How to Fix Cybersecurity - From Patching Leaks to Building Better Dams

Presented by

Tatu Ylonen, Founder & SSH Fellow, SSH Communications Security, Inc.

About this talk

This talk will address how we need to develop and configure systems and software to eliminate common forms of malware and exploits. It is an engineering challenge that requires substantial change in tools and how we write applications and operating systems and how we design hardware. None of it is rocket science, but the pieces must be put together. Viewers will learn about: - Attack vectors and hidden risks - How to build better dams, rather than trying to patch every leak and crack Do we want our dams to be strong and safe, or is it more important to ensure that we can easily blow up the dams of any opponents, even if ours will break too? As a society increasingly living downstream of the dams, building better dams is a matter of survival. Presented by a 20+ year security pioneer and inventor of SSH (Secure Shell, the de facto standard for system administration) and the principal author of NIST IR 7966 (guidelines for managing SSH access).
