BSides is a community-driven framework for building events for and by information security community members. The goal is to expand the spectrum of conversation beyond the traditional confines of space and time. It creates opportunities for individuals to both present and participate in an intimate atmosphere that encourages collaboration. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from participants. It is where conversations for the next-big-thing are happening.
BSides Charleston was started in 2012 and has been held at the College of Charleston annually. Since its existence BSides Charleston has been attracting security professionals from all over the Lowcountry area for this one day event.Google+
Every day websites with simple vulnerabilities in Content Management Systems such as Wordpress are compromised and used to host phishing and malware attacks.
SalesForce, Google Apps, Cisco, Intuit, and many more use Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML 2.0) to exchange authentication and authorization information between security domains. Learn how to integrate SAML 2.0 services into your application and leverage existing authorization and authentication services so that you can sign in once and navigate smoothly across other trusted domains. This presentation is hands-on and will include real world examples.
In this presentation we go beyond the common printer issues and focus on harvesting data from multifunction printer (MFP) that can be leveraged to gain access to other core network systems. By taking advantage of poor printer security and vulnerabilities during penetration testing we are able to harvest a wealth of information from MFP devices including usernames, email addresses, and authentication information including SMB, Email, LDAP passwords. Leveraging this information we have successful gained administrative access into core systems including email servers, file servers and Active directory domains on multiple occasions. We will also explore MFP device vulnerabilities including authentication bypass, information leakage flaws and attacking firmware upgrade patching process to gain root level access to devices. Tying this altogether we will discuss the development of an automated process for harvesting the information from MFP devices with an updated release of our tool PRAEDA.
The presentation will begin by introducing SCADA systems under the hood including RTU, IED, PLC, FEP, PCS, DCS, HMI, sensors, data historians and other SCADA components. The presenter will categories these components into distinct groups based on the functionality that each component provides. The presenter will review the security implications on each of these groups and identify where most of the threats lie. The presentation will take a packet level dive into SCADA protocols like MODBUS and DNP3 and study their security implications. The presentation will give example of attacks that can be carried out against each group and component. The presenter will release an updated version of an open-source tool to identify and inventory SCADA systems using the protocols discussed in this presentation. The presenter will then focus on real world examples of successful and not-so-successful implementations of security controls with SCADA systems. This will include examples of what some large organizations have done, and a discussion about why SCADA security cannot be deciphered just by tools or technical solution. The presentation will conclude with guidance on how control system owners can start implementing additional measures to get to an acceptable security.
The talk will cover programming errors and exceptions and also discuss how improper error messages can leak sensitive information. During the talk, I will teach the audience how to recognize, handle, and defeat programming errors, exceptions, and erroneous behavior.
Mapping the Penetration Tester’s Mind is a bridge gap series made to bring information technology professionals, auditors, managers, penetration testers and all those with an interest in information security to an equal understanding. Many times an auditor, manager, or compliance officer understands that a Penetration Test is required and the importance of having it done, but may not understand how it is performed or why certain actions were made. Mapping the Penetration Tester’s Mind will allow these professionals to gain insight in to how a Pen Tester looks at the project from start to finish, including viewing the SOW, applying methodologies and experience, target selection, exploitation, evidence collection, and reporting. Mapping the Penetration Tester’s Mind will not only present the ideals that are used to perform a test, but will also arm the attendees with the information and knowledge to ensure that they are choosing the right Pen Tester for their engagement. This material has never been presented with this type of focus or insight from an experienced tester like this before. Mapping the Penetration Tester’s Mind is sure to provide every attendee a high value of return and a better understanding of the “dark art” of penetration testing making it the bright light at the end of the tunnel.
As virtualization is now the norm, physical separation is something of the past. Individual security domains that previously required strict hardware separation, now exist concurrently on one machine. This leaves these system vulnerable to potential data leakage between virtual machines via covert channels. This talk will give a brief introduction on covert channels, and then discuss the design and implementation of a framework to test data leakage via timing and storage covert channels. Special attention will be paid to the methods of synchronization, decoding, and other practical concerns of these covert channels. I'll detail how to use regression and cluster analysis to decode the information obtained from timing covert channels into the originally transmitted bits. Finally I'll conclude with a discussion of five separate covert channels in VirtualBox, VMware Player, and QEMU/KVM, detail the best synchronization and decoding methods for each.
We cannot hack or firewall our way secure. Application programmers need to learn to code in a secure fashion if we have any chance of providing organizations with proper defenses in the current threatscape. This talk will discuss the 10 most important security-centric computer programming techniques necessary to build low-risk web-based applications.
This session will discuss deep technical aspects of encryption in cloud environments as well as the legal, audit and compliance implications of data ownership and policy requirements for medium and high business impact (MBI and HBI) data in distributed computing topologies.
Employ a few info gathering techniques and common psychological principles to get the job done. The majority of successful security breaches begin with social engineering attacks against people, bringing the external threat to the inside. The current hybrid of technical controls and training in the tech industry has barely scratched the surface of defense, yet social engineering attacks are older than the tech industry itself. We will briefly cover the basics in this session and discuss options that may lower successful attack rates. Void where prohibited; no 0day required.
