Apple's much anticipated presentation at the Black Hat security conference disappointed attendees who were hoping for some interesting insights on iOS security.

When Dallas De Atley, manager of Apple's platform security team, took the stage, the room inside the Caesar's Palace hotel complex was packed tight and thick with anticipation. But when hackers and security suits filed out an hour later, most looked bored and deflated. Mr. De Atley had basically done the equivalent of reading aloud a white paper, timed to a PowerPoint deck, before escaping out a side door without answering any questions. Steve Jobs he is not.

While Mr. De Atley delivered his presentation on iOS security, hackers elsewhere were delivering a simultaneous presentation titled "The Dark Art of iOS Application Hacking."


The presentation was still notable as it was the first time Apple had taken to the stage at Black Hat or DefCon.
