Embedded Network Security Design Challenges to Be Focus of Linley Tech Seminar

Featuring Freescale, SafeNet, Intel, Elliptic, Tarari, cPacket Networks, and Hifn

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - August 30, 2007) - On September 13, The Linley Group continues its Linley Tech seminar series with a one-day event on Embedded Network Security Design. This seminar brings together industry experts, CTOs, and technologists to discuss leading-edge devices that address the specialized needs of this important market. The seminar will provide the latest information on the newest products to system designers who are designing network-security equipment or designing security into routers or other network equipment.

Bob Wheeler, senior analyst at The Linley Group, will open the program with an overview of current and emerging security technologies, market directions, and silicon trends. The seminar will wrap up with a lively closing panel debating the future directions of network-security processing.

You won't want to miss this outstanding lineup of technical presenters, including:

--  Frank Gates, Platform Solutions Architect, Intel, will present Intel's
    Quick Assist Technology and the new integrated processor code-named
--  Geoff Waters, Senior Systems Engineer, Freescale, will discuss future
    communications-processor features for hardening system designs and scaling
--  Rony Kay, President and CTO, cPacket Networks, will present his
    company's unique silicon architecture for embedding deep-packet inspection
    throughout networks.
--  Jeff Carmichael, CTO and cofounder, Tarari, will present Tarari's T10
    technology for scaling down the cost of UTM.
--  Russell Dietz, CTO, Hifn, will describe how to secure and optimize
    data replication in storage networks using Hifn's flow-through chips.
--  Mike Borza, CTO, Elliptic Semiconductor, will discuss how network-
    equipment vendors can design their ASICs to prevent counterfeiting of
    blades and modules.
--  Steve Singer, Systems Engineering Manager, SafeNet, will discuss
    performance considerations for embedding security-protocol processing in
    ASIC designs.

Following the seminar will be a networking reception complete with exhibits and a raffle. We'll be giving away an iPod Nano as well as a copy of "A Guide to Security Processors and Accelerators," one of The Linley Group's reports.

Admission is free to qualified individuals who register by September 10. The seminar is intended for system designers, OEMs, service providers, network-equipment vendors, security-software vendors, press, and the financial community. The seminar will be held at the DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose and is sponsored by Freescale, AMCC, SafeNet, Intel, Elliptic, Tarari, cPacket Networks, and Hifn.
