Talk Abstract
Forging an Ineffective Immune Response: Lessons from Two Decades Of Computer Security

Bob Blakley

Computer system security has been built on principles very different from those which underpin animal immune systems. These principles have not produced systems which are good at defending themselves against even known attacks; this talk will examine how the organizational principles of secure computer systems differ from those of natural immune systems and will try to draw some conclusions about the relative merits of the two systems.
