Lastline’s Dr. Giovanni Vigna Selected to Present to Security Industry Leaders at RSA Conference 2018
Co-founder and CTO delivering two talks: Effectiveness of Automated Vulnerability Analysis plus Security Shortcomings of Ultrasonic Communications
REDWOOD CITY, CA, March 27, 2018 – Lastline Inc., the leader in advanced network-based malware protection, will be in the spotlight at the RSA Conference 2018. Co-founder and CTO, Dr. Giovanni Vigna, landed two coveted speaking spots at this premier security event. In his talk titled, “How Automated Vulnerability Analysis Discovered Hundreds of Android 0-days,” he’ll describe his recently developed and novel research techniques that have uncovered zero-days vulnerabilities in the Android OS.
“Android has become one of the world’s most deployed operating systems,“ noted Dr. Vigna. “So, it’s not a surprise that it’s being targeted by cyber-criminals. The goal of automate vulnerability analysis is to identify security bugs at scale, which is precisely what these new approaches are designed to do. And they have been quite effective, discovering hundreds of previously unidentified vulnerabilities that could be exploited by zero-day attacks.”
In addition, Dr. Vigna is joining security researcher Vasilios Mavroudis to discuss the security shortcomings, privacy issues, and mitigation techniques for ultrasonic communications, which is emerging as an alternative to Bluetooth and WiFi, and remains largely unregulated and subject to malicious use.
