Security protocols often assume an accurate, local clock (e.g. TLS, Kerberos, DNSSEC and more). It's a widely accepted assumption when designing protocols but, for a lot of people, it just isn't true. We find good evidence that at least 25% of all certificate errors in Chrome are due to a bad local clock. Even when the local clock is being synchronised, it's very likely to be using unauthenticated NTP.

Why CGC Matters to Me

ForAllSecure

By David Brumley. In 2008 I started as a new assistant professor at CMU. I sat down, thought hard about what I had learned from graduate school, and tried to figure out what to do next. My advisor in graduate school was Dawn Song , one of the top scholars in computer security. She would go on to win a MacArthur "Genius" Award in 2010. She's a hard act to follow. I was constantly reminded of this because, by some weird twist of fate, I was given her office when she moved from CMU to Berkeley.

memcpy (and friends) with NULL pointers

Imperial Violet

The C standard (ISO/IEC 9899:2011) has a sane-seeming definition of memcpy (section 7.24.2.1): The memcpy function copies n characters from the object pointed to by s2 into the object pointed to by s1. Apart from a prohibition on passing overlapping objects, I think every C programmer understands that.

Cryptographic Agility

( These are notes that I wrote up from a talk that I gave at the National Academies Forum on Cyber Resilience. You can tell that it was in Washington, DC because of the “cyber”. I wasn't quite sure how technical to pitch this talk so it's relatively introductory; regular readers probably know all this. This isn't a transcript of what I said, but I try to hit the main points in my notes. ). Firstly I'd like to separate extensibility from agility.

Marketing-Led Post-COVID-19 Growth Strategies

Businesses are laying off workers, shutting their doors (some permanently), and struggling to react to the radical destruction that coronavirus (COVID-19) is doing to our society and communities. Most have already sustained massive damage, and we still have yet to see the scope of impact of the global pandemic that has upended the globe. Any return to normalcy may seem far-off, but sales and marketing are on the front lines of restarting the economy. When the dust settles, we have a responsibility to turn our shock and grief into fierce determination, and lead the charge of responsible, strategic, sustainable future growth. However, there’s no team better suited to lead that charge than the marketing department. Marketers are uniquely positioned to provide creative solutions to aid their organization in times of change and chart a course for navigating success.
