At the North America edition of the 2018
Linux Security Summit (LSS NA), which was held in late August in Vancouver,
Canada, Kees Cook gave a presentation on some of the dangers that come with
programs written in C. In particular, of course, the Linux kernel is
mostly written in C, which means that the security of our systems rests on
a somewhat dangerous foundation. But there are things that can be done to
help firm things up by "Making C Less Dangerous" as the title
of his talk suggested.
