  1. Dear Offensive Warfare 2.0 Community Member, It's been several years and unfortunately a decade since we last communicated though the visionary eyes of my research circa 2008-2013 when we used to rock the boat in terms of publishing quality third-party research and analysis successfully educating hundreds of thousands of users on current cyber attacks techniques and methodologies on current and emerging Web-based attacks spreading knowledge data and information successfully educating the Security Community and the Security Industry on current and emerging cyber threats. Following a successful series of productive and knowledge and information-driven years in the works including hundreds of thousands of loyal users the Bulgarian hacker and Information Security expert Dancho Danchev ( - today's World's leading expert in the field of cybercrime research security blogging and Threat Intelligence gathering with over a decade in experience in fighting malicious and nation-state malicious and fraudulent actors leading to a successful set of hundreds of published quality analysis and research articles is proud to present the general availability and official launch of the Offensive Warfare 2.0 Hacking and Cyber Security Community.

  2. No technology since the Internet itself has bewitched so many as the blockchain. Not just a "digital ledger", the blockchain is touted in the normal tech-averse business press as a "trust machine". In truth the blockchain has just one special trick: it determines the ordering of entries in the ledger without an umpire. If this is important, the value proposition is weakened by almost every modification and spin-off put forward so far. Blockchain’s advocates tend to overlook its one unique feature, while claiming a whole lot of things it simply doesn’t do. This presentation will debunk the blockchain, especially the myth of open source "math money", and issue some strong challenges to its proponents and their approach to security.
  3. - The sophistication of today’s threat landscape - Lessons learnt in government intelligence on defending against fast- moving adversaries - Using machine learning for automatic threat detection and efficient resource allocation - Gaining visibility into 100% network activity and mitigate problems early
  4. Zero Touch and Knowledge hacking can be used to steal intellectual data, exploit the most secure organizations, and social engineer ultimate access. Learn how one can track down criminals, spies, and the every-man as they leak their data. Learn techniques only taught to law-enforcement and private detectives on how you can track down anyone, and how hackers use this data against you. What sort of protection do you have against them?This talk will examine techniques used by law-enforcement, government intelligence agencies, organized criminals, and hackers that use open-source intelligence, social engineering techniques, and cyber warfare techniques to obtain and extract the most sensitive information from the most secure organizations around the world. Some techniques that we will cover is how and where people hide metadata and use steganography in public web forums embedded in images to communicate secretly, how private investigators find and track people who do not want to be found, how to track anyone with a phone number, how to buy and sell zero-day exploits and malware, and advanced social engineering attacks and phishing techniques.
  5. The majority of all data breach incidents do not result from circumvention of advanced defensive systems and complex security controls; but from the failure of well-established systems, in particular firewalls, that have become too numerous and complex to manage effectively. In this presentation we will discuss the implications of firewall policy complexity, why it remains a problem today and how to resolve it.
  6. In a culture of convenience, can a balance be struck between the need for simplicity and security? What happens when the basic man-machine trust is violated As a security researcher and developer of renowned penetration testing equipment, these questions are at the core of my attack tool arsenal. Moreover, they're the key to the future of privacy-protecting technologies. Part social, part technical - we'll explore the inherent vulnerabilities exploited by a number of Hak5 developed tools with funny names like Pineapple, Turtle, Monkey and Rubber Ducky and answer the questions: How is it that user-friendly features which let Grandma setup printers came to enable air gap hopping attacks against uranium enriching centrifuges? And, how can these techniques be used to provide all of humanity with transparent end-to-end encryption?
  7. The speaker was drawn into the very middle of defending RSA Security against a serious military grade cyber attack in 2011. Yes, that one. Through that experience and work with the intelligence and defense agencies of several countries, as well as his work with many large customers, the author gained unique insight into how these breaches unfold, how pervasive they are, and how we actually help our attackers. This talk will focus on some of the things which we as an industry do to make it easier for the attacker, and some ideas on how we can better defend against these types of attacks.  In addition, this talk will touch on the methods used by the attackers, and shifts in mind sets which we all need to undertake if we are to defend ourselves against this type of determined attacker.
  8. The TLS protocol - by far the most important cryptographic protocol in use today - came under much more scrutiny during the past years. Attacks against the protocol itself and against implementations have made headlines. Faulty implementations can enable attacks. In some cases they can even be a security risk for uninvolved third parties and endanger the whole TLS ecosystem. Especially so-called Enterprise devices that have their own TLS stack are often a reason for concern. The speaker will give an overview of implementation errors that happened in various TLS stacks and will shed light on this underappreciated problem.
