Date: Wednesday, September 13

Presented by: Steven Bowles, Regional Security Officer, NAR, Ingenico, Inc.; Richard Kisley, Chief Engineer, IBM Corporation and Dr. Susan Langford, Senior Cryptographer, Utimaco

The Payment Industry has used TDES encryption for years to protect PIN and cardholder data. As computing power increases, TDES is becoming more and more susceptible to attack. NIST recommends migrating to AES to address this threat - but where is the payment industry in this task, what work has already been done, and what remains to be done? This session will cover: the current state of AES support, ongoing AES work in standards, and considerations for planning your AES migration.
