As somebody who's not already a crypto expert, I found those slides next to worthless by themselves. I suspect that the speaker put a lot of extra explanation into them during the talk to explain why TLA1 is better than TLA2, but it doesn't come across at all in the text.

As an example, I'd read an article about timing attacks, so I knew what the author was getting at in the slide about rewriting that loop. If I saw the slide without any background, I'd have been left scratching my head since it doesn't make any attempt to explain the actual issue.

Let us know when the audio is available. I'll keep the slides around until then.

Yep. There's a practical limit to how much text you can put into slides and have them still be useful; I decided that it was more useful to have the recommendations in the slides and the reasoning orally than vice versa.


Is the audio of the talk available online? A cursory googling of bsdcan sources didn't yield anything.


The audio was recorded, but I don't think it's available yet.
