Innovation and Technology Transfer in Security: From the Lab to General Use
8:00 a.m. – 9:10 a.m. – Room 310
Paul Kocher, president and chief scientist at CRI, and executives at Cigital, Fortify Software, the National Science Foundation, and the Naval Postgraduate School
In this session, Paul Kocher will join other distinguished innovation experts and entrepreneurs to discuss their experiences in making technology transfer work; exploring key gaps in a system where security technologies move from start-ups, to early adopters, to global technologies.
Minding the App Store - Protecting Software and Device Features
9:30 a.m. – 10:10 a.m. – Room 302
Benjamin Jun, vice president & chief technology officer at CRI
This talk focuses on “app store” business models—the shiny new platform capabilities that can be unleashed with simple enablement messages, and the potential vulnerabilities that occur when locked features are valuable. Learn developer techniques for protecting platform features, building infrastructure for cryptographic authorization management, and defending software clients from unauthorized upgrades.

Is Your Mobile Device Radiating Keys?
8:00 a.m. – 8:50 a.m. – Room 305
Benjamin Jun, vice president & chief technology officer at CRI and Gary Kenworthy, senior principal engineer at CRI
In this session, CRI will explain why EM emission from mobile devices may be leaking cryptographic keys. A mobile app can inadvertently radiate secret data as cryptographic processing is done by the CPU. The session will include a live demonstration where a simple antenna and radio are used to perform key extractions from several modern handheld devices. Participants will learn several techniques developers can use to mitigate risk whenever applications use high-valued cryptographic keys.
