IPv6 network reconnaissance

Want to visit   +97

Author: Fernando Gont

The Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) and the emerging IPv6 deployments somehow change the rules of the "network reconnaissance" game: with the typical 264 addresses per subnetwork, the traditional brute-force approach to address scanning from the IPv4 world becomes unfeasible. This workshop will cover the latest IPv6 network reconnaissance techniques discussed in RFC7707. It will provide an intense IPv6 hacking experience, focusing on hands-on IPv6 network reconnaissance exercises.

Practical machine learning in infosecurity

Want to visit   +77

Authors: Anto Joseph and Clarence Chio

Machine learning (ML) is the future. The speaker will give an introduction to the topic with the Boolean classification problem and introduce classifiers, which are at the core of many of the most common ML systems. He will also provide a simple example of deploying security machine learning systems in production pipelines using Apache Spark. The speaker will talk about how such systems can be poisoned, misguided, and utterly broken if the architects and implementers are not careful.

DIY tablet PC for hacking

Want to visit   +67

Author: Andrey Biryukov

Mobile devices penetrated our everyday life. Smartphones and tablet PCs allow performing numerous tasks in various areas, including information security. Although there is a vast range of mobile OS software, the programs required for penetration testing are unavailable. As a solution, the speaker suggests creating a DIY tablet PC based on Raspberry Pi 3 and running Linux. In contrast to other Raspberry-based solutions, this device does not require any peripherals—either a keyboard or a mouse. Interaction with the user is only via touch screen, therefore the device size can be reduced down to smartphone dimensions. The tablet PC is running Aircrack-ng, Kismet, Nmap, Wireshark, Metasploit (!), and custom Python scripts. The speaker will demonstrate how the device works and give tips on how to assemble and configure it.

Application Security Outback

Want to visit   +29

Authors: Vladimir Kochetkov, Denis Kolegov

Have you ever wondered how modern application protection mechanisms are arranged? What theory is the basis of WAF and SAST implementation? What are their limitations? How far can we push them aside if we would have a broader look at the application security issue? This hands-on lab will show basic methods and algorithms of the two fundamental application security technologies: web application firewall and static code analysis. Using open source tools developed specifically for this hands-on lab, the participants will review the problems that app protection developers come across and possible solutions to these problems.
