  • September 19, 2012

Human societies run on trust. Every day, we all trust millions of people, organizations, and systems -- and we do it so easily that we barely notice.

Ensuring defectors don't destroy the very cooperative systems they're abusing is an age-old problem.

  • July 25, 2012

Has it really been 15 years? Time flies when keeping up with Moore's law is the measure. In 1997, Jeff Moss held the very first Black Hat.

"Software could be more secure" may be the understatement of the century. Vulnerabilities have infested our code for as long as there's *been* code. Nobody refutes the notion that we want more secure code; it is getting there that is the challenge - and also the focus of this debate.

Right now, these two goals coincide, making it harder than ever to keep the Internet free and open.
