I’m also invited to speak on a Symantec panel, “Securing Code & Apps”. On the panel I will highlight some of the Java platform security improvements as they relate to code-siging. Recently, we released Java 7 Update 51 (January 2014) we changed the defaults to require signed Applet code – a significant improvement. Legacy unsigned code is still supported but not by default. From my perspective, the panel is a good opportunity to educate attendees on platform changes.
For someone who was not planning to attend, I sure have plenty to do. I’m excited to see colleges again, honored to participate a panel, and most of all welcome the opportunity to educate on security. See you at RSA.
