Session: UAC And Standard User In Windows 7

Ultimate goal: everyone running as a standard user
Why
-security: vunlerable app != vulnerable machine.

uac is a transitional technology

Users in UAC
-the administrator EG "Administrator"
-your name "jason"
Windows 7 has UAC

summary: application development should have targeted "user mode" as deploy environment, only elevated to privilege mode when needed use the proper way to gain/access privilege mode(mentioned in the slides).

Mostly PowerPoint slides. they should be available soon.

Notes about the Speaker: crispin cowan the author of AppArmor(so he was a  linux guru)
