Abstract: 

Component integrity is quickly becoming of paramount importance in ensuring infrastructure is secure. DMTF’s Security Protocol and Data Model (SPDM) Specification defines messages, data objects, and sequences for performing message exchanges between devices over a variety of transport and physical media to authentication of components, firmware measurement and protection of data in flight. This session will cover the problems faced and how SPDM addresses the problems in the released versions of the spec as well as showing a sample flow of messages that would be used to authenticate storage.

Learning Objective 1: Learn the key components of DMTF’s Security Protocol and Data Model (SPDM) Specification

Learning Objective 2: Understand how SPDM addresses the problems of component authentication and integrity

Learning Objective 3: See how SPDM enables authentication of storage devices
