Lubrano Conference Room

Distributed applications increasingly rely on messaging systems to provide secure, uninterrupted service within acceptable throughput and latency parameters. This is difficult to guarantee in a complex network environment that is susceptible to a multitude of human or electronic threats, especially as network attacks have become more sophisticated and harder to contain. Security is a critical component of the survivability of such distributed messaging systems that operate in a dynamic network environment and communicate over insecure networks such as the Internet.
