Keynote by AlienVault
While we sometimes think of new and emerging technology as the ‘future’ of information security, we tend to neglect many of the other components like education, communication, information sharing, and community engagement.  It's up to us in the infosec community to not only provide the spark and medium to fuel technical progress but also to fan the flames of advocacy and vigilance in spreading the good word of security.

In this talk, I’ll discuss the importance of security advocacy, educating your organization on the value of a robust security posture, and raising awareness on how critical it is to share information about breaches and attacks.

Wazuh – Open Source Security for Host and Infrastructure Monitoring

Host-based security monitoring has become increasingly important as the number and severity of threats keeps growing. In addition, network security monitoring tools are now harder to deploy, and not as efficient as they used to be.

Another driver for the adoption of host-based monitoring tools is the increased need to comply with security regulations (e.g. PCI DSS).

Wazuh started as a fork of the OSSEC project, and has quickly evolved into a more comprehensive solution. It now integrates OpenSCAP and Elastic Stack providing additional security monitoring and analysis capabilities.

In this session we will show you how to deploy and use Wazuh to:

  • Detect intrusion attempts using rules to automatically analyze log data
  • Monitor files integrity, detecting changes in system binaries or configuration files
  • Index and store log data with Elasticsearch to meet PCI DSS compliance requirements
  • Identify malware (e.g. kernel level rootkits) and system anomalies
  • Monitor systems configuration to ensure they meet standards and hardening guides

Defending Cyberspace with "Inside-the-Box" Thinking
Innovation is a buzzword within the US military and is shaping the vision for our forces as being agile organizations able to adapt to a complex world. But does our military have the capabilities to protect vital national interests in cyber? The growth of the Internet in our globally connected world has meant that tools for cyber are constantly changing. Accordingly, do we have the capacity to gain the advantages needed to out-hack our adversaries in this domain? In this talk, we provide a simple framework for different types of innovation to promote inside-the-box thinking for finding better solutions to defend against cyberattacks.

Wait, my wireless is doing WHAT?!
A host of sources, threaten our networks. Most common is the use of wireless networks within our enterprises. Sure, it’s convenient, however, many organizations create vulnerabilities because of their wireless networks, sometimes exposing sensitive information that is valuable to criminals. A lot of this started with "War–Driving”, but there are more and more vehicles/methods that attackers are using today that it’s hard to keep up with them. So, let’s just call it “War-XXXing”. Obviously, this begs a couple of questions. What is War–XXXing? Where can it lead? How can I protect my infrastructure?

Vulnerability Hunting on Network Devices
Vulnerability hunting on network devices has long been an arcane, occult art-form owing to squamous hardware, strange software, and operating systems that seem to defy both logic and good software development practices. The challenges are great, but the allure of binding such strategically placed devices to your will is strong.  This talk will walk you through building an effective toolset to explore and exploit these network devices, by getting into their very essence, debugging them and using the latest in freely available tools and some very low cost hardware.

Developing a Threat Modeling Mindset
Nearly every day we hear about another compromise of a system that involves a breakdown of security. In many cases, the reason for compromise can be traced back to vulnerabilities that were not found or understood and not mitigated. The attacker(s) used those vulnerabilities to carry out threats against the system.

Threat modeling is a way of thinking about what can go wrong and how to prevent it. Instinctively, we all think this way in regard to our own personal security and safety. When it comes to building or evaluating information systems, we need to develop a similar mindset. In this session, Robert provides practical strategies to develop a threat modeling mindset by: understanding a system, identifying threats, identifying vulnerabilities, determining mitigations and applying the mitigations through risk management.

Between You and Me and the Network Security Boundary
Many organizations have IT environments with zones of varying security requirements. These zones are usually networks that are created to encompass systems that serve different functions, from production web applications to PCI in-scope database servers.

An organization has to make a decision about implementing a security boundary that protects high-security areas from low-security areas. Designing and deploying these solutions can be a complex task, contending with hurdles from compliance requirements and management all the way to just making sure the users can remember how to access all the necessary systems. This complexity leaves many holes that can be exploited by bad guys to get access to the most sensitive data. Most penetration testers will tell you that getting past these barriers, even ones that implement fancy security features such as multi-factor authentication, become bypassable through race conditions and configuration flaws.

