Looking back at BlackHat
BlackHat USA may have been wrapped up for the year but DEFCON is in full swing. I didn’t stay around for DEFCON though, which means I finally have some time to reflect on BlackHat.
This year featured the first time Apple presented at BlackHat, about iOS security. While the presentation lacked the details usually seen in BH talks it definitely showed Apple is trying to open up. Being (more) communicative is vital to doing security response right.
This is of particular importance for Apple as there were quite a few talks focusing on Apple’s security. Ranging from attacks on iOS to Mac-oriented EFI rootkits.
