Hello folks!

Long time no updating my blog.
The work, book, and a minimum of social life are killing my free time 🙂

So, here we go…
… on last 17th June 2018 I gave a talk at the BSides Conference in my own city, Milano.
It was really nice to return back home, see my family and friends, even if for a small amount of time.

The talk was about Intel TXT, aka Trusted Execution Technology, that Intel has implemented in his own CPUs.
Windows uses Intel TXT for 3 reasons:

  • Providing the auto-unlocking of the encrypted Bitlocker boot drive
  • Measured Boot
  • Windows Defender System Guard (aka the Trusted Boot implementation in Windows)

The entire presentation is available here:

The presentation is for a technical audience, so I was expecting some basic knowledge about OSs. After the conference, I have received some advises (of course well accepted) saying that I’ve put too many details in the slides. I would love to hear from the readers what they think about…
In the meantime I am restarting with a new Book’s Chapter, and preparing an interesting presentation for the new BlueHat edition.

So, as usually, stay tuned! 🙂
