Lecture: BetterCrypto: Applied Crypto Hardening
deploying strong, fast and sound cryptography from an operational perspective
The BetterCrypto Project started out in the fall of 2013 as a collaborative community effort by systems engineers, security engineers, developers and cryptographers to build up a sound set of recommendations for strong cryptography and privacy enhancing technologies catered towards the operations community in the face of overarching wiretapping and data-mining by nation-state actors. The project has since evolved with a lot of positive feedback from the open source and operations community in general with input from various browser vendors, linux distribution security teams and researchers. This talk will give a concise guide on how to properly deploy networked services in a secure fashion that is applicable today. We will also give an update on the project as well as new development on the front of cryptography, attacks and TLS protocol standardization.
