In this issue of the Vault we cover different applications for hardware-based security solutions: From protecting the smart grid to protecting identities, the range of topics illustrates the ever extending range of smart security products. As predicted in my last editorial, NFC has been a very hot topic over the last months and therefore aptly features in this issue with the provocative title “Step aside, Smart Cards – NFC is entering the Identifi cation Arena”.
Well, we at Security-News.tv are very excited about the developments in the fi eld of mobile security. Looking at larger scale application, protecting the smart grid has been the topic of several Vault articles. In the article by Martin Klimke and Chris Shire of Infi neon Technologies, we are looking at the very real steps taken by the German government to help protect power grids. With an exciting show season coming up, please stay tuned on Security-news.tv and Contactless-Intelligence.tv for all the latest news.
