The Intel China Academic forum (ICAF) is an Intel Academic event held in China every other year. The purpose of the forum is to encourage the collaboration between Intel and China Academics. The attendees are the deans or department chairs from different universities in China and some officials from China education ministry. The one-day security curriculum workshop is organized by Intel lab for security curriculum update from several funded universities in China. We attended these two events to introduce the Intel Academic security program in the security curriculum workshop and ICAF.
The Intel seed-board program recently donated BIS-6630 Norco development kits to Patrick Schaumont, currently an Associate Professor at the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Virginia Tech. The BIS-6630 development kits are compact fanless embedded PCs designed around the Intel® Atom™ N2800 processor at 1.87GHz (formerly known as Cedar Trail). The platform comes with a Fedora clone pre-installed, but also supports embedded development using the Yocto project (http://www.yocto-project.org).
Implement network security remedies to secure mobile communications. The rewards for using mobile data access to improve business agility and employee productivity are tremendous. However, security issues should be addressed when considering the exposure of any enterprise assets to mobile users, whether through Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), secure browser sessions, Web services, downloadable applets, or any other means.
