LAS VEGAS. When it comes to security flaws, security pros are not in charge.
That’s the message that security researcher Dan Kamsinky, delivered in a press conference at Black Hat today.
“People think that security people gets to tell people what to do, but the reality is that developers developers are in charge.”
Kaminsky added that it’s not like developers hate security and it’s not like they want to leak information, but they also don’t want to write code in ornate mechanisms of security..
“So if there is one mindset that i want to change, it is to try to bridge the gap for mutual respect from developers and security people.”
