Hard-Coded Keys

and How To Find Them

Join us for a 30-minute webcast with Dr Graham Steel to discuss the hard-coded key problem:

  • How serious is this problem?
  • What can we do to detect and eliminate hard-coded keys?

Fixing the value of a key or password in source code or configuration files is one of the most pervasive and easy-to-exploit errors in cryptography.

Of 916 cryptography-related CVEs in 2018, 124 were hardcoded credential issues, that's more than 13%. Hardcoded credentials have been implicated in many high-profile recent breaches, for example at Uber and Solarwinds.

Despite years of tool development, hardcoded credentials are still badly identified by most application analysis tools, with false positives and negatives a constant problem.

In this webinar, we will take a fresh look at the hardcoded key problem, working through some real case studies, and identifying strategies that are effective in eliminating them at scale.

The live presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
