Fixing transport security

Presented by

Nicholas Sullivan

About this talk

It’s been a tough couple years for crypto protocols. Almost every month a new vulnerability in TLS is announced that causes panic and distress to the security and IT communities. In this talk I’ll explain the latest set of cryptographic vulnerabilities in an accessible manner. By the end of the talk you’ll hopefully know the difference between FREAK, LogJam, DROWN, Sweet32, POODLE and SLOTH. We’ll be breaking good crypto and bad with side-channels, signing oracles and downgrades. I’ll also explain how the latest changes to TLS are supposed to fix things and how the entire house of cards may topple once quantum computers arrive.
