SSLFail.com brings together Security Enthusiasts who research all things SSL/TLS. Secure Sockets Layer and Transport Layer Security are an essential part of today’s Internet and they are very poorly understood by most Users and unfortunately many Administrators. There have been a number of very important developments in the area of SSL in the past year. The user’s security experience has completely changed while at the same time the Certificate Authorities have invented new products to revitalize their profits. There are dozens of ways that SSL can go horribly wrong for both the users and the administrators of today’s Internet.
The panel will discuss their latest areas of SSL research, explain the current (and newly released) attacks on SSL and the steps that Administrators and Users can do to protect themselves. Questions from the audience will be welcome as this is an interactive panel discussion.
