Microsoft's presentations on Windows Vista are not the typical Black Hat talks, but attendees are welcoming the look behind the scenes at the software giant.

The annual Black Hat Briefings security confab here traditionally focuses on hunting for bugs and attacking computers. But this year, for the first time in the event's 10-year history, several sessions are focused on the security--rather than the insecurity--of a single vendor's product. Microsoft, a platinum sponsor, is giving presentations on Vista.

I'm not a big fan of MS, but this is a move in the right direction.

Opening up Vista to analyses before release can only help out the security of the end product. With luck, many of the major and the most obvious holes in the security of the new system will be known and dealt with before the release.

I agree with Grelmar, this could only be a step in the right direction.
