*Topic:*Why UPnP is Awesome and Terrifying

Abstract: UPnP daemons can be found on a wide range of devices these
days, from network devices to desktop OSes to network-attached
electrical outlets and more. While UPnP is mostly known for its use in
automated port forwarding, it serves as a general interface to allow
interaction with a host in a variety of ways determined by the host
providing the UPnP interface. This talk will explain how UPnP discovery
and interaction occurs, and demonstrate issues with various devices
running UPnP daemons.

*Speaker:* Dan Crowley, Trustwave Spiderlabs
