Presentation Title
OpenSSL after HeartBleed

OpenSSL is the most widely-deployed TLS library in the world. A simple programming mistake -- failing to check an output length -- shook up the project and generated a "re-key the Internet" event. We'll discuss what has happened within the project since then: an expanded team, increased transparency, more rigorous development processes, and greatly increased vitality.
