Voice of Security Radio: Finding Vulnerabilities on the IoT
It's easy (and quite common) to say that the Internet of Things is a massive pile of security vulnerabilities, but when it comes time to figure out precisely what those vulnerabilities are, things get a little more complicated. On this episode of Voice of Security Radio, we'll cut through the clutter and make things a little simpler when it comes to finding bugs and vulnerabilities in the IoT.
Bugcrowd is a crowd-source vulnerability and bug search site that uses gamification to encourage users to seek out and disclose problems with hardware and software. Our guest for this episode is Bugcrowd CEO Casey Ellis, who will talk with Security Now editor Curt Franklin about just what it takes to track down issues in the smallest computing devices on your network.
According to the Bugcrowd.com web site: Casey has spent 13 years in information security, servicing clients ranging from startups to multinational corporations as a security and risk consultant and solutions architect. He’s a career infosec guy turned career entrepreneur. Casey pioneered the Bug Bounty as a Service model, launching the first programs on Bugcrowd in 2012. He is happy as long as he’s got a problem to solve, an opportunity to develop, and a kick ass group of people to bring along for the ride.
