Defense Intelligence Worldwide Conference: Bring your disruptive technology to DIA leaders


diabadgeThe new Defense Intelligence Worldwide Conference evolved from an old event with roots in intelligence systems.  With a new, more mission-focused event, I expect the technology on the expo floor will have a wider scope, and will very likely include technologies that more strongly support the new mission-focused themes.

The conference, which will be held 8-10 April 2013 in Baltimore MD, has already attracted many tech firms to the expo floor, and I imagine booth space will soon sell out. If you are a firm with mission-focused technologies relevant to DoD intelligence missions you will want to check out your opportunities to participate right away (do that here).  If you are a government technology user or manager you will want to dedicate some time on your conference to walk the expo floor. This is a great way to meet with many firms all at once.

Which firms will be there? I imagine we will not see a final list for quite a while, but the following have already been listed on the conference website:

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Virgil Keys Service consists of a public key service and a private key escrow service. 

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
