Krassimir Tzvetanov, Fastly

Over the past 7 years I worked on abuse/DDoS mitigation Yahoo! and Cisco. At Cisco I also provided consulting for a number of customers on security issues (including DDoS and threat intelligence related to it). Currently at A10 I focus on threat intelligence and product development for security products, as well as serve as high tier escalation point for high profile customers. I have presented at a number of conference on security and DDoS topics. I have ran or co-ran 3 Security Tracks at NANOG so far and I would like to see it have more security content, which I can both arrange for and deliver. I have desire to build a full day security focused track and I can recruit the presenters and deliver the content. More details about my work history can be found on my LinkedIn profile.

Abstract: Subject: Embedded devices (aka IoT) as a community problem

Abstract: This track will focus on the volatility on the Internet caused by embedded devices of all shapes and forms.
While the danger was discussed a number of times in the past under different forums, it appears we have not done sufficient work in this space, as recently illustrated by the Mirai botnet.

The panel aims to discuss the following topics:
1. Ongoing issues with embedded devices - CPE, IoT, etc.
- Lack of adequate best practices
- Poor vendor response
2. In the context of Mirai:
- Numbers of devices which can be infected?
- Number of parallel botnets?
- Size of those botnets?
- How many forks exist of the source code?
3. What are the security vendors doing to improve this situation? Do we see discrepancies in the responses between different vendors?
4. What are the service providers doing?
5. What should be the government/regulators involvement?
