Workshop - There's a Hacker in My Certificate Authority, Again.
Speaker: Roel Schouwenberg, Researcher, GReAT Kaspersky Lab

At the end of August, word got out about a rogue *.google.com certificate which had been found in the wild. It turned out that a Dutch certificate company, DigiNotar, had been compromised. Telemetry showed ~99% of the affected machines were based out of Iran. Hundreds of fraud SSL certificates were issued including domains toward Yahoo, Twitter, MSFT and the CIA. This incident can easily be classified as one of the most significant of the year.

In this presentation we'll look at the Diginotar attack as well as the attacks that preceded it. We'll also look at the ramifications of these CA breaches and the impact they've had. The presentation will be concluded with an outline of possible solutions to these problems.

Location: Pfizer Auditorium (Dibner)

Workshop - Android in Reverse
Speaker: Tim Armstrong: Researcher, Kaspersky Lab

In this lab, I will cover the basics of decompiling and reverse engineering Android applications. I will cover the use of a couple of tools; dex2jar and jd-gui that can make viewing decompiled source code easy and efficient. We'll look at two examples of Android malware and discuss the pros and cons of this decompilation method.

Mudge, front man for the L0pht, founder of @stake, author of L0phtCrack, and a pioneer in vulnerability discovery and disclosure still calls himself a "hacker". As a senior DoD official working as a Program Manager at DARPA (the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency) he is designing and funding cyber research programs for the U.S. Government. He is additionally working to build areas of aligned interest between the cyber security research community and the government so that both parties can better become resources to each other.
