Contributed by Tom Smyth on from the ROP no more dept.
This contribution comes directly from Tom Smyth:
Todd Mortimer (mortimier@) gives an excellent presentation on ROP Gadgets, and some of the mitigation strategies he has recently contributed to OpenBSD.
This talk colourfully illustrates how ROP gadgets manifest and how they managed to drastically reduce the number of gadgets available to an attackers in OpenBSD. His paper is up already and a link to the video is available on OpenBSD Events page, but I attended this talk and I found Todd's delivery excellent and he really makes understanding ROP more accessible.
Thanks Todd for sharing.
Thank you Tom for sharing this video with the OpenBSD community.
