Resolve your companies m-commerce security issues at ISSE 2001 Monday 18 June 2001 PDF Print The scepticism and caution surrounding m-commerce has slowly started to dissipate, leaving companies wondering which technology to adopt to provide truly secure WAP & 3G services. Companies concerned by mobile security can listen and learn from world leading experts who will debate current and future m-commerce security issues at ISSE 2001. The 'Information Security Solutions Europe' conference is the major independent European Forum on IT security & e-business and is organised by EEMA - The European Forum for Electronic Business in conjunction with TeleTrusT. ISSE 2001 will be held on 26th - 28th September at the QEII Conference Centre, London. www.eema.org/isse The conference will host over 80 papers with a stream dedicated to mobile security issues presented by experts who have pioneered this technology in world leading companies. Dr. Mark Vandenwauver, Senior Security Architect at Tivoli systems who will give an overview and analysis of the security provided in WAP commented, "WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) has been under a lot of public scrutiny for its 'supposed' lack of security. While this may have been true for the first wave of WAP devices, the same can not be said for the newer generation scheduled to be released shortly. The addition of the WIM module, a public-key cryptography enabled smartcard, support for WTLS class 2 and 3, and the provision of signText, will change the landscape dramatically. In this paper Tivoli will show how this version of WAP provides security features, which are not in common use in the current Internet (wired) e-commerce environment." Dr. Oliver Pfaff the Technology Area Manager for e-business security at Trusted Networks and Applications, the IT-security center of competence at Siemens Information and Communications Networks will discuss unified security architectures for web and WAP is it Vision or Fiction? Dr. Pfaff will examine whether and to what extent unified security architectures for Web and WAP are possible. Dr Chandra Patni founder of Thyron Ltd., UK will present, walking the tightrope in a wireless world. Dr Patni said, "â€¦Technologies like Wireless PKI (WPKI) have been making waves across the mobile horizon and this might be just the ticket to get through the trust barrier [for m- commerce]. Probably the biggest inhibitor to PKI implementation and acceptance has been the lack of PKI enabled applications. PKI vendors and security consultants have been promoting it as essential technology for secure and trusted business, but what business applications are able to use it?" Magnus NystrÃ¶m, Engineering Manager responsible for implementations of Public Key Technology at RSA Laboratories will expose the issues and approaches when using mobile clients as personal trust devices. His paper will discus the use of mobile clients such as smart phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs) etc., as personal trust devices which can be used to securely carry a user's credentials and perform cryptographic operations on behalf of the user. ISSE 2001 will cover many other topics during the 3-day event. Government Ministers, European Commissioners, Leading Technologists, Heads of Industry, and Legal Professionals including Bruce Schneier (author of the best selling book Secrets and Lies) and Riccardo Genghini (Chair of European Standardisation Activities) will present the most recent concerns and solutions in 80 sessions divided into four tracks. Speakers in the closing Plenary include Mr Pinder eEnvoy (UK) and Ms Zypries, German Secretary of State and Phil Zimmerman. Leading end user speakers include Rolf Moulton (Unilever), Dominic Steitz (British Airways) and Thomas Oeser (Siemens). Speakers on international security initiatives include Frank Jorissen (Utimaco) on pkiC, Bernard Esslinger (Deutsche Bank) on Bridge CA, and Richard Wilsher (Zygma) on the tScheme.
