DefCon 19 ReCap - Security When Nanoseconds Count

Posted by Steven Fox
High-speed trading - it's a reality often lost in the discussions of current financial challenges.  Much of the trading activity that drives the global economy occurs at speeds that exceed human capability.  Yes - computers conduct trades at nanosecond speeds based on mathematical algorithms.  These algorithms take into account information from global markets, futures trading, financial indicators, among other factors to make trading decisions.  Speed is money for these systems. Any devices that increases network latency - such as a firewall - means lost profits.
