I wanted to talk a little bit about securing C code, this came up a few weeks ago in a friendly twitter discussion and I said I would write something; so here it is.

Securing C is not an easy thing to do generally but we had pretty good success in Project Lightspeed. Now please don’t consider this a pwnme challenge: it’s not that. Nobody needs that in their life (see this if that excites you). But I think we ended up in a pretty good place and it is C, so I thought it would be worth it to…
