Presentation: Modern mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets have become fully general computing systems with a rich third party application ecosystem and user experience. As such, the same security problems that have long plagued the personal computer (PC) industry are becoming increasingly evident on mobile devices. Addressing these threats effectively requires a secure foundation, including both hardware and software mechanisms. In this talk, Stephen will lay out a vision for secure mobile computing, including a discussion of the roles that virtualization, trusted computing, and secure operating systems play in an overall security architecture.

Bio: Stephen Smalley is a Computer Security Researcher in the Trusted Systems Research organization of the US National Security Agency (NSA). He presently leads the NSA’s Security Enhancements (SE) for Android project, which is advancing the state of the art in mobile operating system security. Previously, he led the development and successful technology transfer of Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) to mainline Linux and co-developed Flexible Mandatory Access Controls (FMAC) for the OpenSolaris project.
