Prioritizing Security correctly

Too much security can be just as bad as to little security!
All products needs to take security into account. However, spending to much time on security can be just as bad for your product as spending to little.
In this talk, I will show why we need to treat security features just as any other functional feature, and how this can be done.
After managing security products for 15 years, I have learned some techniques that makes defining security features easier.

This is also the story of Conax - A true Norwegian Security Success history that spread from a small R&D project to a worldwide organisation, protecting billions of dollars in revenue, and putting smart cards in living rooms from Chile to China.

Root-of-trust - What it is and why you need one in IoT

Whether you know it or not, if you have ever implemented any kind of digital security mechanism, your security is rooted somewhere. This is the root-of-trust (RoT) concept. This talk will elaborate on the RoT-concept, the various types of RoTs (one example being the TPM chip found in modern computers), how they can be used, typical implementations mistakes that can happen from the developer side and why you need one if you are deploying devices in IoT.
