"Behind the scenes: Security Research" - Rodrigo Rubira Branco (BSDaemon)

It is well known that Security Research became a trend worldwide. Terms like cyberwar and 0day are now part of the normal media jargon. Security companies are releasing advisories. Computer hardware companies are buying security companies. Software companies are hiring hackers. How does that work behind the scenes? How good (or bad) the vulnerabilities are been coordinated? Why a security vulnerability has a value? Who is buying? How security research is been done nowadays? Why the real hackers are disappearing? This talk will give some answers and will create even more questions. It is the opinion of someone who created security research teams around the globe, coordinated security issues with different companies and developed security solutions too.
