Abstract: 

The world of securing the operational state of components has become an ever increasing topic amongst the industry. Much of the industry has secured the platforms upon which they operate but the sub components have become the next bastion of enforcing a security model. In this talk, we will cover the attack vectors and counter measures to head off the vulnerabilities that previously embedded firmware appeared safe. We will discuss recent events, industry initiatives, the notion of trusted firmware, and what storage users should look for in a security supporting device.

Learning Objectives:
1. Understanding the security landscape and what has ultimately changed in the industry
2. Threat modeling for the new age of protection
3. Understanding how secure trusted firmware translates into solution requirements and product guarantees
4. Learn what attestation measurements are and how they translate into proving to the platform what firmware is actually running
