Securing Network Equipment with Trust and Integrity

Presented by

Steve Hanna, Senior Principal at Infineon Technologies and Michael Eckel, Security Technologist at Huawei Technologies

About this talk

Interconnected networks are critical to the operation of a broad and growing range of devices and services, from computers and phones to industrial systems and critical infrastructure. The integrity and security of routers, switches, and firewalls is essential to network reliability, as well as to the integrity and privacy of data on these networks. As increasingly sophisticated attacks are launched on network equipment, strong protection mechanisms for network equipment, both on the device and service level, is required. TCG recently has issued its Guidance for Securing Network Equipment with use-cases and implementation approaches to solve these problems, designed to help system designers and network architects get the best security possible from this powerful technology. Join TCG experts to learn about using device identity, securing secrets, protecting configuration data, inventorying software, conducting health checks, using licensed feature authorization and more. Speakers: Steve Hanna, Senior Principal at Infineon Technologies, currently chairs TCG’s Embedded Systems and IoT groups and driving the effort for a new industrial IoT group within the organization. He has been active in the Industrial Internet Consortium and its security efforts as well. He is the author of several IETF and TCG standards and published papers, an inventor or co-inventor on 41 issued U.S. patents; and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Harvard University. Michael Eckel is a Security Technologist at Huawei Technologies. Previously, he was a researcher and software developer at Fraunhofer SIT; mobile software developer at boostix and a web and software developer for a number of other companies. He holds a masters degree in computer science. Eckel currently participates in the Trusted Computing Group’s NetEQ subgroup, working to secure vulnerable network equipment.
