Presentation Title
The burden of faulty TLS implementations

The TLS protocol - by far the most important cryptographic protocol in use today - came under much more scrutiny during the past years. Attacks against the protocol itself and against implementations have made headlines.

Faulty implementations can enable attacks. In some cases they can even be a security risk for uninvolved third parties and endanger the whole TLS ecosystem. Especially so-called Enterprise devices that have their own TLS stack are often a reason for concern.

The speaker will give an overview of implementation errors that happened in various TLS stacks and will shed light on this underappreciated problem.
