Brush Up on the Latest Security Techniques at Black Hat USA

Learn to set malware lures, pinpoint unintentional but identifying human behaviors, and detect industrial control system attacks via sensor noise.

Boatloads of new Briefings been confirmed for Black Hat USA this August, and among them are a number of practical, actionable deep dives into cutting edge cybersecurity issues.

Worm Charming: Harvesting Malware Lures for Fun and Profit promises to show you how to set up malware lures that can - by applying a series of YARA rules - charm interesting malware samples to the surface from the ~1M files uploaded to Virus Total daily.

You’ll learn how to harvest lures for the purposes of dissection and detection, and explore mechanisms for identifying interesting samples that can give you a heads-up about what attacks are coming. This is a useful skill to have along with multiple real-world examples showing how an astute researcher can harvest zero-day exploits from the public domain.

In I'm Unique, Just Like You: Human Side-Channels and Their Implications for Security and Privacy you’ll be given an expert’s perspective on which identifiers are unintentional, non-physical, and generated as a result of human behaviors and activities, yet can still be used to uniquely identify and/or track individual users in the digital realm.

These "human side-channels" (among them forensic linguistics, behavioral signatures, and cultural references) take training to spot. In this Briefing you’ll learn how to do just that, as well as how side-channels can be used by bad actors to erode privacy, and possible countermeasures to disguise your own human side-channels. Don’t miss it!

Sensor and Process Fingerprinting in Industrial Control Systems will revisit some common cyber and cyber-physical attack vectors to critical infrastructure (like electricity and power distribution), as well as current defense strategies against such attacks.

This is a great opportunity to get an expert demonstration of how noise in industrial sensors and their inherent processes can be used to detect both cyber and physical attacks. Plus, you’ll learn how building a model based on the noise profile of both sensors and process can effectively detect such attacks.

All three of these Briefings are part of the Black Hat USA Applied Security track, which aims to serve up topics and techniques that attendees will be able to put into practice as soon as they get home.

For more information about these Briefings and many more check out the Black Hat USA Briefings page, which is regularly updated with new content as we get closer to the event!

Black Hat USA will return to the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas August 3-8, 2019. For more information on what’s happening at the event and how to register, check out the Black Hat website.
