Advances in Linux Security
Linux security is exploding in the mobile and embedded spaces. New security paradigms based on everything from enhanced user experience to run time integrity checks are being envisioned, developed and deployed at a mind boggling pace.
This year's Security Mini-conf will focus on these new developments
and the systems that employ them. We expect to see talks on leading edge systems such as Android, Chromiumos and Tizen. There will be updates on the existing security modules and distributions.
Casey Schaufler has been working with operating systems since the late 1970's, and security since the middle of the 1980's. During that time he has been a leader in standards based open systems and open source security. He was the architect for Trusted IRIX and technical editor for the POSIX work that is the basis for several Linux security features. He has worked on security for super-computers, embedded devices, workstations and cell phones. Currently, he is working in the open source technology center at Intel.
