Crypto Module Day Agenda

Crypto Module Day is presented with the support of ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 27/WG 3, the working group responsible for the development of ISO/IEC 19790, the international standard bringing security requirements for cryptographic modules. Participants will receive an update on the several standards that build the ecosystem around ISO/IEC 19790, and an overview of the recent activities of the WG 3 working group. Presentations by certification schemes and vendors will provide first hand experience and expert insights on the application of the standard in a real-world environment. Looking forward, speakers will highlight upcoming challenges and the likely path for the further evolution of the standard.
