Linux Desktop Insecurity

A session at CONFidence 2013

  • Ilja van Sprudel

Tuesday 28th May, 2013

12:00pm to 12:50pm (WMT)

I used to use Linux and the bsd’s. Then mostly switched to windows 6-7 years ago. I recently found some spare time and got reacquainted with the unices. Over the past weeks, I’ve spend some time assessing the local security of modern desktop unices. as it turns out, things are a total mess.

A short layout of the presentation:

  • local security of modern desktop unices
  • attack surfaces
  • bugs found
  • X client libs (attack surface, bugs, how to use them correctly and securely)
  • shadow library issue
  • a model for more secure suid binaries
