Zero Trust has evolved from hype to security concept, and is evolving into a security standard. Zero Trust has gone from being network-centric to applying to people, applications, and data. And yet? The value of any defensive security control can only be determined within the context of the offensive tactics. The value gets further obscured when unexpected vulnerabilities rip holes in our defenses. In this presentation, threat models and attack scenarios will highlight the strengths and weakness of Zero Trust. This session provides an adversarial view of limiting trust in our environments.
