Will Rust Solve Software Security?
The Rust programming language makes some strong claims about the security of Rust code. In this webcast, David Svoboda and Joe Sible will evaluate the Rust programming language from a cybersecurity perspective. They will examine Rust's security model, both in what it promises and its limitations. They will also examine how secure Rust code has been seen in practice and conclude with discussing the overall maturity and stability of the Rust ecosystem.
What attendees will learn:
- The Rust Security Model
- Limitations of the Rust Security Model
- Rust code in the current vulnerability ecosystem
- Rust code stability and maturity
