Building a Secure, Trustworthy and Freedom-Respecting Linux Platform - Matthew Garrett, Nebula

Linux is everywhere, from our pockets to our supercomputers. And as our lives become more entwined with the devices we interact with every day, Linux becomes more attractive as a target for people who want to learn more about us. If we're lucky, they just want our email credentials or credit card details. If we're unlucky, they want the contents of our phone calls and our precise locations. Security is important.

Unfortunately, so far security has often been proposed at the expense of freedom - and vice-versa. People buy locked-down devices because they trust them more. People install replacement operating systems by disabling security features. But this isn't fundamental. We can have both security and freedom. This presentation will discuss how and why it's important.
