With the steady rise of new devices and the growing capabilities of existing ones, the average user logs into networks, applications, or platforms from a variety of different devices. While device flexibility is great from a user perspective, it also represents significant security challenges to organizations.

We’ll show you key trends that affect the security of your team, real-life examples of how both GitLab and Yubico work to improve security, and provide advice on industry best practices. Register here!

  • Speaking Session – Breaking FIDO: Are Exploits in There?
    Jerrod Chong  |  VP, Solutions Engineering, Yubico
    Location:  South Seas GH

    Date: Thursday, August 4 | 2:30pm-2:55pm

    The state of authentication is in such disarray today that a black hat is no longer needed to wreak havoc. One avenue to authentication improvement is offered by the FIDO Alliance’s open specifications built around public key cryptography. Does FIDO present a better mousetrap? Are there security soft spots for potential exploitation, such as man-in-the-middle attacks, exploits aimed at supporting architecture, or compromises targeting physical hardware? We will pinpoint where vulnerabilities are hidden in FIDO deployments, how difficult they are to exploit, and how enterprises and organizations can protect themselves.
