There will be a bar BoF on high assurance cryptographic APIs during IETF 77.

When: Tue, March 23, 2010 from 17:30 - 19:00 (tentatively)
Where: Mix Restaurant (in the Hilton Anaheim)

Menu available at:

Commercial cryptographic APIs (e.g., PKCS#11) are not suitable for high assurance cryptographic devices that have special considerations (e.g., security domain separation, rich module & key management). We'd like to discuss the problems surrounding creating a logical model for high assurance cryptographic devices and a potential solution we've published as an Internet-Draft:

Interested parties are invited to join our IETF mailing list for potential updates on the bar BoF and/or other matters relating to high assurance cryptographic APIs:
