> Access in Maliceland
> John Lambert observed attackers win because while defenders think in
> lists, attackers think in graphs. Access control systems divide the system
> a priori into secure and insecure states. But that’s only worth the paper
> its printed on. A Attackers see the system as it is, for attackers, the
> access control scheme is the beginning of the game not the end. Determined
> attackers seek out access control models and then find holes that they can
> leverage. Access control systems that purport to protect the system are
> built on assumptions from which reality diverges. Application security
> needs a new approach to access control- adding feedback loops for risk
> based decisions, fine-grained, dynamic access control.
> Security is a business with a very long list of issues and requirements.
> The spreadsheets are miles long. This makes it essential to find reusable
> solution patterns that can address multiple problems.This presentation
> looks at both medium term improvements and code examples to improve access
> control decisions and overall security today
> About the Speaker
> Gunnar Peterson (@oneraindrop) focuses on security architecture consulting
> and training. Experience includes Associate Editor for IEEE Security &
> Privacy Journal, a Microsoft MVP for App security, an IANS Research Faculty
> member, a Securosis Contributing Analyst, and a Visiting Scientist at
> Carnegie Mellon Software Engineering Institute. He maintains a popular
> information security blog at http://1raindrop.typepad.com.
