Operating Systems offer unique insights into how to write complex software securely. In this presentation, I look at how different security-focused operating systems approach security, and take a look at what their approaches mean for security students.

Key Take-aways

  • Adhering to good software development practices reduces risk
  • Reducing complexity and focusing on the best technical solutions leads to a smaller attack surface and better understood systems
  • The deep integration of hardware, applications, and operating systems leads to highly trusted environment
  • Security is a trade off with other priorities, and a fair balance is needed to produce viable software
