This year, the free event about software & security will be virtual! The good news is that the event is free to attend!

All the conferences will be in webinar format and in English language this year, a great opportunity to attend this edition of Pass the Salt while staying safely at home!

Also, Olivier, our CEO will be one of the speaker for this event. Olivier's talk will be about: Tackling security issues in virtualization.

Because virtualization is everywhere, new challenges in the IT world are revealing that this crucial component has to be improved on a regular basis. This requires a lot of coordination between Open Source projects as well as intense research and development efforts.

Intel CPU flaws changing the security landscape regarding isolation, increasing complexity of stacks requiring more and more components working together, hardware specialization, new protocols, new use cases on top (k8s): these are a few of the challenges that a virtualization platform must answer in 2020, particularly when it comes to security and performance.

We'll first see a landscape of these new challenges, then the possible approaches to solve them, and finally a concrete example of what the XCP-ng project is doing to integrate all these changes in a fully Open Source fashion, inside a turnkey Xen distro.

The talk will be given on Wednesday 1st of July, 2020 at 3:20 PM CET and will be available in live stream on this website:
