International symposium on recent developments in cryptography and information security

It has been long since my last post: busy working on the soon-to-be-released NetIDSys products, pursuing some new IP ideas, completing a paper for the September/October 2007 issue of IEEE Security and Privacy magazine. I don't want to sound lame but this is the reality. On the bright side, I accepted an invitation to give a talk at the upcoming symposium on "Recent Developments in Cryptography and Information Security", August 29-31, 2007, Oryahovitza, Bulgaria. It promises to be a very well-attended event with many interesting presentations. The title and abstract for my talk are shown below; the full presentation coming after the event.

Smart cards and the Holy Grail of Internet security

Abstract. The rapidly growing need for secure and flexible Web services is creating a demand for a new generation of personal authentication solutions. Smart cards are secure, tamper-resistant, portable devices. Although smart cards are used by the billion in mobile communications, banking, and public transport systems, they have not achieved the same level of adoption in IT security applications. In this talk we examine the issues facing traditional smart cards and introduce an emerging technology with great potential for responding to the security needs of the Internet.
