Bugs ruin everything
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.

Let’s talk about how we’re beginning to mitigate some of these platform-level risks by hardening the defaults, removing barriers to TLS deployment, and giving developers access to new APIs that can be used to lock themselves down even further.
Can Security Keep Up the Pace with Frictionless IT?
Public cloud services made personal IT incredibly fast and easy to use. And now consumers expect the same kind of frictionless experience from enterprise IT. The demand for “frictionless IT” is growing and will be the only acceptable IT for new generations of business users. This demand is reshaping how applications are designed, developed, and released. Is the security industry ready to support this revolution?
