LAS VEGAS -- A panel discussion with Apple employees talking about the 
company's security practices was canceled by its moderator.

Black Hat founder and director Jeff Moss told ComputerWorld that "it was 
them talking about security engineering and how they take security 
seriously. It would have put Apple in a positive light."

Last week, another session on Apple FileVault was pulled at the request 
of its presenter, Charles Edge. He reportedly signed an agreement with 
Apple preventing him from talking about the vulnerablities he'd found.
