Winthrop Wu, Technical Director, will be giving a presentation titled: Architecting Future-Proof Platform Security from Device to Cloud
Abstract: In today’s always-connected world, security is a critical component in any new product. Security historically meant protecting the WAN through communications security (IPsec/SSL) and user authentication, but this still allows attacks on the endpoint, where data is stored in the clear and applications are vulnerable. In this presentation, we will highlight some common security architectures, show where they have security gaps, and discuss potential methods for plugging those gaps, including hardware root-of-trust, key provisioning, security-as-a-service, and device monitoring.
Speaker Bio: Winthrop has extensive experience as a platform security architect. He was responsible for the security architectures of the AMD APU’s in both the Sony Playstation 4 and the Microsoft Xbox One game consoles as well as for AMD’s line of desktop/mobile APU’s. He has a broad range of experience from his time with DEC, Analog Devices, Conexant/Mindspeed, ATI and AMD. Today he is responsible for all of the ASIC architectures of Rambus’ security products. Winthrop holds a BSCE from CWRU and a MSCS from UCLA.
We’ll also be showing our CryptoManager Cores and Infrastructure solutions.
