Devender earned his Executive MBA from UW Seattle and MS/BS in EE from Osmania University, Hyderabad. He held over 10 patents in the areas of software, firmware, enterprise & blade servers.

Over the years, Devender made significant contributions to the Open Compute Project, which included a two-year tenure as the Project Co-Lead of Open System Firmware Project Community.

Devender is survived by his wife, Shobha and two sons; Abhinav, who is currently pursuing his Junior year in ECE at UC Berkeley and Pranav, who is a Freshman at Brown University. His family is traveling to India for last rites and to be with extended family in this time of grief.

OCP expresses their deep sense of gratitude for Devender’s passion for open-source technology and his invaluable support to our Community. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. Please direct all inquiries to Archna Haylock or Mallik Bulusu. We appreciate your patience on responses.

Regards,
Archna and Mallik

FYI: IEEE 2883 "Standard for Sanitizating of Storage" is in public review

James C Hatfield
 

This is to inform anyone with an interest in storage sanitization that a new IEEE standard is  

in public review from Nov. 15, 2021 until Jan. 14, 2022 

 

IEEE 2883 "Standard for Sanitizating of Storage" is a companion document to 

ISO/IEC 27040 "Information Technology - Security Techniques - Storage Security" 

 

ISO/IEC 27040 (revision still in development) describes high level security techniques, guidance, and requirements. 

IEEE 2883 describes HOW to sanitize storage in ways that depend on the technology (e.g., interface and media). 

 

Please send your comments to me (james.c.hatfield@...) before Jan. 10, 2022.  

Comments may be in any form (PDF, spreadsheet, email, document, etc.).  

I need to days between Jan 10-14 to collate and categorize the comments received. 

 

How you can get a copy for review:

Kali Burdette
 

2021 OCP GLOBAL SUMMIT
In-Person Attendee Requirements

COVID-19 REGULATIONS

Per the mandates set forth by the San José City Council, please review the following event requirements that will apply to all in-person attendees of the 2021 OCP Global Summit:

  • All attendees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to enter the convention center and participate in the event.
  • To be considered fully vaccinated and therefore admitted into the event, the final dose of vaccination must be completed no later than October 25, two weeks prior to the Summit start date.
  • The city of San Jose accepts all vaccines approved by the WHO.
  • A negative COVID-19 test result will not substitute for proof of vaccination.
  • Exemptions for medical or religious reasons are allowed. Paperwork must be provided as well as proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test within 72 hours of entry to the event.
  • Masks are required to be worn indoors at all times while at the event, unless you are speaking on stage, eating or drinking.

PROCESS FOR VACCINE VERIFICATION 

OCP and the SJCC are partnering with 42Chat to give attendees an opportunity to upload their proof of vaccination for pre-verification and expedited entry into the SJCC. The 42Chat tool will allow attendees to securely upload their proof of vaccination in return for a “fast pass” that may be shown upon entry to the SJCC.  Please ensure you have the correct mobile number associated with your profile/event ticket. If you are managing a group order, please be sure to update mobile numbers for all assigned tickets.

Valid forms for proof of vaccination include one of the following:
  • CDC vaccination card or similar documentation issued by another foreign governmental jurisdiction
  • Photo of a vaccination card (physical or stored on a phone or electronic device)
  • Healthcare Provider documentation of vaccination
  • Personal digital COVID-19 vaccine record with a QR code that scans to display name, date of birth, vaccine dates and vaccine type

Attendees coming from North America: 

  1. Attendees will be contacted at the end of October via text message asking you to upload your document(s) for verification. 
  2. Once uploaded, 42Chat will verify your document.
  3. If verified, you will receive a response with a green checkmark. Use this screen to expedite your entrance into the Global Summit.
  4. We encourage you to utilize this pre-verification process so that you can access the “fast pass” lanes at OCP Registration. Onsite verification lanes could delay your entry.

International Attendees coming from outside North America:  

  1. For those international travelers who won’t be able to utilize our text feature, OCP/42Chat will email you a link at the end of October to upload your vaccination documentation.
  2. Once uploaded, 42Chat will verify your document.
  3. If verified, you will receive a response with a green checkmark. Use this screen to expedite your entrance into the Global Summit.
  4. We encourage you to utilize this pre-verification process so that you can access the “fast pass” lanes at OCP Registration. Onsite verification lanes could delay your entry.

If you have any questions about the vaccine verification process, please email registration@...
