Recent attacks on browsers and certificate authorities for SSL have shown how fragile these systems are, yet we all depend on them while using the Internet on a daily basis. This talk will explore the implementation flaws in the SSL protocol and the browsers that support it.

The session will then explore the mitigation options for the problems we are experiencing today and provide a framework in which we can solve future SSL security issues.
