Charlie Miller, our special guest, will present the keynote talk “Bugs ruin everything“:
Abstract: In this talk, I’ll briefly discuss some popular forms of finding vulnerabilities and why it is so difficult to find these flaws. I’ll then walk through examples of some of my favorite bugs, including some of which I’ve discovered over the years, and discuss in these cases why they were particularly difficult to find, why common techniques may have failed on them, or why they were especially impactful.

He has authored three information security books and holds a PhD from the University of Notre Dame. He has hacked browsers, phones, cars, and batteries.
