The Goodness is Baked In: Baking Assurance into Software - Ebony (Davi Ottenheimer) (BSides Las Vegas 2013) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

The Goodness is Baked In: Baking Assurance into Software - Ebony (Davi Ottenheimer)

In an ever-changing world where the technological dependence is ever increasing — the government wants to provide transparency, everyone has 500+ friends on Facebook, your kids can use the computer better than you can, your bank allows transfers on the fly, you can meet your next first date (or your future ex) based on an algortihm, you can apply for a loan, or even look up medical records… In a world of Big Data, data mining, network breaches and the cloud, what is the first line of defense for your important, personal, private info'!

Software Assurance.

This talk will discuss the various definitions of software assurance, who it relates to, as well as the ownership. We will talk about the recent law that was passed National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 (NDAA) and what it means to software assurance and career developers everywhere. We'll wrap up the discussion by highlighting some common vulnerabilities of software, suggestions for incorporating it into development and testing and finally several options for practice.
