Seven Grades of Perfect Forward Secrecy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) becomes popular and its adoption rate is growing. An importance of implementing it becomes even more obvious after recent attacks on SSL such as Heartbleed. 

In Hartbleed case an impact could have been leveled down if PFS had been implemented by affected parties, since compromising private SSL key would not necessary lead to a possibility of decrypting SSL traffic. 

To understand an adoption rate of PFS by different sectors of economy, the first question that we would need to answer is: "What does PFS adoption mean?" It turned out that it's not a "Yes" or "No" question and should be formulated in terms of maturity rather than in the simple "implemented"/"not implemented" terms. 

Come to this presentation to learn more about the suggested grades, the levels of PFS adoption in different sectors of the economy and how to test the level of PFS maturity in your own organization.
