Event ID: 1032511630
Language(s): English.
Product(s): Microsoft Visual Studio.
Audience(s): Pro Dev/Programmer.

This webcast discusses the security improvements for native code development in Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 RC as they relate to the Microsoft Security Development Lifecycle (SDL). These improvements include easier access to security-relevant warnings, along with improved and new security code generation features, such as updates to /GS buffer overflow protection and new protection against uninitialized data usage.

Presenters: Tim Burrell, and Thomas Garnier, Security Software Development Engineers, Microsoft Corporation

Tim Burrell joined the Microsoft Security Engineering Center within the Trustworthy Computing group in 2006. Tim is part of the security science team, whose aims include developing scalable and innovative ways of improving software security. Tim's main areas of interest are:

  • Finding and fixing security bugs by working with product groups within Microsoft to develop and deploy static analysis tooling.
  • Working with Microsoft Visual Studio to build security features into the tool chain itself, for example, compiler security mitigation features that increase the complexity of exploiting a given security defect.

Thomas Garnier joined the Microsoft Security Engineering Center within the Trustworthy Computing group in 2009. Thomas is part of the security science team, whose aims include developing scalable and innovative ways of improving software security. Thomas's main areas of interest are:

  • Discovering and fixing new attack vectors before being publicly found.
  • Working to create new security mitigations within Windows by changing core components or within Microsoft Visual Studio by building security features in the compiler.
