“Threat Modeling Lessons From Star Wars”
by Adam Shostack

Everyone knows you ought to threat model, but in practical reality it turns out to be tricky. If past efforts to threat model haven’t panned out, perhaps part of the problem is confusion over what works, and how the various approaches conflict or align. This talk captures lessons from years of work helping people throughout the software industry threat model more effectively.  It’s designed to help security pros, developers and systems managers, all of whom will leave with both threat modeling lessons from Star Wars and a proven foundation, enabling them to threat model effectively.

Adam is an entrepreneur, technologist, author and game designer. He’s a member of the BlackHat Review Board, and helped found the CVE and many other things. He’s currently building his 5th startup, focused on improving security effectiveness, and mentors startups as a Mach37 Star Mentor. While at Microsoft, he drove the Autorun fix into Windows Update, was the lead designer of the SDL Threat Modeling Tool v3 and created the “Elevation of Privilege” game. Adam is the author of “Threat Modeling: Designing for Security,” and the co-author of “The New School of Information Security.”

DC206 Mailing List is Temporarily Down

Posted in Uncategorized at 08:15 by admin

For those that have been wondering what happened to the DC206 mailing list for the last week, here’s an update.

  • On Monday 5/30 the box that hosts the mailing list went down unexpectedly. We initially believed that there was too much draw on the UPS and that was causing boxes to brown out.
  • By Thursday 6/2 we concluded that the power supply in the server had failed. You could smell that the magic smoke had been let out of the PSU. We replaced the PSU in the server and it *seemed* to fix the problem till the unexpected shutdowns happened again. From what we can tell the PSU died and like some sort of copper and aluminum asshole, damaged he motherboard on the way out.

So, when will things be back up and operational? Unfortunately we are looking at another week to get the box fixed. The timing on this couldn’t be worse. Between a rush project at work and Toorcamp, I have had minimal cycles to work on this. Once I return from Toorcamp I will get a new mobo in the box and get us back up and running.

I apologize for any inconvenience this is causing.


Yes we still exist
