Q&A with Soni Jiandani, VP, Server Access and Virtualization

…s, we have been successful in driving many innovations into our architecture through custom silicon development.  At the same time, we are often leading the charge to drive these innovations through the standardization process and providing engineering support for plug-fests and industry-wide interoperability efforts.  We do this because we believe it is in the best interests of the customers, the industry and Cisco.”…

On the Nature of Innovation

…ovations through the standardization process and providing engineering support for plug-fests and industry-wide interoperability efforts.  We do this because we believe it is in the best interests of the customers, the industry and Cisco. A recent example of this is Fibre Channel over Ethernet, a technology which is helping customers to save up to 50% on their data center infrastructure and operation by consolidating equipment and networks.  We w…

Cryptographic Algorithm Transitions (2010-2011)

…To this point, NSA has introduced Suite B that tries to describe the NSA-approved algorithms for cryptographic interoperability and for NSA-approved information assurance that also follow NISTs standards or recommendations. Amongst others, NSAs Suite B describes the following alogrithms: 128 and 256-bit AES for encryption 256 and 384-bit curve ECDH for key exchange 256 and 384-bit Elliptic Curve Signature Algorithm for digital signatures SHA-25…

The Yang of Open Standards, the Yin of Open Source

…they are indispensable, the foundation upon which every internetworking protocol is based, the pre-requisite of interoperability, so naturally we take open standards seriously, the yang side, as it were.  But what is often overlooked, just as the case with the yin of food in Saltman’s parallel, is the yin of open source, some of which is in fact the implementation, the other side, or yin as it were, of these open standards and more, with things l…
