Keynote: To Live and Die for Threat Modeling.
Nicolás Waisman

To Live and Die for Threat Modeling. In his keynote presentation, Nicolas Waisman will guide us through a dizzying twenty-years of computer security with a clearly offensive focus, to help us understand how it all began and how attackers have adapted to changes in technology. With this in mind, he will analyze current threat modeling and what the future of threat modeling should look like. Do we really understand what we are protecting against, or do the media and economic interests perhaps drive us to pursue imaginary players? These and other questions will be the starting point for understanding, discussing and confronting the current state of our security.

Keynote: IPv6, Internet Security, and the Internet of Insecure Things

Abstract:  The talk will cover three topics: IPv6, Internet Security, and the Internet of Insecure Things (aka IoT). For IPv6, I will cover the history of how it was developed, where we are now, and the challenges going forward.  Internet Security will cover some of the problems we are facing, Trust on the Internet, and my thoughts on secure platforms.  IoT will cover security problems with IoT, recent IoT based attacks, and my thoughts on some solutions.
