San Francisco—The RSA Conference—which ran from Feb. 24 to Feb. 28 at the Moscone Center here—was bigger than ever. Packed with vendors and sessions, the event took up space at the Moscone North and South facilities as well as Moscone West, where the majority of speaker sessions were held.

Aside from the real rain clouds that covered the sky and drenched attendees during the week of the show, the big dark cloud hovering over the entire conference was the issue of RSA Security’s involvement with the National Security Agency (NSA). It’s a topic that was addressed by Art Coviello, executive chairman of RSA, in the event’s opening keynote.

The NSA itself was very visible and physically present at the event in a booth on the show floor that included a captured German Enigma code machine from World War II.

The NSA wasn’t the only U.S. government agency represented at RSA; the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) were present on the show floor and in the keynote hall with a speech from FBI Director James Comey. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at what transpired at this year’s RSA event.
