Dr. Diffie's keynote speech focuses on two innovative new cryptographic algorithms, Hummingbird and Passerine, both of which are true innovations in securing small, resource-constrained microchips that can be found on RFID tags, Smart Meters, gas and water meters, industrial controllers, automobiles and even household appliances. The algorithms, developed at Revere Security, require a minimal amount of power, occupy a very small footprint in memory and handle computational transactions extremely fast. By doing so, these algorithms are perfectly suited for small, resource-constrained devices.
Supported and attended by some of the most influential thought-leaders in the security business, the Smart Grid Security Summit West is an ideal venue to discuss security solutions for emerging technology and issues related to protecting US-critical infrastructure and the power grid. The popular event takes place in San Diego, CA from October 3rd to 5th, 2011.

About Revere Security
Revere Security is a privately owned company specializing in cryptographic security solutions for small, resource-constrained microchips and devices. Revere Security's solutions rely on a remarkably simple, efficient and powerful algorithm developed by Chief Cryptographer Whitfield Diffie and Chief Scientist Eric Smith. The unique algorithm has been tested, analyzed and proven successful through rigorous study by former cryptanalysts from the National Security Agency. Revere Security safeguards solutions in embedded systems, radio frequency communications, sensor technologies, smart meters, mobile computing and more. The company is headquartered in Dallas.
