Topic: Understanding the Chromium Sandbox on Windows
Matt’s talk will look at the Chromium sandbox, an important piece of technology that is being used by the world’s most popular web browsers to help protect systems from full system compromise. The area of browser sandboxing is relevant to everyone, and will very likely to continue for some time.
It will provide an overview of what the Chromium sandbox is, how it works on Windows, how it's gone so far, and where this space may be going. The talk will include:
- An introduction to the history, architecture, and design of the Chromium sandbox
- A walk-through and demos to understand the evolution of browser sandboxing on Windows - the types of offensive research and exploits that we've seen, how countermeasures have been developed, and how Windows 10 has been evolving till now to support the Chromium sandbox
- A look at the future for browser sandboxing on Windows.
