Mike Shaver and I will be speaking at Blackhat August 1-2, 2007 on Firefox Security. It looks like there will be a number of Mozilla folks in attendance. I hope to see some of you there.
Building and Breaking the Browser
Traditional software vendors have little interest in sharing the gory details of what is required to secure a large software project. Talking about security only draws a spotlight to what is generally considered a weakness. Mozilla is using openness and transparency to better secure its products and help other software projects do the same.
Window Snyder and Mike Shaver will introduce these tools at BlackHat Las Vegas 2007 and discuss methods used to identify vulnerabilities in Firefox; plans for expanding the scope of Mozilla’s work on Web security, and how Mozilla’s security community uses openness and transparency to protect 100 million users around the world. Learn how to apply Mozilla’s tools and techniques to secure your own software, and get an early look at new security features for Firefox 3.
