Session Title: AUTOMATED DEVICE SETUP & Mac platform “ecosystem security”

Overview: This talk asks a simple question that’s difficult to answer: what are all the things that need to be true, in order for a company to have full confidence that a Mac is “secure” by the time it’s fully configured and ready for use by an employee on day 1? Answering this question requires covering some vast security engineering terrain, including Certificate Authorities, T2, Secure Boot, device attestation, TLS, and OS platform security features such as Notarization. This talk will ask more questions than it answers, and is meant to be a jumping-off point for discussion and further research (both myself and others).
