                                There are two kinds of actors on every network—people and machines—and both need to be secured. People rely on usernames, passwords, CAC cards, and biometrics; but machines use keys and certificates for machine-to-machine communication and authentication. Billions are spent each year securing identity and access management, but virtually all of it is spent securing human access, almost none on protecting keys and certificates. “Machine” definitions in the traditional sense have exponentially expanded in recent years to now include software that emulates physical devices, algorithms, and microservices such as containerization in addition to the more traditional machine types like servers, clients,... ...read more...

Other communities have followed suit, training select sailors on the latest strategy and methods for global warfare. In the training of these Warfare Tactics Instructors (WTIs) each community takes a unique approach. This discussion will address best practices from each Warfighting Development Center, opportunities for improvement, and the overall role of the WTI in increasing American lethality against present and future global competitors....

We assume our technology will detect and block that attack or leak, we hope our incident response techniques will be efficient and effective when under assault, and we pray that our security teams are well trained and practiced when everything goes wrong. But in many cases, we don’t have a way to evaluate our security effectiveness let alone have any empirical evidence to back up our assumptions. In short, assumption-based security sucks. Assumption-based security results in many negative outcomes. • Security tool overload and shelf-ware is being... ...read more...

As a result, FIPS is a hot buzzword in the public sector, but there is a great deal of ambiguity and misunderstanding around it. Ray Potter, CEO of SafeLogic and an expert on FIPS 140-2, will explain what the standard covers, how it is tested by independent labs and validated by NIST's CMVP (Cryptographic Module Validation Program) team, why it matters for vendors in the federal and DoD community, and what procurement officers, buyers, and the average user need to know. This will build upon last year's session... ...read more...

The U.S. military’s use of these systems—especially armed unmanned systems—is not only changing the face of modern warfare, but is also altering the process of decision-making in combat operations. As military unmanned systems have become more autonomous, concerns have surfaced regarding a potential “dark side” of having armed unmanned systems make life-or-death decisions. This panel will address how the military and industry might harness big data, artificial intelligence and machine learning to design unmanned systems to provide the military not with completely autonomous systems, but with... ...read more...
