|Where:||Mozilla HQ (10-forward) and Air Mozilla (marketing site)|
|Speaker:||Dr. Markus Jakobsson|
|Subject:||"Why we must ask 'why' in designing secure systems"|
Summary: Computer security has a tradition of responding to the symptoms of problems without taking the time to ask what the sources of the problems are. Markus will argue that this approach has made the user authentication experience frustrating and vulnerable; enabled phishing; and created a tremendous market for malware. Markus will give examples of some well-known approaches that were designed without a thorough understanding of the underlying problems and limitations, and how they could be redesigned and improved. In particular, he will cover web and app spoofing; mobile passwords; and bullet-proof detection of malware.
