The Data Distribution Service (DDS) standard from the Object Management Group (OMG) provides the interoperability and connectivity backbone for over 1,000 critical DoD and commercial systems. To address the increasing need for an interoperable security solution, the OMG recently adopted the DDS Security standard. DDS Security provides a robust network security solution, including support for authentication, access control, privacy and non-repudiation. At the same time, it preserves the DDS standard's inherent real-time performance, scalability, reliability and resilience.

This seminar will provide a comprehensive introduction to the new DDS Security standard. It will address migration of existing DDS systems to DDS Security as well as considerations for new applications.

For those new to DDS, the seminar will begin with a brief introduction to the DDS standard. It will conclude with an update on other recent and forthcoming DDS developments, including FACE and LabVIEW support.
