There are several security and privacy concerns that arise in a distributed computing environment where thousands of engineers develop and deploy binaries. These concerns can broadly be classified in terms of whether they are defense mechanisms against a dedicated attacker, general protection mechanisms for either the engineer or the computing environment, or techniques for detection and response to either security or privacy incidents. In this talk I will provide an overview of a few efforts of each of these types, with special emphasis on tools and techniques that may not have adopted recent research ideas. Audience willing, I will also speculate on analogies between the landscape of secure compilation and data privacy issues that receive significant attention in the industry.
