HITB Malaysia 2009 and sandboxing

No time for details at the moment, but I'm just back from HITB Malaysia and a great time was had by all! The hospitality and warmth of the organizing crew surpassed anything I've ever encountered before.

I presented with my colleague Julien Tinnes. See awesome blog:


We presented on various intriguing aspects of sandboxing on Linux, covering vsftpd and Chromium as test cases. Our slides are located here:

Security in Depth for Linux Software

As per other presentations, I'll leave it at that for now and follow up with a mini series of posts for the more interesting points. I think vsftpd is well covered by previous posts, but Chromium on Linux is awesome and its built-in sandboxing deserves a few notes.
