Towards secure tokenization algorithms and architectures

Tokenization – the use of surrogate values for sensitive data – is all the rage. Although it is often sold as an alternative to encryption, it is at the core a cryptographic algorithm.

This session at RSA Conference Europe 2011 will discuss how the practical implementation of these tokenization systems requires a careful evaluation to ensure they fit securely with the intended information and application use case.

Ramon Krikken is an analyst for Gartner IT1 Security and Risk Management Strategies. He covers Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC), Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), and general software development security, as well as cryptography, data masking, security monitoring, and security metrics.
