Standards Watch

Security is a constantly changing landscape with new standards continually under development, existing algorithms constantly under attack and higher performance solutions always being explored.

Standards Watch is published by Elliptic Technologies with the goal of informing and guiding developers towards the creation of new embedded security designs. Each issue zeros in on a specific and topical security subject and examines it in depth.

The latest issue of Standards Watch looks back at the recent discussion in IETF mailing lists about whether there is an ongoing need for the IPsec Authentication Header protocol, or whether it can be supplanted by other features of the IPsec protocol suite.
