*Bio & Talk Description*
- * Paul McMillan* - Attacking the Internet of Things using Time
- Internet of Things devices are often slow and resource constrained.
This makes them the perfect target for network-based timing
allow an attacker to brute-force credentials one character at a time,
rather than guessing the entire string at once. We will discuss
attacks work, how to optimize them, and how to handle the many factors
which can prevent successful exploitation. We will also
on at least one popular device. After this presentation, you
will have the
foundation necessary to attack your own devices, and a set of scripts to
help you get started.
- Paul McMillan is a security engineer at Nebula. He also works on
the security teams for several open source projects. When he's
or breaking the internet, he enjoys, cocktails and photography.
- * Ben Hagen* - Cloud Security at Scale and What it Means for Your
- Cloud computing is all the rage, but few organizations have really
thought about what security means for their applications and networks in
cloud-centric deployments. Netflix is amongst the largest users of public
cloud resources and consumes roughly 1/3 of all the US’s downstream
broadband at peak. This talk will cover the processes used at Netflix to
deploy and secure large-scale applications to the Cloud. Netflix has
developed a suite of architectures, processes, and tools to make security
in the Cloud as elegant as possible... most of these are, or
will soon be,
Open Sourced. Several tools will be previewed in the talk.
These systems include:
- Hundreds of applications; with hundreds of production
deployments a day ... all using an “immutable server model”
- Crazy monkeys that roam the clouds to enforce availability
models through random instance homicide
- OCD fish that swim cloudy waters to make sure firewalls are sane
and consistent across the globe
- Inquisitive penguins automatically assess the risk of an
application based upon its codebase and interconnections with other
- ... and many more ...
- Ben Hagen is likely the only security professional in the world who
has won both a presidential election and an Emmy. He loves security and
both building and breaking things. Ben currently leads the Security Tools
and Operations team at Netflix. During the 2012 US Presidential
was in charge of security for the Obama 2012 re-election campaign’s
technology program. Prior to this role, he was a Security Consultant with
Neohapsis, and Motorola where he had to break into, and then
help fix, the
computer networks of lots of organizations.
