Xitex at the Verification Futures 2016 Conference

Xitex is pleased to announce that they will be presenting at the Verification Futures 2016 Conference on the 4th February 2016.

Organised by TVS, Verification Futures 2016 is a one day conference, exhibition and industry networking event to discuss the challenges faced in hardware verification. The day will host a fantastic opportunity to network with other verification engineers across Europe. As well as this, the event will offer an opportunity for end users to explain their current and present verification challenges, to collaborate with vendors and find solutions together.

Xitex’s presentation at Verifications Futures 2016 will be on Security Standards and Architecture Considerations for Secure Hardware Design and Verification.

Richard Marshall, Managing Consultant at Xitex ltd, will be presenting in at the event. His focus will be in consideration of the foundations of secure products. He will particularly discuss the need for true random number sources for nonce and key generation, as well as product compliance with standards such as FIPS 140-2 and 186-4. Where a larger number of customers must be considered – for example the mobile network operators mandating standards compliance – he will go on to consider what independent tests are available to demonstrate standards compliance. Consideration will also be given to some of the architectural security verification challenges and Richard will go on to look at a brief case study on secure hardware for 3G/4G Small cells.
