ActivIdentity CEO Jason Hart to Address Growing Adoption of Smart Cards at Novell Brainshare

SALT LAKE CITY/Novell Brainshare, March 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ActivIdentity Inc. , a global leader in digital identity assurance, today announced Chief Executive Officer Jason Hart will deliver a session this afternoon on the growing adoption of smart cards to address security and identity management in enterprises and government organizations at Novell Brainshare. Hart will explore how forward-looking companies are adopting smart card-based user identification to comply with legislation and industry regulation, and taking advantage of smart card technology to converge physical and logical identification for users.

(Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20051108/SFTU161LOGO ) When: Novell Brainshare: March 14 - 24, 2006 Jason Hart Presentation: Tuesday, March 14, 2006, 3:00 p.m. What: "Security and Identity: The Shift to Employee Smart Cards In The Enterprise"

In this session Hart will address the ongoing issues surrounding the management of multiple forms of identification for users in day to day affairs to transact with government, companies and other citizens. Often times, these transactions require a different form of authentication and in response to these disparate security requirements governments have established legislation, such as HIPAA, FFIEC, Sarbanes-Oxley and the Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12 (HSPD-12), to lay the groundwork for standardizing how we identify users. Government agencies have begun to implement such a framework by adopting smart cards for their employee and contractor identification as part of HSPD-12. Hart will present the current trends involved in establishing this framework for strong proof-of-identity in e- commerce and the government sector, and its application in national ID and corporate ID programs, and anti-terrorism.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
