Track: Building Security

The cost of building defensible infrastructure is many times greater than the cost of successfully attacking it. Unfortunately, the security community has historically not been particularly open about sharing core pieces of their non-business critical security infrastructure. This has led to the proliferation of different solutions to the exact same problems (e.g., secret distribution, service to service communications, logging, etc.), and the waste of an incredibly rare resource: good engineering time.

The goal of this track is to bring together a diverse mix of experts and enthusiasts from industry and academia, for a day of highly technical, engaging presentations, leading to the open sharing of new and fruitful ideas.

The security community must strive for higher degrees of solution sharing and reuse, improving its collective efficiency and fostering a more effective giveback to the ecosystem, by releasing, supporting, and publicly presenting solutions and the open-source software that implements them. Hopefully, this track will be a sizable contribution in this direction.
