Presentation Title: Internet Explorer 8 - Trustworthy Engineering and Browsing
Presentation Abstract:

This paper will present a technical overview of the security engineering process behind Internet Explorer 8.0. As the threat landscape has evolved from simple social engineering attacks and deception and moved beyond browser vulnerabilities, a whole range of emerging exploits compromising the promise of Web 2.0 and legitimate web servers. Come see how we’ve listened to feedback from the security community and consumers and how we’ve changed how we engineer our products as a result. The talk provides an overview of the security engineering in IE8, how its different from the past and provides a sneak peek into some of the most important features going into IE8.
