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.

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Scientists developed specially coated nanometer-sized vehicles that can be actively moved through dense tissue like the vitreous of the eye. So far, the transport of nano-vehicles has only been demonstrated in model systems or biological fluids, but not in real tissue. The work was published in the journal Science Advances and constitutes one step further towards nanorobots becoming minimally-invasive tools for precisely delivering medicine to where it is needed.
Researchers of the “Micro, Nano and Molecular Systems” Lab at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, together with an international...
