PRESIDENT’S PERSPECTIVE

JCF continues to drive IoT Security at its Plenary meeting in Bucharest

The JCF held its 2nd Annual Plenary Meeting in Bucharest from October 15th -17th hosted by Oracle. As already established with the latest JC 3.1 specification released in January, IoT security was still very much center stage, with connected device volumes projected to increase exponentially. And all of these new to-be-connected device classes are expected to have new requirements on the security platform, depending on their use cases and area of deployment. Sensors, actuators and controllers will be deployed in so many heterogeneous usage fields, with completely different resource, connectivity and risk contexts: V2X and autonomous driving, smart grid and power management or complete campus networks for the factory of the future – just to name a few. All of those require different communication interfaces, different form factors, different power management and different security capabilities.

It is really exciting to drive the evolution of Java Card technology to become the open, trusted and interoperable state-of-the-art security platform for the IoT.

Yours truly,
Volker Gerstenberger
President of the Java Card Forum
