Abstract: What's Hiding in Your Software Components? Hidden Risks of Component-Based Software Development
Software is no longer written, it's assembled. With 80% of a typical application now being assembled from components, it's time to take a hard look at the new risks posed by this type of development -- and the processes and tools that we'll need in order to keep them in check.
Join Ryan Berg as he shares real world data on component risks, outlines the scope of the problem, and proposes approaches for managing these risks. You'll learn how security professionals can work cooperatively with application developers to reduce risk AND boost developer efficiency.
Ryan is the Chief Security Officer at Sonatype. Before joining Sonatype, Ryan was a co-founder and chief scientist for Ounce Labs which was acquired by IBM in 2009. Ryan holds multiple patents and is a popular speaker, instructor and author, in the fields of security, risk management, and secure application development. Prior to Ounce Labs, Ryan co-founded Qiave Technologies, a pioneer in kernel-level security, which later sold to WatchGuard Technologies in 2000. In the late 1990's, Ryan also designed and developed the infrastructure for GTE Internetworking/Genuity's appliance-based managed security services.
