According to a statement released by Black Hat organizers last week, JJeff Moss, Bruce Schneier, Marcus Ranum, Adam Shostack and Jennifer Granick—each of whom spoke at the first Black Hat conference—will appear together on a panel titled "Smashing the Future for Fun and Profit" on Wednesday. The five will share their vision of security for the next 15 years in the first Black Hat "futurist panel," according to the statement.
"Bringing back these renowned experts is our way to celebrate the security community's past, present and future," said Black Hat General Manager Trey Ford.
The futurist panel is scheduled for 10:15 a.m. local time at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas. More information on the panel can be found on the Black Hat website.
The Black Hat conference is produced by UBM TechWeb, owned by UBM plc, the same company that owns and publishes EE Times.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
