Topic:  Securing Data-in-Motion & Data-at-Rest
Speaker:  Jonathan Ellis, Advanced Communications Concepts, Inc

Software defined radios are ready to impact the commercial mobile device market.  However, two technology issues remain to be solved – the need to support multiple networks with one chip to conserve battery life & reduce space and the issue of multi-protocol network security.  Technology that Advanced Communications Concepts (ACC) is developing is solving both issues using its dynamically reconfigurable computing with “protocol hopping” based security.  That security extends to protecting both data-in-motion and data-at-rest as well as efficiently securing passwords, application keying information, and more. Hear about the vision for the emerging market for dynamically reconfigurable security devices and ACC’s strategy for success in that market.
