Fireside Chat with Silicon Valley VP Mike Skurko and Jason Landers Director of Systems Engineering at TrustInSoft – December 5th
Title: A “Mathe-magical” Shift Left in the SDLC – Zero Day Eradication!
Synopsis: In this casual fireside chat Jason Landers and I will discuss the SDLC and the ongoing BIG PROBLEM: Typically business drivers insist we release code and that with the existing methodologies of SAST, DAST, Fuzzing, and manual code review it is not possible to ensure full coverage and that you have found all of the bugs in code – in particular the issues of undefined behaviors and buffer overflows. (These are the big ones in the news with no-click access to iOS and Android devices.) We will discuss this gold standard of testing which – when using Formal Methods allows for a mathematical proof that your code will run as intended. For safety-critical and cybersecurity concerns – particularly with the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) of cell phones as the use case de jour for Formal Methods. This methodology is changing the world of code testing to ensure an end to the conundrum of the shift left in the SDLC and the business drivers that typically have ensured that code has traditionally been released with bugs.
