Company representatives and researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology in Darmstadt got together from March 20 to 22 during the first European PlugFest of the Trusted Network Connect (TNC) Group.
"We tested the interoperability of NCP's VPN gateway with Juniper Networks Junos(R) Pulse Access Control Service,and found it worked immediately without any issues, highlighting the benefit of open standards,“said Lisa Lorenzin, principal solutions architect at Juniper Networks who participated in PlugFest.
The individual, successful connections were signed off by a tester from the Trusted Computing Group – with an official TCG certificate. Some companies identified interoperability issues in their network components during the tests. “And such error messages are also beneficial to the companies,”said Ronald Marx from Fraunhofer SIT, as “this enables products to be improved.” In addition to Juniper Networks and NCP from the US, the companies Infoblox, DECOIT and Mikado participated as well as the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Hanover and the Open Source MAP Server project. The next TNC PlugFest will take place in the USA in autumn.

New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality
19.10.2016 | University of Waterloo
Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...
'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.
Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
