Collaboration for Better Software Security

At Adobe we have found that building working relationships between developers and vulnerability researchers is to the benefit of everyone–including, and especially, the general public. We will be speaking this week on this topic at the SOURCE Seattle 2012 conference. In our talk we’ll share case studies of successful developer-researcher collaboration by examining examples of security incidents including bug reports, zero-day attacks, and incident response.

If you’re going to be at SOURCE Seattle please drop by our talk: “Why Developers and Vulnerability Researchers Should Collaborate” at 12:10pm on Thursday, September 13. We’re eager to share what we have learned from our developer-researcher collaboration. And, of course, we especially look forward to catching up in hallway conversations!

Cheers,
