We’ll showcase a range of West Coast startup firms that employ cryptography as a foundational technology. We’ll survey contributions by companies and organizations in Australia and Southeast Asia to the open source cryptographic protocols that power the Internet. And we’ll dive deep into the cutting-edge post-quantum crypto work that is taking place throughout Asia.

At ICMC19 in Vancouver, over 500 industry leaders from over 25 countries will come together to address the unique challenges faced by those who develop, produce, test, specify, and use cryptographic modules, with a strong focus on standards such as FIPS 140-2, ISO/IEC 19790, and Common Criteria. The conference helps to foster a focused, organized community of users.
