DeepSec 2021 Training: How to Break and Secure Single Sign-On (OAuth and OpenID Connect) – Karsten Meyer zu Selhausen

Sanna/ August 23, 2021/ Training/ 0 comments

Implementing single sign-on has huge benefits in general. It allows to design the registration and login process for users to be as simple as possible, and enables applications to be connected to social networks. Although OAuth and OpenID Connect are established as today’s common standards, serious attacks on them have been discovered within recent years. These attacks exploit the complexity of the underlying standards and implementation flaws, and allow attackers to authenticate themselves as arbitrary users or to access confidential user data. By doing so, attackers can potentially read, manipulate, or delete data of arbitrary users across these applications. Due to the critical role that single sign-on fulfills in applications nowadays, it is important to understand and address pitfalls when using OAuth and OpenID Connect. However, automatic security scanners are not able to properly

Press Release: Modern Desktops as a Security Hole – DeepSec Conference offers Trainings and Tests for Secure Applications

Sanna/ June 1, 2021/ Press, Training/ 0 comments

What do a modern office application and a fancy oil pipeline have in common? A desktop that led to disaster. Graphical interfaces for operating computers go back to research in the 1960s and 1970s. At that time people thought about how computers can best support people. By the 1990s at the latest, the desktop became a battleground for market dominance. That has stayed the same, only there are additional security aspects. After all, the desktop is often the first step from an attacker to a company’s digital treasures. The annual DeepSec conference offers security experts and developers a two-day crash course on desktop security. No attack without interaction Many successful attacks on companies or infrastructure depend on cooperation with the victims. Malware is executed using tricks and only then does it compromise the system.

Press Release: Current Threats in Cellular Networks – DeepSec Security Conference offers Security Training in dealing with Current Cellular Technology

Sanna/ May 26, 2021/ Press, Training/ 0 comments

In the past 40 years, cellular technology has achieved a veritable triumph. Availability, stability and data rates have increased significantly compared to the origins of 1G / 2G networks. The enthusiasm for security research in this area is not quite as enthusiastic. There are still weak points and tradeoffs in information security. At the first DeepSec conference in 2007, the weaknesses of A5 encryption were revealed. This year’s conference therefore again offers a two-day workshop on the security of current cellular technology. Basis of the communication society Many of the conveniences of modern life are inconceivable without cellular networks. The internet is almost always available.

Press Release: Low-tech Attacks. Critical Infrastructure poorly secured – Attacks against Colonial Pipeline used Standard Access Tools

Sanna/ May 20, 2021/ Press, Training/ 0 comments

In May, the operator of the US Colonial Pipeline was the victim of a ransomware attack. After such reports, calls for better security and additional measures are always loud. In fact, analyzes of these attacks often reveal deficiencies in basic security. Often it is not even necessary to use complicated and sophisticated tools to attack critical infrastructure. Attackers like to use standard tools that are available everywhere so as not to attract attention. The lack of basic security makes it possible. Custom camouflage When defending your own systems and networks, it is necessary to know exactly what the infrastructure is like. Organized groups that attack companies research exactly what is being used at the target before the attack. According to this planning phase, only tools are used that are plausible to the victim and

DeepSec 2021: A lack of software security paralyzes the economy in times of crisis – visit DeepSec 2021 to train your developers

Sanna/ April 20, 2021/ Development, Press, Training/ 0 comments

In every crisis, one’s own infrastructure and logistics are put to serious tests. The COVID-19 pandemic illustrates this particularly drastically through the many structural failures in the past 12 months. They try to solve biological problems with smartphones, favor dead-end technologies such as blockchain, discover the lack of network expansion in recent decades and then panic and publish software applications that are only subjected to serious tests after they have been published. All these quick fixes are snapshots of a lack of sustainability. But the economy is dependent on stable solutions based on many years of experience, especially now. In November 2021, the DeepSec conference would like to give support to everyone who works with software through trainings and the transfer of experience from security researchers.

Call for IoT Trainings: Secure Development for embedded Devices

René Pfeiffer/ March 24, 2021/ Discussion, Training/ 0 comments

The world is much easier to handle without limits. If you have all your frameworks freely available and have the luxury of running your code with a multi-MB (or -GB) runtime environment, then you are in paradise. The world of embedded devices and the Internet of Things looks different. Saving energy is the prime directive. The power supply might be a battery or the connector pin of another device. Multiple cores are rare, memory is even rarer. If you are acquainted with the container and cloud lifestyle, then embedded systems will be a culture shock. Think kilo instead of mega or giga. Small devices run code, too. So this is where security comes into play. What can you do to design your embedded code to be small and secure? Secure design and coding have

Bypassing CSP via ajax.googleapis.com – Dawid Czagan

Sanna/ July 7, 2020/ Training

Content Security Policy (CSP) is the number one defensive technology in modern web applications. Many developers add ajax.googleapis.com to CSP definitions, because they use libraries from this very popular CDN in their web applications. The problem is that it completely bypasses the CSP and obviously you don’t want that to happen. Since CSP should be part of any modern application, you better get to work and brush up your knowledge. In a free video Dawid Czagan (DeepSec Instructor) will show you step-by-step how your CSP can be bypassed by hackers.

Exploiting Race Conditions – Dawid Czagan

Sanna/ July 1, 2020/ Training

A race condition attack is one of the most dangerous and underestimated attacks on modern web applications. It’s related to concurrency and multithreading.  As a result of this attack an attacker, who has $1000 in his bank account, can transfer way more than $1000 from his bank account. This is just one example, but it clearly shows how dangerous this attack is. If you develop or use software connected to a network, then this is for you. In a free video Dawid Czagan (DeepSec Instructor) will show you step-by-step how this attack works and tell you how to prevent this attack from happening.
