Latest improvements to widely deployed PKCS #11: Making cryptographic integrations even easier

As our need for cryptographic capabilities continue to increase, so does the number of solutions available to us to meet those needs. With increasing solution choice often comes increased integration burdens. As one of the most prevalent crypto API sets in the world, PKCS #11 is well supported in the industry and with a solid focus from the PKCS11 Technical Committee on ensuring its relevance and applicability, integrations should only get easier as this standard continues to develop. During this webinar, the PKCS11 Co-chairs covered the new content that has been worked into PKCS #11 v3.0 as well as a preview of what’s to come in v3.1 & v3.2, including the items that have been improved or revised based on feedback from the community.

OASIS Awards Ceremony & Year-End Review

With our 2020 year ending with continued dashed hopes for members to gather in person, OASIS Open held a virtual Distinguished Contributors & Open Cup Awards and Year-End Update. Distinguished Contributors Award is awarded to a select group of OASIS members who have made significant contributions to the advancement of open standards and/or open source projects, similar to a “Lifetime Achievement Award” or “Hall of Fame.” Open Cup is in recognition of exceptional advancements within the OASIS technical community. Two groups were awarded the Cup this year, one for Outstanding Approved Standard and another for Outstanding New Initiative.

The Awards Ceremony concluded with a musical review of our year together. (There are things about 2020 that will make you smile.)

All Things Open 2020

All Things Open event format changed this year. Along with the decision to transition to virtual comes a resulting change in format. Consuming content in front of a screen is different than walking around / in-person consumption, so the organizers felt it was vital to change the way in which content was to be delivered.

OASIS Open Executive Director, Guy Martin, spoke during the Inclusion & Diversity in Open Source event and Building Diverse Teams & Projects. The OASIS Open organization was also recognized by Amazon at the event.
