Nice, the italian french town, with its car and boat parking lying in front of gigantic buildings, with amazing sea view. Nice with its old town and its awful modern contrast. Nice, with its World Smart Week , made of buzz words such as NFC, identity and cloud, held in Acropolis, offering a common exhibition area, demonstrating maturity of any-form-of-NFC solutions. An interesting initiative was conducted aside, called Université NFC des Territoires , allowing different french cities going NFC to share their experience and brainstorm in workshops.
I attended the Chip To Cloud Security Forum which tries every year to show a state of the art in terms of security (hardware, software), or progress on any tricky topics such as authentication (of machine, people, devices) and smart secure distributed services, including cloud. I captured this year, several interesting topics that fed the conversations during the coffee breaks.
