All the sexy of the SSL

This Meetup is past

10 people went


We’ll be discussing the SSL handshake, and what’s really going on under the hood. You don’t need to bring your calculator, but it’s all math. We’ll talk about CAs, what kind of a target they are for hackers, what they do, why, and how, and we’ll discuss Moxie and his plans to overthrow the CA world. Then we’ll talk a little about how SSL can go wrong — SSL Proxies, BEAST, CRIME, BREACH. And then we’ll talk about what could be done to counter the NSA vacuuming up all our base. What could be more sexy than that?
