              Application Security for Open Source Software

   Open Source has been a blessing to the development community. However
   undocumented open source now permeates production code.  While IP issues
   are the most obvious concerns, security has become THE big concern.  You
   can't patch what you do not know you have.

   Firms are finding out that they have 5x the amount of open source they
   thought and hundreds of undocumented modules.  Palamida technology
   identifies these, matches them to the vulnerability data base and supplies
   a tool suite for maintenance and good housekeeping going forward.

   Mark Tolliver's talk, while providing a glimpse of the product, will
   include case studies and examples of open source caused disruptions.  From
   popular ones which did minimal damage like the iPhone hack to an example of
   one that casued a very well known security breach at a household name
   financial institution.

   Mark will also share examples of how major firms use Palamida ( such as
   Microsoft in their M&A team) to major enterprises. 

 About Mark Tolliver:
   Mark Tolliver brings more than 30 years of experience in the high-tech

   strategy, and chief strategy officer for Sun Microsystems.  In that role
   he was responsible for corporate marketing, product and business strategy,
   mergers and acquisitions, industry marketing and independent software
   vendor (ISV) programs
   Tolliver was with Sun for ten years, previously serving as president and
   general manager of iPlanet. Established in November 1998, iPlanet was a
