The Black Hat conference session description reads:

Apple designed the iOS platform with security at its core. In this talk, Dallas De Atley, manager of the Platform Security team at Apple, will discuss key security technologies in iOS.

Developers and security experts will likely be happy to get a chance to learn more about Apple’s security measures, and potentially future plans, for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, as well as iOS 6.

Apple’s presence at the event marks a big change for the company that has historically been tight-lipped, and hasn’t been involved in conferences for a few years.

The Black Hat Conference is an annual event where tech professionals can learn more about security, privacy, and hacking prevention. The event runs from July 21 through July 26 at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.

This new spirit of involvement and communication, if not cooperation, is really nice to see. Thanks Apple.

Yet another signal that this is no longer strictly Steve’s Apple.
