About this talk

Cybersecurity is critical in developing and running complex, distributed systems. As systems become more interconnected and intelligent, protecting data against cyberattacks and unauthorized participants becomes increasingly challenging. The first step to securing a distributed system is to protect its data. As a publish/subscribe protocol, DDS helps ensure that only authorized users and nodes can transmit and receive data, providing zero-trust, end-to-end data protection and data-origin authentication. The DDS Security specification defines the security model and Service Plugin Interface (SPI) architecture for DDS-compliant implementations. This enables out-of-the-box security between compliant DDS applications. Specifically, the use of SPIs allows DDS users to customize the authentication, access control, encryption, message authentication, digital signing, logging and data tagging. The OMG will release an updated version of the DDS Security specification later this year. Last updated in 2018, the updated version includes new cryptographic algorithms, key rotation, support for dynamic revocation of credentials and hardness against DoS attacks. This webinar will provide an overview of the DDS Security spec with an emphasis on the new features. The presentation will be followed by audience Q&A.
