C++Now 2019


Both talks are now on the schedule with updated abstracts.

“Threat Hunting” will be Wednesday Afternoon 5/8 @ 14:30

“If you can’t open it, you don’t own it” will be Thursday Morning 5/9 @ 09:00

I will be giving two talks at C++Now this year, both on security.

The first is “Threat Hunting”. This is an expanded version of the talk I just gave at SnowFROC ’19. W we’ll spend more time with hands on threat hunting on a theoretical IoT system. This will cover everything from embedded systems to the Cloud and how threat hunting helps us build safer systems in Modern C++.

The second talk is “If you can’t open it, you don’t own it”. This a more speculative talk that draws a line from how hardware systems and their security vulnerabilities affect those of us who use Modern C++. No language runs closer to the hardware than C++ so when we talk about issues like Spectre and Meltdown we need to examine how hardware penetrations parallel the penetrations in C++ code. We’ll start with Roots of Trust and end with supply chains.

I’ll have updated abstracts for both talks in a week or two. In the meantime, keep an eye on the C++Now website and Twitter feed.

See you all there!
