  • 19:00 – 19:30 Revisiting “Smashing the stack”: A GDB story – by Cristian Bidea (Software Engineer)

A look at what changed in the security landscape from when the seminal paper was published, through the lens of a timeless tool: The GNU Debugger!

  • 19:30 – 20:00 Consensual Surveillance: GPS/GSM monitoring watch – by Mircea Hasegan (Software Engineer)

Regardless of the species, parents need to take care of their young ones, make sure they are not exposed to high-risk situations, and can always cry for help. It is the basic need for safety. Traditionally this was achieved by imposing restrictions on the playground area, having an adult or bigger brother around, and being in the reach in case of danger. New devices have come along, offering attractive features for keeping children safe: cellular phones with parental control features, tracking devices, and wristwatches with GPS tracking and phone functionality.

  • 20:00 – 21:00 Q&A, networking, pizza & beer 🍕 🍺

Security Espresso 0x1a

Come to learn about DNS censorship and how to organize a Capture the Flag competition.RSVP here to save your front row spot on April 23, starting 18:30!

 

Event agenda

  • 18:30 – 19:00 Registration
  • 19:00 – 19:45 Michael Casadevall – Censorship through DNS – Studying Tampering of Domain Name Information on the Public Internet

DNS tampering is one of the most common forms of Internet censorship. This is primarily due to a lack of authentication and the ease of manipulating traffic on the fly and can take a multitude of forms. This type of censorship has been used to enforce various gag orders such as was used the British Isles to block torrent websites. It is also a known technique used by China’s Great Firewall. It can be used to simply block websites, redirect users to seemingly correct sites, and is difficult for the typical user to detect. For example, this type of attack could be used to redirect a user silently from a whistleblowing website to a honeypot. While efforts are underway to create secure amendments to DNS, they cannot solve these fundamental problems.

In an effort to understand how widespread DNS censorship is, I have created a special tool known as DNS Catcher to study in-flight responses, and check them against known good authoritative data to confirm their authenticity. By doing so, we can develop new tools and methods to detect DNS tampering, and at a minimum, prevent users from unknowingly connecting to addresses that are known to have been tampered with.

  • 20:00 – 20:45 Anatol Prisăcaru – Organizing a CTF: Lessons Learned Over the Years

I bet you’ve always wondered what goes into creating a Capture the Flag competition. I bet you wondered how we balance the feasibility of finding a flag with the challenge of burying it inside systems with obscure vulnerabilities. Popping boxes is fun, but do you know what it takes to craft that satisfying experience?

This talk is going to answer all these questions and more! I’ve been crafting CTF challenges for 5 years now and I have a few stories to tell: from the way we craft challenges to the way we set up the infrastructure. From how to come up with versatile and unpredictable challenges, to how to maintain a good difficulty progression and enforce rules. If you’ve ever been curious about what goes on behind the scenes of a CTF, or ever wanted to organize a competition of your own – I’ve got you.
