Black Hat Europe 2017:
Deep Dive Into Crypto Vulnerabilities

Thoroughly addressing security concerns requires a combination of technical and social approaches. Using cryptographic techniques to encrypt data through complex algorithms is an essential component of any security program. Understand the role of encryption in security architecture and develop in-demand skills with the following Black Hat Europe 2017 Trainings, Briefings and Arsenal open-source tools.

 

Crypto Attacks and Defenses imparts foundational knowledge in identification and elimination of cryptographic vulnerabilities. In this two day course, students will master the latest challenges and approaches, including elliptic-curve, quantum, post-quantum cryptography and more. Begin with a basic understanding of Python, public-key and secret-key cryptography, leave with profound comprehension of cryptographic software implementations. Gain actionable experience through hands-on training using real-world secure messaging and blockchain systems.

Key Reinstallation Attacks: Breaking the WPA2 Protocol details protocol-level weaknesses in the Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2) security protocol that allow key reinstallation (KRACK) attacks. The protocol-level location fundamentally impacts standard implementations affecting personal and enterprise networks. Researchers share results of tests highlighting multiple unique attack vectors for accessing secure data and compromising connected systems. Every single Wi-Fi device is susceptible to this form of attack.

Fed Up Getting Shattered and Log Jammed? A New Generation of Crypto is Coming explores modern algorithms and standardized functions derived out of them. Researchers also introduce two cryptographic protocols created out of SHA-3: Strobe, a symmetric traffic protection protocol and Disco, a TLS like protocol and library. SHA-3 lends its core cryptographic functionalities, including simplifying logic, reducing code size and increasing capabilities (hashing, generating random numbers, deriving keys, and more).

By-design Backdooring of Encryption System - Can We Trust Foreign Encryption Algorithms dissects the BEA-1, block cipher algorithm made public in 2017. Similar to the AES, BEA-1 contains a mathematical backdoor enabling an operational and effective cryptanalysis. Mathematical backdoors can be completely public yet remain inaccessible and challenging. Hear how BEA-1 was developed and learn new concepts for designing complex, undetectable backdoors.

Thalos - Simple and Secure Approach to Storage in Untrusted Environments encrypts files and prohibits decryption regardless of physical or virtual server access. Files are protected by unique cryptographic algorithms yet accessible on multiple devices. A master key and public key create a Master Key Pair which encrypts the user basefile. See a live demonstration at Black Hat Europe 2017 Arsenal on Wednesday, December 6.

Enhance your cryptography skills and more at Black Hat Europe, held at ExCeL London, December 4-7, 2017.

CVE-2021-37436
PUBLISHED: 2021-07-24
Amazon Echo Dot devices through 2021-07-02 sometimes allow attackers, who have physical access to a device after a factory reset, to obtain sensitive information via a series of complex hardware and software attacks. NOTE: reportedly, there were vendor marketing statements about safely removing pers...
CVE-2021-32686
PUBLISHED: 2021-07-23
PJSIP is a free and open source multimedia communication library written in C language implementing standard based protocols such as SIP, SDP, RTP, STUN, TURN, and ICE. In PJSIP before version 2.11.1, there are a couple of issues found in the SSL socket. First, a race condition between callback and ...
CVE-2021-32783
PUBLISHED: 2021-07-23
Contour is a Kubernetes ingress controller using Envoy proxy. In Contour before version 1.17.1 a specially crafted ExternalName type Service may be used to access Envoy's admin interface, which Contour normally prevents from access outside the Envoy container. This can be used to shut down Envoy rem...
CVE-2021-3169
PUBLISHED: 2021-07-23
An issue in Jumpserver 2.6.2 and below allows attackers to create a connection token through an API which does not have access control and use it to access sensitive assets.
CVE-2020-20741
