Topic: Vulnerability Research – Where are you Vulnerable?
Abstract: Vulnerability research is an area of cyber security research primarily dedicated to discovering vulnerabilities in binary code. These vulnerabilities in software, firmware, operating systems, etc. usually lead to some sort of an exploit of the target. The VR process includes analyzing binary code using a number of tools and techniques to aid the researcher with the task. It is normally a long process requiring diligence on the part of the researcher.
As followers of Christ, we also have vulnerabilities in our own lives. These vulnerabilities affect our walk with Christ and our testimony. God has provided us a number of tools to discover and “patch” our vulnerabilities during our sanctification. Just like vulnerability research, our personal vulnerability research is a long process requiring diligence in our Christian lives.
