The first day of 2016’s RSA Security Conference is in the books, and the ESG team offered some thoughts from San Francisco on the sights, sounds, and news from the event:

The first day of the RSA Conference is as much about the side conferences as it is about RSA itself, including America Growth Capital’s (AGC) investor conference and the Trusted Computing Group’s sub-conference focused on securing the Internet of Things (IoT) in both the panels and vendor expo.
Of note at the TCG event were representatives from the operating system sides of Microsoft and Google — as well as a principal engineer from CoreOS — who were not there to debate which OS would win the IoT war, but more to talk about leveraging Trusted Platform Module (TPM) as a trusted foundation to secure the increasingly vast array on IoT devices, sensors, and systems.
Membership in the Trusted Computing Group is your key to participating with fellow industry stakeholders in the quest to develop and promote trusted computing technologies.
Standards-based Trusted Computing technologies developed by TCG members now are deployed in enterprise systems, storage systems, networks, embedded systems, and mobile devices and can help secure cloud computing and virtualized systems.
Trusted Computing Group announced that its TPM 2.0 (Trusted Platform Module) Library Specification was approved as a formal international standard under ISO/IEC (the International Organization for Standardization and the International Electrotechnical Commission). TCG has 90+ specifications and guidance documents to help build a trusted computing environment.
