Lately there has been a lot of presentations on the topic of security and how that is everybody's job. This presentation is an extensive list of examples when things went the wrong way, all coming from the open source world.
I will talk a bit about tools and a few techniques that we use in the Kiwi TCMS project to discover security threats and make the software better. This also extends not only to the code we write but to the rest of... (view more) the Python/Node.js eco-system that we depend on.
The principles also extend to infrastructure and many times we do forget that testing infrastructure can also be a target and quite often very easy to exploit.

We will review the origins of cryptography, from the classical cryptography used by ancient civilizations to the modern cryptography of the 21st century. We will discuss cases of use in each era, we will see their evolution over time and a general analysis of the cryptography applied in modern systems. Some risk risks in the area of security will be exposed. The aim of the paper is to inform both initiates and experts of the importance of... (view more) the science of cryptology in our lives.

How many vulnerabilities are found daily? Are companies doing effective policies about OSS?
Companies are getting aware very slowly. The risk is out there, but they are not conscious. No matter how secure is the code being implemented in the company, if no cybersecurity verification is done for the OSS components, hackers will get into IT company.
Come to my presentation, and you will receive some recommendations for your... (view more) company
I was University Professor in the University Plotécnica Madrid (Spain) during five years. My recent speech was in a Cybersecurity Master and one month ago I organize a Cybersecurity Event in Madrid. And previously I have presented too many times. I am sure, my presentation will be a sucess
