WebCast - TagVault.org Tools and Services

This webinar is free and will provide answers to organizations on how about how to create, digitally sign and certify SWID tags.

 
PRLog - Mar. 4, 2010 - SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- 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.
