Are you ready for the next big thing in cryptography? Actually, it’s a trick question. Ask 5 different people what the “next big thing” will be and you’ll get at least 5 different answers. Will […]
In the latest Cloakware Cate video Catherine shows us how commonly available tools like debuggers can be used, with live data, by a hacker to effectively subvert an application. This simple demonstration captures the essentials […]
In the field of software security, the term ‘obfuscation’ is often used, particularly when it is desired to protect software in a fully automated, “hands-free” manner. Software obfuscation is the modification of source-code (or sometimes […]
Continuous Integration, also know as CI, is an important part of modern software development. In fact it is a real game changer when Continuous Integration is introduced into an organisation, since it radically alters the way teams think about the whole development process.
We’ve just introduced a new Youtube video series by Cloakware Cate. Our Senior Architect, Catherine, will show you the tools and techniques hackers use to reverse engineer your apps in preparation for hacking your code, […]
This past week I’ve been reading the specifications for Trusted Platform Modules (TPM) published by the Trusted Computing Group of companies. It seems to me they’ve done a lot of things right, but a TPM is […]
We’ve started creating short, succinct videos on YouTube to help explain key concepts and issues around protecting keys, code and data associated with embedded systems. One series is Stacy Janes “Old-School Car Guy” which explains […]
Software Protection: Integrity, Diversity, Entanglement and Renewability (SPIDER) We’ve spent a lot of time finding a suitable analogy to explain the more subtle aspects of defense in depth and the multi-layered approach to cybersecurity that […]
As someone who works with cloud solutions for a security company, I am very aware of the stories in various media about security breaches in cloud accounts. Usually these are along the lines of “Company […]
Ofttimes it has been difficult to explain the role of software protection in hardware-protected secure systems, but recently security researchers have helped us out by providing many examples of zero-day exploits where flaws that are baked into hardware or firmware lead to exploitable vulnerabilities in systems. In this article we are having a look at Spectre & Meltdown and explore how these attacks could have been avoided using application protection technology.
