MISSISSAUGA, ON, June 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Certicom Corp. (TSX:CIC) today announced that Robert Thibadeau, Chief Technologist of Seagate Technology, will speak at the Certicom ECC Conference on November 14-16 in Toronto, Canada.
During the session, Thibadeau will discuss the future of computing as envisioned by members of the Trusted Computing Group with particular focus on the roles played by storage devices, including the protection of data as well as key and license management.
The only one of its kind, the Certicom ECC Conference offers a forum for discussing pure mathematics and real-world applications. The three-day conference attracts some of the finest minds in academia and the security industry, representing Canada, the U.S. and Europe.
"Organizations such as the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) are adopting security models that include public-key digital signatures to protect electronic assets, including the next generations of PCs, phones, servers, and storage devices," said Dr. Scott Vanstone, Certicom founder and EVP strategic technology. "We look forward to the role ECC will play in the future of trusted computing."
ECC is used in a growing number of sectors ranging from consumer electronics, wireless devices and semiconductors to government and financial services. Its implementations are used to protect content, securely transmit data and digitally sign documents. The small size of ECC is a main driver behind its popularity. Backed by 20 years of experience, Certicom is considered a pioneer in ECC research and implementations. The company developed the industry's first toolkit to include ECC, which has since been adopted by more than 300 organizations.
