11:20: Responsibile disclosures of Vulnerabilities

  • Dean Pemberton, Network Startup Resource Center
  • Every day security researchers find vulnerabilities in the computer systems of organisations. Every day these vulnerabilities go unreported because the researchers can't be sure the organisation won't call the police. Every day some organisations are effectively held to ransom by hackers threatening to go public with vulnerabilities unless the organisation can manage to fix them. These are some examples of situations which can be avoided through the use of "Responsible Disclosure Guidelines". The New Zealand Internet Taskforce is in the process of developing such a set of guidelines. These guidelines will not only help organisations be better prepared for the reporting of security vulnerabilities, they will also allow researchers to feel more comfortable that they will not end up explaining their legitimate actions to the police.