  9. Enterprise companies are using consumer and IoT devices to complete (or expand) their services such as broadband, IPTV, media streaming, satellite, voice and 3G/4G services. Although the devices are owned by the service providers, subscribers have limited (or full) access to them with service agreements. In addition to that, some of consumer devices also have roles on corporate communications, environment security or employee services. Consumer devices are located at subscriber premises; therefore, the traditional security testing approach only covers backend services security, not the devices. Consumer and IoT devices are susceptible to hardware hacking based attacks such as firmware dumping, re-flashing with a custom firmware, and getting low level access using the physical management interfaces such as SPI, JTAG and UART. Low level access obtained can be used to modify device behaviours or their initial states. This helps attackers to debug consumer devices and operator services, to find new vulnerabilities, and to obtain the device configuration which may contain credentials for the service infrastructure. Embedded device and hardware hacking is a rising skill set for penetration testers. It is required to understand targeted attacks which may include hardware implants, modified hardware attacking their own infrastructure or compromised devices that target the human factor. Some of advanced testing examples to be discussed are preparing a custom hardware for persistent access during a red teaming exercise, preparing a compromised consumer device for human factor pen-testing, attacking TR-069 services of a provider using smart home modems or altering the security controls of a device to abuse the service. The presentation focuses on how the existing security testing techniques should be evolved with hardware and IoT hacking, and how service providers can make their infrastructure secure for cutting-edge attacks. Essential hardware hacking information, identifying and using physical management interfaces, hardware hacking toolset, well-known hardware attacks and hardware testing procedure will be presented in a road map for consumer devices security testing. Also a security testing approach will be explained to develop new security testing services and to improve existing ones such as red teaming, human factor pen-testing and infrastructure pen-testing.
  10. Radio frequencies present an interesting research topic for information security; not only does its history provide a wealth of lessons learnt, recent developments are seeing a re-emergence as an attack surface. The proliferation of a number of technologies alongside the ever-evolving information security domain warrants a revisit of this field. The purpose of this talk is to provide an understanding of history of radio frequencies in the context of information security with an appreciation of current risks, and guidance to remove or otherwise mitigate.
  11. We are often told by vendors that we need the latest and greatest technology to better protect our organizations - but do we really? Are our security teams / CSIRTs / SOCs actually prepared to use that new technology to its best effect? We find the answer is often: “no”. Many organizations gloss over the basics, and try to integrate the latest cutting edge technology and techniques before they have the skills and processes in place to handle them. This talk proposes methods that you can use to work out when you are really ready for the Next Big Thing in your security team, and provides you with a roadmap to help guide you on your journey. We will address: * Where does your team sit on the maturity spectrum? * What does a good improvement roadmap include? * How do you know your organization is ready to use: * Large scale data feeds * Threat Intel * Big Data * Machine learning * What basics do you need to get right, and in what order?
  12. In this talk I will outline the use cases, explain McCallum-Relyea exchange and provide an overview of the network protocol, design and implementation of Tang and Clevis. There will be a live demo showing the setup and operation of Tang and Clevis to automatically decrypt LUKS volume keys and TLS private keys in Apache. The talk will conclude with a discussion of assumptions, limitations and threats in the Tang protocol, and how the protocol can play a part in more complex access policies (wherein *Shamir's Secret Sharing* makes an appearance).
  13. With rapid digitisation there are growing concerns about information security in the health sector. Security threats are intensified by the increased interconnectedness of information systems and by consumer participation in health processes. The potential for large-scale system failure as a result of cyber attacks is very real. In this presentation I will survey current trends in health information systems including consumer technologies. I will then examine case studies in hospitals, general practice and the consumer space to discuss cybersecurity challenges unique to health. The presentation will aim to improve understanding about health information systems and to identify gaps and areas for further work.
  14. Although SIEM has been the cornerstone of security data analysis for years, it has struggled to meet the data triage and analysis needs required for incident response and hunting. It is too slow, difficult to use, and is often inadequately tuned or maintained to be helpful for on-demand data analysis. In this session we’ll explore new security analytics technologies – rapid search, natural language, pattern-based correlations, and unstructured data – that can extend the on-demand data analysis of the SIEM to improve threat hunting and accelerate incident response.
  15. In October 2014 the Australian Commonwealth Minister for Justice & Counter-Terrorism launched IDCARE, Australia's specialist identity support service. Eighteen months on, IDCARE has responded to thousands of Australians that have experienced the compromise and misuse of their personal information. Amongst these have been business owners, large government departments, corporate leaders and everyday Australians. This presentation provides an overview of the aftermath of cybercrime that has directly targeted personal information, its compromise and misuse. It will highlight what consumers want, expect, and experience. It will highlight the good, the bad, and the ugly of Australia's aftermath to cybercrime. Importantly, it will highlight what strategies and approaches organisations across the cyber security industry can take to make a difference - to turn a crisis event into a confidence event.
