2017 International Cryptographic Module Conference and FDE cPPs

From May 17th to 19th, I had the pleasure of attending the Fifth International Cryptographic Module Conference (ICMC 2017) with my colleague, Alexander Mazuruc.   Alex usually attends this conference which focuses on cryptographic modules  and FIPS 140 type issues,  but this year there were 8 tracks on related subjects such as Quantum-safe crypto (yes, that is a thing), and Common Criteria.  The conference had about 35 different sponsors including the Trusted Commuting Group.  Overall I found the conference very informative and a good place to network in the community.
