MCP Identity Management and Security Seminar
MCP Identity Management and Security Seminar originally planned to be held in March 2022 will be held on 24 September 2022 at IALA headquarters.
The seminar will give both an overall introduction to MCP, with a focus on identity management and security, as well as in-depth practical guidance on how to utilize the MCP in this context. The seminar will be aimed at organizations that either wish to deploy services that utilize the MCP or wish to operate an MCP themselves.
Registration must be done prior to participation. Registration is on the IALA website.
Participation is free – and is also open to non-IALA members!
The information exchanged can be almost of any nature, ranging from private confidential information between a vessel and the shore office of the shipowner, to public information provided by authorities, such as the provision of navigational warnings.
