Daniel Timpson – DigiCert

Daniel Timpson is the CTO of DigiCert and will share his views on state of the art of the Public CA services and new directions from CAB forum. DigiCert recently acquired the public CA business from Symantec and will integrate this with the DigiCert offering. The combined market size makes DigiCert the unquestionable leader world-wide.


David Hook – Bouncy Castle

The man who needs no introduction: Mr. Bouncy Castle himself.



Hari Nair & Kevin Bocek – Venafi

The universe of code signing is changing fast. The standard for authenticating, installing and executing code for every modern OS is moving to the next generation of compute in IoT, containers and cloud. Security operations teams are scrambling to keep up as code signing has escaped from the individual developer’s desktop to the robotic manufacturing line of DevOp’s blazingly fast development pipelines. This session will provide you with the latest on code signing standards, threatscape and enterprise architecture for code signing.



Hendrik Brockhaus – Siemens

Industrial IoT – Internet of Things encompasses a wide range – from our home gadgets and appliances. Securing all types of IoT components is important but can be difficult and would be different depending on type of system. Among many area where Siemens excels is industrial IoT. Learn what are security considerations and how to architect and secure real-life industrial IoT.

Joakim Thorén – Versasec

Joakim Thorén, CEO of Versasec and a security solution management expert will explore the several types of virtual smart cards, the differences between VSCs and mobile device management systems, as well as the relationships and differences between TPMs and Security Elements (SE) found in many mobile devices today. He also will discuss challenges and solutions associated with JIT VSCs for companies of all sizes, and solutions that can emulate and manage virtual smart cards using the TPM. He will also discuss the pros and cons of going virtual versus physical, and the costs associated with each.

Michael Luken – Cisco Systems

Michael Luken, Senior Product Manager at Cisco Systems will present an EST (Enrollment over Secure Transport) update. He will discuss and provide use cases to explain why the industry should move from SCEP (Simple Certificate Enrollment Protocol) and adopt EST. Cisco has contributed to development of the both standards, has implemented in its products and has vast experience in real-life use cases that eventually lead to the evolution of SCEP to EST. On top of that he will also present related standards that Cisco proposes for use in the IoT space.

Scott Rea – DarkMatter

Scott Rea is Senior Vice President PKI at DarkMatter. With 20+ years of experience in Managed Public Key Infrastructure (MPKI), Scott Rea truly has a deep knowledge of the industry both from theory and practitioners side. Mr Rea will speak on topic “Creating a Trust Center: Technology is NOT your panacea”.


Tomislav Nad – InfoSec Global

Tomislav Nad, Chief Security Architect at InfoSec Global will present a talk about cryptographic agility. The world of cryptography is changing and requires the industry to constantly adapt: broken algorithms, vulnerable implementations, new standards and the quantum computer looming on the horizon. We start with a look at examples from the past and a look into the future to discuss their effect on applications and in particular PKI systems. We present the concept of cryptographic agility and show how it significantly reduces the difficulty and effort of adapting to cryptographic changes. Finally, we discuss the challenges of an agile PKI system and look at new technologies which could lead to the next generation.



Where to stay

PrimeKey Tech Days will be set in central Stockholm, with many good alternatives for hotels nearby. Why not arrive a little earlier and enjoy the historical city of Stockholm over the weekend? With the central location of PrimeKey Tech Days, you can quick and easy travel to the event, no matter where in Stockholm you choose to stay.

Our recommendation: Berns Hotel

Located in a central city alley, Berns Hotel is a premium boutique hotel full of modern design. At the same time it is part of the legendary house of Berns dating back to 1863. Maybe it’s the secret entrance that has made guests such as Rihanna, Bill Gates, Noomi Rapace and Dalai Lama pass through our doors. Or maybe it’s the majestic breakfast hall with crystal chandeliers and mirrors. Either way, we look forward to offering you the excellent service we are known for.
