Meltdown and Spectre: A Tear at the Foundation of Computer Security - CF042
This week on Cyber Frontiers we jump into full coverage of the 6-day old public disclosures of the meltdown and spectre vulnerabilities. With some issues mitigated, the news is a gravitational force that has dominated cybersecurity early into 2018 and could continue to engage industry for years to come. We discuss the short and long term security implications and performance debacles, and provide technical and non-technical explanations for the two classes of vulnerabilities disclosed. We review the mitigations users can start employing now, and discuss impacts for the average guy and the enterprise.
Cyber Frontiers is all about Exploring Cyber security, Big Data, and the Technologies Shaping the Future! Christian Johnson will bring fresh and relevant topics to the show based on the current work he does.
