Alright folks, we have tested and are holding this event on Google Meet. The URL should be in the Location field but just in case

Should be an awesome session, I hope everyone can make it. Please mute your microphone! (Cameras are welcome though, especially if they include your pets!)


Data protection and breach defense are essential for today’s connected enterprise, but there are often gaps between services and from one application to the next. The goal is to enable the data itself to persist
in a protected state from one end of your operation to the other,
from start to finish of most business processes.

The solution is Format-Preserving Encryption (FPE). FPE protects your data from theft while allowing it to be usable for business processing without exposure. FPE-protected data retains referential integrity and can thus be processed without decryption and yet would have zero street value if breached.


Rick Troth has a long history with cryptography, data security, and
system security. He was an early adopter of PGP, a user of SSH from its
earliest days, and supported an in-house SSL stack at one point,
upgrading it from SSLv3 to TLS 1.0. He has also worked with Unix for
decades, with Linux from its 0.99 days, and with virtualization years
before VMware arrived on the scene.

Rick joined Voltage Security in 2015, just after they had been acquired
by Hewlett Packard. HP later split. And then HPE split some more before
divesting its software division to merge with Micro Focus. After four
years in professional services (post-sales), Rick is now an SE (pre-sales)
keen to tell the story of Format-Preserving Encryption. He has presented
at many conferences, including SHARE, Ohio LinuxFest, and Columbus Code

Rick and his wife Marilyn have two grown children, enjoy movies, music,
fine dining, and travel, especially camping. For fun, Rick builds his
own Linux-based operating systems from scratch. He is also a ham radio
operator, a hobby that’s *not* focused quite so heavily on software.

He also enjoys writing about himself in the third person.
