We are pleased to announce that the two keynotes for the seL4 summit 2023 will be Gage from NCSC and Sam Leffler from Google! Gage will talk about Scoping assurance activities with seL4 and Sam about CantripOS: An OS for Ambient ML Applications.
Gage is an Assurance Lead in NCSC with expertise in cryptography, software assurance and verification. He is part of a larger team that seeks to provide assurance and articulate risk for a wide range of products and customers. Whilst he is not a product developer himself, he has been responsible for presenting assurance cases for products that rely on seL4 to uphold security requirements.
