A fundamental concern for systems that want to provide secure authentication, data storage, and PKI credentials are securing the keys. Smart cards, secure elements, and Hardware Secure Modules (HSM) all offer mechanisms to securely generate, store and process keys and other information. It may seem odd to group them together and while they have different usage scenarios they have much in common from a security standpoint. There can be confusion about how to manage and configure these devices for use by end users. At this talk we will have an overview of the history and capabilities of these technologies with a focus on smart card standards, identification and features. A demo showing card detection methods is included.
Jesus used a form of encryption more commonly known as parables to reveal and conceal details of the Kingdom of Heaven. Those who were seeking found the key and could understand. How can we be sure we are spiritually able to find the key and decrypt the meaning? It is not complicated; all it requires is the right mindset.
