The 2018 Linux Security Summit North America (LSS-NA) was held last month in Vancouver, BC.
Attendance continued to grow this year, with a record of 220+ attendees. Our room was upgraded as a result, with spectacular views.
We also had many great proposals and the schedule ended up being a very tight fit. We’ve asked for an extra day for LSS-NA next year — here’s hoping.

Once again, as is typical, the conference was focused around development, somewhat uniquely in the world of security conferences. It’s interesting to see more attention seemingly being paid to the lower parts of the stack: secure booting, firmware, and hardware roots of trust, as well as the continued efforts in hardening the kernel.
LWN provided some excellent coverage of LSS-NA:

Thanks to everyone involved in the event for 2018: the speakers, attendees, the program committee, the sponsors, and the organizing team at the Linux Foundation. LSS-NA would not be possible without all of you!