This talk will review several common solutions of separating and accessing network zones such as VPNs, bastion hosts, and virtualization along with each solution's most common pitfalls. As we review each implementation, I will talk about both low-hanging and high-hanging fruit in terms of bypass methodologies, while giving real-world examples of leveraging weaknesses such as race conditions and configurations flaws to gain access to secured networks. I will do a deep dive into the architectures that most efficiently secure protected networks such as Microsoft's Privilege Access Workstations (PAWs) as well the management practices that create effective long-term security barriers.

Hackers Interrupted
Going beyond a breach or initial damage, let’s examine the minds of the hackers. What drives them to succeed, what makes them fail? It is a difficult task to understand internal motivations of a hacker, beyond the obvious, and rarely anyone tries. The practical approach shows opposite, understanding hacker’s thinking may lead to a reversal of their ill gains. Using practical examples from the largest breaches of today, we will get inside the hackers’ mind and find out how to stop them.

Removing Haystacks to find needles - Playing to our Strengths
We all have been fighting the cyber war with SIEMs to detect all the known attacks. In reality, the attack landscape is changing everyday and we cannot predict all possible attacks ahead of time. As security experts we know our environment better than any attacker out there. We cannot ever possibly know all the bad things that have crawled into our environment, however, we certainly know about all known good things in our environment. 

Come learn about how we can put that knowledge into play and change the game from finding the ‘Needle in A HayStack’ to ‘Removing Haystacks to Find Needles’ with some real world customer case studies.

"Humans, right?" Soft Skills and Security
Bridging the socio-technical divide is imperative to creating a secure future. The thing is, technologists and "normals" (i.e. non-technical folk, whom I've also heard called "Muggles" at cons-- because that's not demeaning or anything) work differently. We think differently. We speak differently. And until we're able to show normals that we understand their needs and are here to help, they will continue to view us with mistrust.

That, of course, requires that technologists actually be able to understand their needs. In my talk, I leverage insights from cognitive science, psychology, economics, design and other disciplines to help techies and infosec professionals engage with normals, be they executives or users, companies, customers or kids.

This topic should be considered because it is critical to the future of information security. Security won't work until it works for everyone, which includes the non-technical folks who shy away at any mention of "cybersecurity," "hackers," or "two-factor authentication."
 
Technologists are realizing this, and we are at the beginning of a shift in the infosec community: user experience and user interface designers are finding roles at cybersecurity companies; we're seeing tools with dashboards, not the command prompt. But successful user adoption requires education, interaction, and trust-- and that only comes with real-life, in-person interactions.

How an attacker uses data points to pivot from one source to another online. The target was a random target that was picked. Not only does it cover his current activity but his cached activity which enables attackers to target him. The story will show how an initial search to a complete PWNAGE was done on the individual because of a random blog that was discovered.

Sophisticuffs: The rumble over adversary sophistication
It has been a reoccurring theme for corporate victims of a major breach to publicly state that the attack perpetrated on them was sophisticated. Some may even go so far as to have their 3rd party DFIR partner(s) make statements on their behalf to the effect that the attack would have been successful at most companies. All this is done in an attempt to avoid the dreaded assumption of IT Security negligence on their part. Imagine if the press release stated that the attack might have been thwarted if they implemented processes and controls that were recommended by internal staff years ago. While we will never read that statement, many practitioners are left to wonder what was so unique and advanced about this attack. With this presentation we will present analysis of existing public attacks against traits that are more common in truly advanced attacks. These include but are not limited to the ability to operate undetected, precise targeting, use of non-public zero days and custom payloads, ability to defeat in place security controls, strong operational security, speed and of course overall effectiveness. We will also make clear delineations between what constitutes and advanced attack versus an advanced adversary. The output of this will be a model that can be applied to help characterize your adversaries capabilities.
