Slides from my Security Subsystem Overview at LinuxCon Japan 2012

Whoops. Looks like I forgot to post my slides from last year’s LinuxCon Japan talk on the Linux kernel security subsystem.

Here they are:


I’ll be giving an update at the upcoming LinuxCon Japan in Tokyo in a couple of weeks.

Kernel Security Talk at LinuxCon Japan

Just to let folk know — I’ll be giving a talk on the state of Linux kernel security development at LinuxCon Japan in Yokohama on June 8th. From the abstract:

In this talk, we’ll examine the current state of the Linux kernel security subsystem. Starting with a brief overview of existing features, we’ll discuss recent developments, current efforts and future directions. We’ll also discuss the evolving threat landscape, and the increasing need for mobile and cloud security. This will be a high-level technical discussion aimed at IT professionals. A good general knowledge of operating system and computer security concepts will be advantageous.

I’ll also likely be in Tokyo briefly — if any kernel security development folk there want to meet up, let me know.
