Ray Potter, SafeLogic CEO, Returns to Speak at ICMC 2014 on Encryption and Entropy

Security Expert to Give Presentation on Entropy and Unveil New Product at 2nd Annual International Cryptographic Module Conference

Palo Alto, CA – November 18, 2014 – SafeLogic, the company re-inventing how encryption is delivered, is proud to announce that CEO Ray Potter will speak at the International Cryptographic Module Conference (ICMC) for the second consecutive year. Potter is expected to make a significant product announcement at the show. The event has grown significantly from last year’s inaugural effort and SafeLogic is honored to be a sponsor for 2014, again providing attendee bags to all delegates.

SafeLogicICMCLogoCombinedIn ‘Results of a Research Effort in Response to New Entropy Standards’, SafeLogic CEO and co-founder Ray Potter will discuss for the first time in public the innovative company’s technology developed to satisfy Special Publication 800-90 and the supplemental ITL Security Bulletin on entropy. SafeLogic’s engineers began exploring the issue in 2013, when NIST re-opened the public comment period for SP 800-90A, creating a conundrum for companies seeking FIPS 140-2 validation. Now, Potter will display the results along with a new solution that promises to change the landscape of the industry.

“I’m unbelievably excited to get to this year’s ICMC and share our hard work with the world,” said Potter. “SafeLogic has a lot of things planned for 2015 and this conference is the perfect place to kick off the announcements!”

The conference is being held at the Hilton Washington DC in Rockville, Maryland, from November 19 – 21, 2014. This session will be held on Thursday, November 20th at 2:30 PM local time, on the Certification Programs track.
