Sarvega and the Center for Advanced Defense Studies Create XML Security Research Lab

CHICAGO --(Business Wire)-- Nov. 24, 2004 -- Leading Organizations Team to Investigate XML Security Threats for Global 1000 Companies and Governments

Sarvega, Inc., the leading provider of XML networking products, and the Center for Advanced Defense Studies (CADS), a renowned think tank focusing on global information security and defense initiatives, today announced the creation of the Advanced XML Security Lab ("AXSL"). The two organizations will contribute resources and expertise to AXSL to conduct advanced research into XML Web Services security, XML vulnerabilities, and the secure exchange of information amongst trading partners. Sarvega and CADS will investigate technologies that will accelerate the adoption and use of XML Web Services throughout the public and private sectors.

Located in Washington, D.C., AXSL research will have implications for multiple government and private sector information sharing initiatives and systems interoperability. Its charter includes investigation of threat scenarios and signatures that impact the deployment of XML Web Services and secure information exchange. AXSL will conduct research of technologies relevant to XML Web Services and information security with the intent of making the technologies commercially available.

"CADS is highly regarded for its considerable expertise in global defense and information security technologies and policies," said Christopher Darby, president & CEO of Sarvega. "We are proud to be associated with such a prestigious organization to investigate cyber threats and security issues surrounding XML Web Services. The formation of AXSL enables us to further our knowledge of XML and Web Services vulnerabilities and to bring relevant products to market faster. Business and government benefit from the focus and expertise that both organizations bring to the lab."

Dr. Newton Howard, founder and chairman of CADS stated, "We created the lab to accelerate the understanding of threat signatures and security issues associated with XML Web Services, and to facilitate an understanding of the issues and technologies surrounding the secure exchange of information among governments and trading partners. Sarvega is a leader in developing technologies and products that are essential to this space. Their success in government and the private sector makes Sarvega an ideal partner for CADS. We are pleased to be working with them on such an important initiative."
