             V-One Corporation

  Main Presentation:

  V-One Corporation (http://www.v-one.com) has developed what they call
  "Gate Technology" which provides secure and manageable user-based access
  to private information.  A "Pass" or user credential is used to allow
  access through the "Gate" and the authentication can range in strength
  from a simple password to smartcard keys or X.509v3 Certificates.
  While firewalls are designed to keep people out, V-One has developed
  a product which strongly manages those people who must be let in.

  This presentation will discuss the technologies related to user
  authentication and data privacy which play an important role in
  a company's security policy.  Topics to be discussed include:
  User Identity, Authenticated Access and Controls, Digital Signatures
  and Certificates, Audit Trails and Data Integrity.

  Speaker Bios:

  Steve Moubray has been in the networking solutions business for over 13
  years.  During that time he has spent many years doing security
  consulting world-wide and he has been a speaker to thousands of
  people.  Peg McMahan has been involved with the Internet, UNIX and
  data security for 6 years.
