                         Steve Singer to Present “Design Options for a Secure Ethernet Stack”

AIX-EN-PROVENCE, France, April 2, 2013 – INSIDE Secure (NYSE Euronext: INSD), a leader in embedded solutions for securing transactions, content and digital identity, today announced that Steve Singer, INSIDE’s director of sales-system engineering, will be a featured speaker at the Ethernet Technology Summit 2013 event being held April 2 - 4 in Santa Clara.  Mr. Singer will present “Design Options for a Secure Ethernet Stack,” part of the Ethernet Security session on April 4, from 10:00 a.m. to 10:50 a.m., and will chair the “Beer, Pizza and Chat with the Experts” discussions on April 3, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

“Today, network security is a top priority, driven by the need to prevent costly data breaches, meet compliance requirements and protect critical national infrastructure,” said Steve Singer.  “Delivering products with this level of security can be a challenge for engineers, who often lack the specific knowledge and expertise in cryptography and standards necessary to meet these stringent requirements in a timely manner.”

Drawing on his real world experience, Mr. Singer will explain the role of the MACsec protocol in securing layer 2 LAN and MAN Ethernet communications, provide examples of where MACsec is located in the network (e.g., Ethernet switches, discrete semiconductors or in the PHY) and contrast MACsec with other protocols such as IPsec and SSL/TLS.  Singer will discuss various hardware architectures for implementing MACsec and will also examine the MACsec software stack, which orchestrates the MACsec session from the control plane.
