Apple iOS Black Hat talk had bark, but no bite
Apple's much-ballyhooed first-ever talk at the Black Hat conference lacked any of the fireworks that the standing-room only crowd had been hoping for.
Dallas De Atley, manager of the platform security team at Apple, presented "iOS Security", the simply (but blandly by Black Hat standards) titled talk on Thursday morning. But it only took a few seconds to realize that that was Apple's plan. The company is uncomfortable publicly speaking about its security posture, so a talk like this was going to be all business from start to finish.
Engaging, competent and cogent, De Atley said the right things to win over an often-cynical security-conscious crowd of hackers and developers. "Our attitude is that security is architecture -- you have to build it from the very beginning," he said to open the talk.
