Driving Away from the Storage Visions 2016 Conference – Encryption in Cars and More
Earlier this month, Trusted Computing Group with the Drive Trust Alliance participated in the Storage Visions 2016 in Las Vegas, co-located with CES.
Speakers addressed the role of self-encrypting drives (SEDs) in data protection and the evolution of those drives, while members exhibited the newest drives and management tools, including open source software.
While SEDs themselves excite those interested in very fast data erasure of drives and securing the data on drives from attack or loss, the big news at CES was cars. With the car now essentially a very large rolling computer loaded with electronics and data connected to something else, security continues to be a hot issue.
Do storage devices have a role in securing important data and credentials? You bet. This great blog post from the DTA addresses some specifics and applications of SEDs in the auto, along with a look at other topics at the Storage Visions and CES events.
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.
