PORTLAND, Ore., April 26, 2018 – Trusted Computing Group (TCG) experts Bill Sulzen, Cisco Systems, Inc.; Michael Eckel, Huawei; and Steve Hanna, Infineon; will provide a tutorial on how to secure network equipment against sophisticated threats in a webcast Wednesday, May 16, 1:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time/10:00 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time.
Much effort has been put into securing data at rest and in transit. But routers, switches and firewalls remain vulnerable to attacks that can compromise these devices, resulting in access to networked data, unsafe network operations and firmware implants that can disable networks.
The webcast will outline key network equipment vulnerabilities and address specific steps to embed network equipment with foundational security, based on a root of trust. Speakers will advise attendees on key requirements and considerations for designing more secure routers, switches and firewalls and how to harden them against attacks, including malware.
TCG recently released guidance for securing network equipment. Recommendations include:
TCG is a not-for-profit organization formed to develop, define and promote open, vendor-neutral, global industry specifications and standards, supportive of a hardware-based root of trust, for interoperable trusted computing platforms. More information is available at www.trustedcomputinggroup.org. Follow TCG on Twitter and on LinkedIn.
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.
