Backslash powered scanning: implementing human intuition

Want to visit   +139

Author: James Kettle

Existing web scanners search for server-side injection vulnerabilities by throwing a canned list of technology-specific payloads at a target and looking for signatures—almost like an anti-virus. The speaker will share with you key insights from the conception and development of an open-source scanner evolved from classic manual techniques that's capable of finding and confirming both known and unknown classes of injection vulnerabilities.

Do WAFs dream of static analyzers?

Want to visit   +114

Author: Vladimir Kochetkov

Traditional WAFs regard the applications they protect as a black box: incoming HTTP requests and outgoing HTTP requests are the only means available for attack detection. Obviously, this information is not enough for formal proof, and WAF settles for heuristic approach. Even if we intercept all requests by an application to its environment (filesystem, sockets, BD), it only improves the quality of heuritsics, though it is in no way useful for switching to formal methods. But what if we build a WAF that would treat an application as a white box? What if it could handle the application model obtained as a result of the static code analysis? What if it would be possible to decide if an HTTP request is an attack as we run application code fragments?

Live hacking: how digital attackers are intruding into your systems

Author: Sebastian Schreiber

IT security incidents in the recent past demonstrate emphatically that the IT systems even in international high-tech companies and major state institutions don't have sufficient protection. Widespread IT quality assurance measures may suffice to safeguard 99% of systems. However, the decisive factor is that the remaining one percent provides a target for digital attacks. Every gap, however tiny, is sufficient to render an otherwise well-secured IT infrastructure vulnerable in its entirety. During a live hacking presentation, the speaker will perform different attacks on IT systems. He will show that it is astonishingly easy to bypass protective measures in order to access sensitive information.

Linux kernel HTTPS/TCP/IP stack for HTTP DDoS mitigation

Want to visit   +54

Author: Alexander Krizhanovsky

The talk describes an extension of the Linux TCP/IP stack, so that HTTPS works in the same stack with TCP and IP. Application-layer HTTP DDoS attacks are usually mitigated by HTTP accelerators or HTTP load balancers. However, Linux socket interface used by the software doesn't provide reasonable performance for extreme loads caused by DDoS attacks. HTTP servers based on user space TCP/IP stacks are becoming popular due to their better performance, but TCP/IP stacks are huge and complex code, so it's not wise to implement and run it twice in user and kernel spaces. Kernel TCP/IP stack is well integrated with many powerful tools like IPTables, IPVS, tc, tcpdump that are unavailable for a user space TCP/IP stack or require complex interfaces. The speaker will present Tempesta FW, which introduces HTTPS processing to the kernel. HTTPS is built into the Linux TCP/IP stack. As an HTTP firewall, Tempesta FW implements a set of rate limits and heuristics to defend against HTTPS floods and Slow HTTP attacks.
