Rise of Machines: The New Machine Identity Threat

Presented by

Kevin Bocek, VP, Security Strategy & Threat Intelligence, Yana Blachman, Principal Threat intelligence analyst, Venafi

About this talk

The number of machines of all types – from Kubernetes, to cloud, to IoT – is on the rise. Every machine requires an identity – TLS, SSH, and code signing keys and certificates – that control encryption, authentication, and code execution. Too often these powerful security controls are left unprotected. Compromise, misuse, and fraud of machine identities are already prime attack vectors for hackers targeting supply chain weaknesses. For all these reasons and more, Gartner has named Machine Identity Management a top cyber trend for 2021. Attend this session to learn: · The top machine identity attacks targeting your organisation and software supply chain · How SSL/TLS, SSH, and code signing keys and certificates are left unprotected · How to use the machine identity threat model built on standard ATT&CK · Three things your organisation can do today to stay #fastsecure with Machine Identity Management

There are two actors on a network: people and machines. People rely on usernames and passwords to identify themselves and gain access to machines, applications and devices. Machines use digital keys and certificates to authenticate for secure machine-to-machine communication. While organizations spend billions of dollars each year on identity and access management and protecting usernames and passwords, very little is spent on protecting machine identities, which is essential to securing critical systems and data. The Venafi Platform delivers the machine identity intelligence and automation necessary to automatically safeguard the flow of information to trusted machines and prevent communication with untrusted ones—all at machine speed and scale.
