To secure connected products, developers and manufacturers must use tools and processes that are purpose built to analyze the complex binaries found within connected devices and embedded systems. Beyond the capabilities of traditional security tooling, dedicated product security (software supply chain security) tools must run in the specialized languages, systems, and deployment cycles for these connected devices. In this talk hosted by Finite State's Jason Ortiz, we will examine where traditional security falls short in analyzing the composition of a device, detecting its vulnerabilities, assessing the severity of those vulnerabilities, prioritizing and conducting response actions. In this session, you will learn how traditional tools can't always see the opaque threats that live inside connected devices, explore Software Bill of Materials (SBOMs) and how to generate them, and discover how to build a product security strategy that leads to more secure products and software supply chains.
