"Inveniam viam aut faciam" : I will either find a way, or I shall make one


TROUBLE WITH ASSUMPTION

The ISG Whitehat usergroup in SA did me the honor of asking me to do a talk, and I did one title 'The trouble with assumptions'. The basic premise is that our understanding of risk is dependent on how probable we think any specific occurence is. If we think it is remote, then the risk is lowered, if it is highly possible then the risk is increased. I wanted to apply this principle to how much trust we place in the source IP of network transactions.

I enjoyed the talk, there were great questions, thanks guys!
