FROC2010 Abstract Wheeler
The Presentation: "Vulnerabilities in Secure Code - Now and Beyond"
Secure coding practices have advanced significantly within the past decade. Yet, vulnerabilities remain despite the huge advances in secure coding practices. This presentation will discuss real world vulnerabilities in widely deployed server and networking code bases having gone through rigorous automated and manual analysis. Ultimately, the participants are provided fruitful areas and methods to audit against code certified by our industry’s top security programs.
