"Wave is looking forward to bringing machine authentication to federated trust environments, and helping facilitate and advance industry best practices for secure collaboration." As part of its ongoing work with the TSCP, Wave will share its expertise in identifying ways to leverage the embedded hardware security of the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) security chip for establishing strong device authentication within the A&D supply chain. "We're pleased to welcome Wave Systems to TSCP," said Keith Ward, TSCP chairman. "We strongly believe that with all parties working together toward a common federated goal, we can reduce the risk of information security breaches, accelerate secure information sharing across A&D organizations, and reduce overall program costs. Wave's unique experience and capabilities in Trusted Computing will be a tremendous asset to TSCP and its members."
