The Role of Human Behavior in Security & the Future – Ev Kontsevoy – PSW #757
Hackers rarely break through crypto or exploit fancy zero days. Most of the time they simply login using stolen credentials. Managing passwords, keys and other forms of secrets does not work at scale. In this segment we’ll look into a more radical approach to infrastructure security: getting rid of secrets entirely and moving to access control based on physical properties of humans and machines.
