Matt Butler will present his C++Now 2018 talk in preparation for his official presentation in May.
Computer systems are under siege 24 hours a day, day in and day out. The critical security infrastructure designed to protect those systems, won't:
* Perimeter security won't protect you.
* Network analytics won't protect you.
* Virus scanners won't protect you.
* Even the users who should know better than to click on that too-good-to-be-true offer won't protect you.
The other side has the best security hardware and software systems other people's money can buy and they have all the time in the world to find creative ways to defeat them. Meltdown and Spectre are prime examples security vulnerabilities that have lurked dormant for decades. Or have they? If your systems are in any way connected to the outside world, the other side will get inside the wire on you. Know that going in.
While Modern C++ is designed to be secure, the ways we use it often aren't. And with each vulnerability comes new questions. We'll cover this and more.
