International keynote William Cheswick - Computer Security: I think we can win!

By a number of important measures, the Internet is working spectacularly well. A large part of the world's economy uses it to great advantage. But there is crime and espionage as well, and the attackers are highly capable and motivated. Meanwhile, experienced security people despair. The same bugs seem to persist, the lessons of the past ignored or forgotten. This has been going on for decades.

But I am an optimist. Despite the steady drumbeat of repeated problems, we are still very early in the game, making widespread rookie mistakes. Despite the incredible progress of Moore's Law, our software isn't much better than thirty years ago.

This is going to get better over the coming decades. We have tools and techniques we haven't explored or deployed very far. We can get the upper hand - yes, it is possible to write a secure program. They are our computers, on our networks, running software we choose: we have the home-field advantage. We ought to be able to win.
