Why, you may wonder, is she standing on a box and what is the green stuff in the background? The shot was taken at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and the funky background is “Network Art”. Anyway, what does that have to do with Security-News.tv and this edition of The Vault? Well, it is about innovation and the trends that will shape our society.
In this issue of The Vault we hear about Infineon’s innovative SOLID FLASH technology and about further developments in securing ID documents. However, technology breakthroughs are not enough. As long as standards are defined by country borders – as is the case with national ID cards at the moment – the real market potential will not be realised any time soon. Not as mature as eID document developments, but just as exciting, is the world of NFC. We at Security-News.tv are convinced that in 2011 we will see the beginnings of mobile ID applications.
Watch this space for more news on this development.
Until next time
