On the eve of quantum computing, the definitive need for crypto-agility is greater than ever. The ability to locate, manage, and securely update digital certificates on a network or on a device seems like a simple task, yet with the advent of new Enterprise use cases and flourishing IoT device introductions, management at massive scale becomes a challenge. Facing mounting pressures, IT security personnel and product managers are tasked with implementing solutions fit for today’s environment plus tomorrow’s post-quantum world. Join renowned Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) expert and Certified Security Solutions (CSS) CTO, Ted Shorter, as he outlines the defense against quantum computing and the IoT device invasion, crypto-agility:

· How can crypto-agility lend itself to a truly future-proof Enterprise and IoT device security strategy?
· Cryptographic kryptonite: demystifying quantum computing
· Challenges with digital certificate/device management at scale
