Lessons Learned from Development and Release of Blacksmith (The Meltdown Defense Tool For Linux)
Jared Phipps

ShowMeCon 2018
http://www.showmecon.com

At the end of 2017, security researchers identified flaws in architecture and the speculative execution implemented in various chips, resulting in the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities. Security researchers at SentinelOne used behavioral detection methods to develop a tool that is capable of detecting any Meltdown exploits and attempts on Linux machines. SentinelOne released this tool for free as "Blacksmith". The development process required interfacing and collecting from chip manufacturers, industry partners like Microsoft, as well as the security research community in general. Insights from this process will be shared in hopes that lessons learned can be passed on to the greater community.

Bio: Jared has been involved in cybersecurity professionally since 2001, and is passionate not only about technology, but also with effective use of technology to solve real problems. He is currently the Vice President of Worldwide Sales Engineering at SentinelOne, where he gets to use his passion for technology and experience in cybersecurity daily as he advises various prospects and clients through security projects. He spent the prior 6 years leading various teams at Fidelis Cybersecurity, including sales engineering, processional services and incident response teams. Prior to joining Fidelis he worked for MITRE supporting NSA Cryptographic Modernization Programs for the United States Air Force. Jared is a veteran of the United States Air Force where he worked in cyber defense and the full spectrum of Information Operations.
