The eternal race between IT professionals on the one side and pirates, hackers, and crackers on the other is unfair: The attackers only have to detect and exploit a single security hole, whereas developers have to secure the entire code and consider the complete infrastructure. In the connected age, it is no longer enough to concentrate on your own software; vulnerabilities such as Spectre and Meltdown, which are embedded in the system, also put software security at risk. At devSec, security is treated as a holistic topic spanning throughout the entire product lifecycle. Software specialists will discuss how applications can be protected against weaknesses, how teams can integrate security into agile processes and continuous integration, how distributed systems can be made consistently secured, and which measures can help secure machine learning systems. Regardless of how the Corona virus situation evolves, devSec will take place and be ready to offer a virtual stage in case social life should be threatened by the pandemic.
Alvaro Forero, one of the top security experts at Wibu-Systems’ headquarters, will address the Python audience with a new lecture, Protection and Licensing of Python and Cython applications, on 21 October at noon. Python is currently at the top of the list of the most popular programming languages. 2020 is a record year for the popularity of Python: 2nd place in the RedMonk ranking and 1st place in the PYPL ranking. This scenario creates new conditions for software protection and licensing that will be covered in this talk with practical examples based on the use of CodeMeter, Wibu-Systems’ core technology for safeguarding digital assets against piracy, reverse engineering, and tampering. Additionally, Alvaro will explain how Cython can speed up Python code and how this approach can better your protections even further.
As a Gold Sponsor of the event, Wibu-Systems will bring 30 years of experience in software protection, licensing, and security to fruition. Its flagship technology has been designed with interoperability and versatility in mind so you can easily choose the modules you need, scale up as your project grows, fulfill the different requirements of your global clientele, and seamlessly integrate CodeMeter into your existing back-office process.
