Black Hat Europe kicks off in London this December, so it’s time to start looking over the Briefings schedule and Arsenal lineup to ensure you make the most of the event. Both are jam-packed with notable speakers and interesting content, so take advantage of the “Tracks” feature of the schedule to sort and filter the list to find the Briefings and Arsenal demos most relevant to your interests.
If you’re focused on reverse engineering, for example, you might be interested in checking out Trust in Apple's Secret Garden: Exploring & Reversing Apple's Continuity Protocol, in which an independent security researcher will dive deep into the inner workings and weaknesses of Apple’s Continuity protocol. Or you could check out Unleashing the Power of My 20+ Years Old Car, a reverse engineering track Briefing in which a vulnerability researcher will walk you through the process of reverse-engineering and bypassing a speed limiter (set to kick in at speeds in excess of ~180 km/hour) installed in his 1997 Subaru Impreza to make it comply with Japanese law.
If you stop by the Arsenal, located in the Business Hall, check out live demos for products and services like CrackQ: Intelligent Password Hacking, a Python-based queuing system for managing hash cracking using Hashcat. There are several tools available for this purpose but CrackQ was born from the frustration of using these tools on a daily basis. It adds some new and interesting features as solutions to these frustrations. Y ou can learn all about it at Black Hat Europe in December.
Find further details on these and many other useful presentations in the Briefings schedule and the Arsenal lineup for Black Hat Europe, which returns to The Excel in London December 2-5, 2019.
