juniper Networks, ProCurve Networking by HP, Seagate Technology, Vernier Networks and Wave Systems. The session will be Mon., Feb. 5, 12:00 – 4:00 p.m., in the Esplanade Gold 301 room of Moscone Center, San Francisco, where the RSA Conference 2007 is being held.

” On Tues., Feb. 6, TCG’s security and computing experts will host an “Ask the Expert” social session at LJ’s Martini Bar, located at the Metreon across from Moscone Center. From 6:00 – 7:30 p.m., RSA attendees can meet with knowledgeable staff about various security issues.

” Tues., Feb. 6 – Thurs. Feb. 8, in Booth 2643, TCG will demonstrate a secure network incorporating products from a number of networking vendors. Demonstrations will show a number of capabilities including protection against network intrusion, ability to quarantine and remediate clients, and endpoint integrity authentication, all based on the Trusted Network Connect architecture for network access control. TCG member companies also will demonstrate the many applications, including single sign-on, password protection, key management and file and disk encryption, for the Trusted Platform Module in PC clients. Trusted storage for the protection of data at rest also will be shown. Exhibit hours are Mon., Feb. 5 from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m.; Tues., Feb. 6 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; Wed.
