Event Details

TagVault.org, a program of IEEE-ISTO and the registration and certification authority for software identification (SWID) tags as specified by the ISO/IEC 19770-2 standard invites you to learn about the tools and services available to TagVault.org members. 

This webinar is free and will provide answers to organizations on how about how to create, digitally sign and certify SWID tags.  The ISO/IEC 19770-2:2009 standard defines the structure of a tag and provides a lot of information about what each element of a tag is for, but does not specify which elements are the most useful to the market.  The standard does not specify how values should be normalized, nor why an organization may want to digitally sign a SWID tag.  This webinar answers those questions and more.

This webinar is open to everyone and will cover the following topics:

  • What is a SWID Tag
  • Why should I ensure my publisher uses certified tags
  • Tag creation, validation and digital signing tool
    • What does this tool look like
    • How do I use it
    • Can this be used in a production environment
    • How difficult is it to digitally sign a SWID tag
  • Digital Signatures - why do they matter and what do I need?
    • What a digital signatures looks like?
    • What benefits does it provide?
    • What are the key concerns for a digital signature?
  • How can my company learn more about the engineering behind TagVault.org tools?
  • I'm part of an organization that purchases software, how do I ensure that the software I purchase provides certified SWID tags?

Software Publishers – get firsthand knowledge of what a tag creation tool looks like and learn how easy it is to create and manage tags.  Learn the value of SWID tag certification and how certified tags reduce costs and increase customer satisfaction.  Understand the certification process TagVault.org uses and how easy it is for a properly managed development organization to provide the accurate and consistent data your end-users require to do a effective job of Software Asset Management (SAM) reconciliation.

SAM Tool providers – learn how to verify a digital signature and how to ensure that digitally signed elements are unchanged.  Understand how timestamps are necessary to the digital signature and how they are used to support the way certificate authorities such as VeriSign issue digital identities.

Software Purchasers – learn how to specify the requirement for certified tags starting as early as the RFP process.  Understand the value of certified tags to your organization and how they can be used in concert with your own imaging technologies to move from a firefighting SAM management approach to a management by exception approach.

Government Agencies – learn more about how digital signatures can ensure your agencies knows specifics about the provenance of applications and how applications installed on government owned computers were installed on those devices.  Understand how you can specify the requirement for certified tags and how that will help with the overall focus of a more open and transparent government.
