Dont Miss these Intriguing Black Hat Asia Briefings

With two weeks to go, organizers would like to quickly highlight some Black Hat Asia Briefings that you may have overlooked!

Black Hat Asia kicks off in Singapore two weeks from today, and as you’re finalizing your schedule, organizers would like to quickly highlight some intriguing Briefings.

AcuTherm: A Hybrid Attack on Password Entry Based on Both Acoustic and Thermal Side-Channels” is an efficient (25 minutes!) look at the very real risks of password theft “side channels” in your organization.

While you may be familiar with thermal attacks (when someone uses a thermal camera to capture password data from a recently-used keyboard) and acoustic attacks (capturing password data by identifying the sounds of it being typed in), researchers will introduce you to a new class of hybrid attacks that combine respective powers (and advantages) of thermal and acoustic side-channels.

You’ll see the results firsthand, based on experiments with over 20 subjects using three common keyboards and many representative passwords. You will also get some useful insight on how to combat this novel side-channel attack.

In “Keep Everyone In Sync: Effective Approaches Borrowed from Open Source Communities” an experienced open-source community organizer will give you some practical advice about how to keep your team organized and informed.

It’s an intriguing 50-minute Briefing that will walk you through everything from bridging the gap between instant messaging clients and old-school tools like the Pine email client to how to collaborate offline using a special set of Danmaku tools. Don’t miss out!

And before you close out the show, make time to check out “Decisions and Revisions - The Ever Evolving Face of the Black Hat NOC”, the popular Friday afternoon session which lets attendees get up close and personal with the Black Hat Asia Network Operations Center.

This is a great Briefing to see because the Black Ha Asia team will walk you through the process of deciding what equipment and services they deploy on the Black Hat network, and the reasoning around those decisions.

They’ll also discuss the changes made when deploying and securing a network in the U.S., Europe, and Asia, and will share some of the behavioral differences they see in the attendees of those shows, both good and bad. There will be stories and stats  as well as a full debrief on this year’s show and what it means for the industry as a whole!

Black Hat Asia returns to the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore March 26-29, 2019. For more information on what's happening at the event and how to register, check out the Black Hat website.
