Towards a LangSec-aware SDLC presented at troopers 2016

by Jacob Torrey,

Summary : The keynote of TROOPERS'15 by Prof. Sergey Bratus highlighted the findings of language-theoretical security (LangSec) vis-a-vis how many classes of vulnerabilities stem from computational and grammar complexity. This talk is aimed at software developers and project managers who are looking to enhance their SDLC with LangSec-supported practices. Actionable techniques, tools and methods will be provided to integrate LangSec findings into the software your organizations develop to reduce the defect rate and improve security. Also highlighted will be major development organizations that have developed coding best-practices that are well-aligned with LangSec, thus showing the empirical benefits to these changes to the SDLC.
