Greenwald und Snowden Keynote

Edward Snowden emphasized his point again at the { "href" : "http://", "vLink" : false, "text" : "Global Conference", "target" : "_blank", "tracking" : null , "vTrackingFooter" : null } : We are all targets of intelligence agencies. Many of the exhibitors at CeBIT have realized this by now. One of them is the { "href" : "http://www.cebit.de/exhibitor/bundesdruckerei/K43601", "vLink" : false, "text" : "Bundesdruckerei", "target" : "", "tracking" : null , "vTrackingFooter" : null } (Germany's federal printing office) in Hall 7: these experts from Berlin have created an intelligent ID card to give their clients an extra layer of security. The advantage lies in the combination of who owns the document, and biometric fingerprint recognition. No personal data is passed on to an additional database – everything is saved right on the card. They call it Verification on Document. "It's quick and simple to use, and offers a high degree of security", says Ulrich Hamann, CEO of the Bundesdruckerei.

In Hall 6, { "href" : "http://www.cebit.de/exhibitor/secusmart/Y263988", "vLink" : false, "text" : "Secusmart", "target" : "", "tracking" : null , "vTrackingFooter" : null } from Düsseldorf is presenting a tap-proof tablet, to round out their range of encrypted mobile devices. "All our products have the Secusmart Security Card at their core", explains Dr. Hans-Christoph Quelle, Founder, Managing Director and Shareholder. "It ensures privacy for emails, texts and conversations." And it's now available for tablets as well as cell phones. The future of our mobile devices seems secure.
