The Jericho Challenge - Finalist Architecture Presentations and Awards presented at BlackHatUSA 2005

by Paul Simmonds,

Summary : The days of the corporate network, completely isolated with a well-secured outer shell are long gone; yet we continue to cling to this model. Global networks with no borders, offer the potential of substantial savings in communications costs, maximum network agility and instant connectivity for clients and partners.
Can you secure this incredibly compelling business model, and provide a long-term business case for security where security contributes to the corporate bottom line? Can the CISO be seen as a true partner in corporate strategic thinking? What does business need from its suppliers to make this a feasible reality? What do you need to be doing now to achieve this goal?
The Jericho Challenge is an industry-wide competition with for secure architecture design and related Jericho compliancy concepts, available at http://www.jerichoforum.org. The top three finalists will present their papers during this session. Judges will give cash awards to papers that contribute most to the debate on Jericho Architecture.
