Attack Surface Reduction - Douglas Goldstein, Star Lab

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The attack surface for a software environment is defined as the sum of the different points an unauthorized user can enter or extract data from the environment. This talk aims to discuss ways to reduce hypervisor capabilities and code space to provide a meaningful reduction in attack surface. Doug Goldstein will cover areas of the hypervisor that have been made optional already to provide background as well as discussing future areas that can be made optional. The audience is encouraged to participate to flesh out future work in this area.
