Black Hat Europe kicks off in London this December and while we’re still months away there’s already a cornucopia of interesting and practical Enterprise Briefings which shine a light on some of the most intriguing enterprise security research done to date.
Exploiting Windows Hello for Business promises to reveal several new attack vectors in the current implementation of Windows Hello for Business that might lead to privilege escalation and persistence attacks. Plus, you’ll learn about a new type of persistent Active Directory backdoor and other weaknesses, as well as get up to speed on a new toolset that can be used to scan corporate environments for the aforementioned vulnerabilities, and resolve any issues found.
In Implementing the Lessons Learned From a Major Cyber Attack you’ll have the opportunity to hear directly from a representative of Maersk about what security professionals learned in the wake of the company’s 2017 data breach. This is a rare opportunity to find out what it’s like to be on the receiving end of a major notpetya cyber-attack, and get practical advice on safeguarding your own projects against similar threats.
If you or your clients use smartcards for security reasons make sure to check out Bring Your Own Token (BYOT) to Replace the Traditional Smartcards for Strong Authentication and Signing. In this session you’ll see what Cisco accomplished by replacing traditional hybrid smartcards (used for both facility access and IT authentication) with a “Bring Your Own Token (BYOT)” model of enterprise security. You’ll discover how users can bring their own USB tokens (compatible with Personal Identity Verification [PIV] and Chip Card Interface Device [CCID] standards) to self-provision the digital identities they need to enable strong authentication, signing and other cryptographic functions.
Get more information on these and lots of other cutting-edge content in the Briefings schedule for Black Hat Europe, which returns to The Excel in London December 2-5, 2019.
