The Third International Cryptographic Module Conference Call for Papers: Deadline March 23, 2015


Mark Your Calendar: ICMC 2015, November 4-6, Hilton Washington D.C., Rockville, MD
You're invited to share your expertise at the third annual International Cryptographic Module Conference. ICMC is a growing forum for global expertise in commercial cryptography. Industry leaders will convene November 4-6 in Washington, D.C. to address the unique challenges faced by those who produce, use, and test cryptographic modules that conform with standards such as FIPS 140-2 and ISO/IEC 19790.

We are focused on attracting participants from the engineering and research community, test laboratories, government organizations, the procurers, deployers and administrators of cryptographic modules and academia. Our program consists of one day of workshops and tutorials, followed by two days of 30 minute presentations (plus 15 minute for questions). We solicit proposals for high quality papers and relevant workshops that will be of interest to the community involved with cryptographic modules on topics below. Visit for complete information.


  • Management of Cryptographic Modules in the Field
  • Standards: Including FIPS 140-2, ISO/IEC 19790, FIPS 140-3
  • Physical Security and Hardware Design
  • Key Management
  • Random Number Generation
  • Side Channel Analysis, Non-invasive Attacks
  • Choice of and Implementing Cryptographic Algorithms
  • Cryptographic Modules Implemented in Open Source
  • Hybrid Systems, Embedded Systems
  • Tools and Methodologies
  • User Experience
  • Other Cryptographic Standards

The committee favors vendor-neutral presentations that focus on the practical design, testing and use of cryptographic modules. Product vendors are encouraged to recruit clients and partners who are front-line implementers as presenters.
