Needham, MA — The Object Management Group(TM) (OMG(TM)), the international software consortium responsible for establishing distributed computing specifications for components and security, will hold its fifth “Distributed Object and Component Security (DOCsec) Workshop” from March 26 to 29, 2001 at the Loews Annapolis Hotel, Annapolis, MD, USA. This highly interactive workshop is exclusively sponsored by Hitachi Software ( http://www.hitachisoftware.com ) and will include tutorials and in-depth technology sessions, plus two roundtable discussions.
— Security Engineering Using OMG Specifications
— Distributed Security Solutions Case Studies
— Authorizing and Delegation
— Current Status of Security Specifications
— Emerging Technologies
— The “Users’ Roundtable” will focus on the implementation of distributed object security projects and will explore the difficulties that users have faced, and relate practical experience for people tackling DOC security projects.
— The “Vendors’ Roundtable” will be made up of panelists representing major DOC security products. Participants will speak about the specification/implementation issues they have faced and discuss their future product plans with relation to this technology.
Richard Soley, chairman and CEO of the Object Management Group and Jishnu Mukerji, senior systems architect of Hewlett Packard Corporation, will moderate the above roundtables. Also, representatives from XTRADyne, Object Security, Network Associates and Sun Microsystems will participate in the roundtable discussions.
The OMG invites DOCSec users, vendors and specification developers to attend. An early-bird registration fee of US$495.00 includes admissions to tutorials and sessions. Complete agenda, hotel and registration information is available at http://www.omg.org/news/meetings/docsec2001/
About The OMG
With the support of its membership of software vendors, software developers and end users, the OMG’s CORBA is “The Middleware That’s Everywhere(TM).” Since 1989, the OMG has been “Setting The Standards For Distributed Computing(TM)” through its mission to promote the theory and practice of object technology for the development of distributed computing systems. The goal is to provide a common architectural framework for object-oriented applications based on widely available interface specifications. The OMG is headquartered in Needham, MA, USA, with an office in Tokyo, Japan as well as international marketing offices in Bahrain, Germany, India, and the UK, along with a U.S. government representative in Washington, DC, USA. The OMG is also a major sponsor of the Integrate 2001 trade show and conference, which will be held September 19-21, 2001 in New York City.
