Security Instrumentation Is the Future of All Software

Building security in has failed. After decades of attempts to improve software security, vulnerability rates are still staggering, attacks are increasing in volume and severity, development speed is increasing, and we have perennial talent shortages.  In essence, we have been unable to push security into software through software development. But maybe there’s another way. Using instrumentation, we can add security capabilities to already compiled applications without changing any code. Just a few examples of these new capabilities include:
  • Intrusion detection so applications can diagnose attacks
  • Automatic self-reporting of software bill of materials (SBOM)
  • Dynamic software composition analysis (DSCA)
  • Interactive security testing for detecting novel vulnerabilities
  • Runtime protection to make vulnerabilities unexploitable
Future applications won’t be static executables, but will be the result of dynamically merging business logic and powerful security capabilities. Dynamic instrumentation is a safe and powerful way for development and security teams to collaborate. Come learn from the inventor how instrumentation works, how it is already enhancing the security of applications in thousands of organizations, and what the future holds for this powerful technology.

Co-founder and CTO, Contrast Security
I've been in security since the late 1980's and have been blessed with the opportunity to help start three great application security organizations: Contrast Security, OWASP, and Aspect Security (recently sold to EY).I'm coming to LASCON to meet *you*. I'm easy to find :-) and love... Read More →
