June General Meeting

Philip Chong

Security Lessons From Lockpicks and POODLEs

Speaker: Philip Chong, Software Engineer Senior Staff, Synopsys

As software has grown in importance to everyone, so has the domain of security shifted from physical to digital concerns. This talk describes two seemingly disparate attacks on security-related systems and looks at some interesting similarities between them. Additionally, the significance of oracles in secure systems is discussed.

Philip Chong enjoys puzzles and algorithms. He holds a BASc in Computer Engineering from the University of Waterloo, a PhD in EECS from the University of California, Berkeley, and a locksmith certificate. He currently works as part of the Software Integrity Group at Synopsys.

7:00 PM, Tuesday, June 22, 2021
