Jeremy Epstein’s IEEE SecDev 2016 talk available now


“Developing Automated Analysis Tools for Space/Time Sidechannel Detection.”

Secure development is now more than just avoiding buffer overruns, SQL injections, and so on. It’s about recognizing new classes of vulnerabilities. Secure software development has evolved over the last 20 years, but we’re still looking for the same types of problems:
  • First generation (buffer overflow,SQL injection, and so on) are well understood.
  • Second order issues (side channels, algorithmic exploits) are much more difficult to find and understand.
