Welcome to the IEEE Key Management Summit 2008

PRESS RELEASE

NetApp Presents on Securing Encrypted Data at the IEEE Key Management Summit

Sunnyvale, Calif. September 16, 2008 - NetApp (NASDAQ: NTAP) technical experts will present on key management implications as they apply to file encryption at the IEEE Key Management Summit (KMS) in Baltimore, Maryland on September 23-24, 2008. KMS 2008 is colocated with the IEEE Mass Storage and Systems Technologies conference (MSST).

The IEEE Key Management Summit brings together top companies that develop cryptographic key management for storage devices and the customers that rely on key management to secure their encrypted data. This summit aims to provide clarity to key management by showing how existing products and standards organizations address the problem of interoperability and security.

Session: "Key Management in a Global File Encryption Environment"

Enterprises often have very large geographically distributed namespaces. This presentation will explore challenges in key storage, organization, and distribution as they apply to data protection, retention, and archiving of data held in these repositories.

Speakers: Ravi Kavuri, senior technical director, NetApp
Subhash Sankuratripati, security architect, NetApp
Gaurav Agarwal, key management engineer, NetApp

WHEN & WHERE
Date: Tuesday, September 23, 2008
Time: 4:00 p.m., Eastern Time
Where: Sheraton Inner Harbor
300 South Charles Street
Baltimore, MD 21201

 



Chair: Matt Ball, M.V. Ball Technical Consulting, Inc.

The IEEE Key Management Summit brings together the top companies that develop cryptographic key management for storage devices with the standards organizations that make interoperability possible and the customers that rely on key management to secure their encrypted data.

With recent legislation, such as California's SB 1386 or Sarbanes-Oxley, companies now have to publicly disclose when they lose unencrypted personal data.  To meet this new need for encryption, many companies have developed solutions that encrypt data on hard disks and tape cartridges.  The problem is that these data storage vendors need a solution for managing the cryptographic keys that protect the encrypted data.

This summit aims to provide clarity to the key management by showing how existing products and standards organizations address the problem of interoperability and security.

KMS 2008 is co-located with the IEEE Mass Storage and Systems Technologies conference (MSST) in Baltimore, Maryland on September 23-24, 2008.

Deadline for submitting speaking proposals is May 30th, 2008.

KMS 2008 was co-located with the IEEE Mass Storage and Systems Technologies conference (MSST) in Baltimore, Maryland on September 23-24, 2008.

Lodging and Travel

KMS 2008 will be held at the Sheraton Inner Harbor hotel Baltimore, Maryland, USA

Please see the MSST 2008 site for the latest information on booking hotel rooms and registration.

Rooms will cost $219 per night at the group rate, which is a significant discount from the normal rate.

The hotel management has informed us that a major convention for the cleaning supplies industry is underway during our summit. So don't be surprised to see the colorful displays of janitorial products or be alarmed if a wholesale trash bags salesperson strikes up a conversation with you. You are likely to discover some of the best cleaning product deals while staying here. And it turns out that there actually is an interesting correlation between our security interests and the cleaning products world - the most secure locations are often the cleanest!
