Presented by

Kevin Ng

About this talk

For mission-critical applications used by government agencies and highly-regulated industries, validated security is crucial. It’s especially important for the container runtime that sits at the heart of your software supply chain. In this webinar, we’ll explain the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS): what it means, what it doesn’t, and how software is certified. Then we’ll discuss the importance of FIPS certification for a container runtime. You’ll learn: - Who needs FIPS validated software and why - How software is validated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) - Opportunities unlocked by FIPS certification—including achieving your own certification - Why businesses should use public standards like FIPS to secure the software supply chain - How to verify that software is NIST-certified
