Traditionally, securing update systems simply meant digitally signing the packages or installs at build time, and then verifying their integrity before installation. This time is gone. Modern attacks involve roll-back to older, vulnerable versions, or denial of service attacks that block the installation of newer fixes and updates. We also have to anticipate key compromise and other supply chain attacks.

A modern update system will detect when it’s being attacked, given old data, and can handle the compromise or loss of signing keys. This talk will discuss the various attacks and present tools available for mitigating those attacks.
