RIM Explains PlayBook FIPS Government Certification & More

 FIPS Certification PlayBook Interview

The BlackBerry PlayBook became the first and only FIPS US government certified tablet this month which is a pretty big milestone for RIM. While their smartphones are certified RIM has already had the BlackBerry PlayBook cryptographic kernel certified for government use which opens up the doors for the biggest tech consumer in the US to purchase them.

RIM has thankfully posted a video interview with Michael K. Brown, Director of Security Product Management at RIM, to explain a bit about what FIPS certification is and why it is so important. He also explains why this kind of security certification is essential for government clients alongside healthcare and financial clients. Check out the video below including the golf carts driving by in the background… :)

  1. Cool! Yea. Seems like RIM is beginning to open up these days

  2. Great video! But for an interview you would think whoever is recording would focus on who is being interviewed or what is being interviewed but instead he focus on the hands of Michael K. Brown thats really weird and you can see that he is married too.

    Well the blackberry playbook is the first FIPS US government certified tablet lets us hope it remains that way for quite sometime :)

  3. Anybody noticed the other tablets/device on his table behind him at the end of the video? Can someone zoom in and see if it’s the 10in playbook?
