New Identity Credential in Cloud Lets Mobile Devices Securely Authenticate Identity and Apply Digital Signatures from Any Internet Connection

SAFE-BioPharma has introduced a new, globally portable digital identity credential that allows any computer including tablets, smart phones and other mobile devices to assert a digital identity and to securely apply high assurance digital signatures to electronic documents.

Unlike other SAFE-BioPharma identity credentials, the SAFE-BioPharma® Mobile credential is stored in a secure hardware module in the cloud and can be accessed wherever there is Internet connectivity.

The cost of SAFE-BioPharma Mobile credentials is about one-half that of token-based credentials. There are no unique hardware tokens to manage, no drivers to install or maintain, and a single credential can be accessed by multiple devices.

“We developed SAFE-BioPharma Mobile to support industry’s embrace of Internet-based global collaboration. It’s being incorporated into use for clinical study collaboration, adverse event reporting, authentication into portals and applications, eTMFs, regulatory document management systems, and eSampling,” said Mollie Shields-Uehling, president and CEO, SAFE-BioPharma Association.

Like all cyber identities based on the SAFE-BioPharma standard, SAFE-BioPharma Mobile identities will be trusted by the FDA and other US federal government agencies. The new credential is a single, universal cyber-identity. It eliminates the need to maintain multiple usernames and passwords and/or multiple digital identities.

In the coming months, SAFE-BioPharma Mobile credentials will be deployed to hundreds of thousands of US prescribers to help them meet DEA requirements for ePrescribing controlled substances.

Application Programming Interfaces to integrate SAFE-BioPharma Mobile authentication and signing functionality into existing and future biopharmaceutical and healthcare applications are available by contacting [email protected].

Adobe plug-in software that allows digital signing by people using SAFE-BioPharma Mobile cloud-based credentials with their PCs can be downloaded from http://www.pdfcloudsign.com/index.html. Documentation and FAQs also are available at that address.

Information about obtaining SAFE-BioPharma Mobile is available at http://www.safe-biopharma.org/SAFEmobile.htm.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
