DeepSec 2019 Talk: Oh! Auth: Implementation Pitfalls of OAuth 2.0 & the Auth Providers Who Have Fell in It – Samit Anwer

Sanna/ October 31, 2019/ Conference

Since the beginning of distributed personal computer networks, one of the toughest problems has been to provide a seamless and secure SSO experience between unrelated servers/services. OAuth is an open protocol to allow secure authorization in a standard method from web, mobile and desktop application. The OAuth 2.0 authorization framework enables third-party applications to obtain discretionary access to a web service. Built on top of OAuth 2, OpenID Connect is a helpful “identity layer” that provides developers with a framework to build functional and secure authentication systems. OpenID Connect can perform identity authorization and provide basic profile information for different clients, from web and mobile apps to JavaScript clients. In this race of providing OAuth/Open ID Connect based access to assets, authorization service providers have been forced to release half-baked solutions in the wild

DeepSec 2019 Talk: New Tales of Wireless Input Devices – Matthias Deeg

Sanna/ September 13, 2019/ Conference

You can’t do much with computer without input devices. Microphones do not count, yet. This leaves the classic selection of human input. How secure are these devices? Did you ever wonder when typing, moving the mouse pointer, or attaching a presenting tool? Well, your questions will be answered at DeepSec 2019. Matthias Deeg will hold a talk where new security tales of wireless input devices like mice, keyboards, presenters, and barcode scanners using different 2.4 GHz radio-based communication technologies will be presented that have been collected over the last two years. Furthermore, SySS IT Security expert Matthias will present answers to unanswered questions of his previous wireless desktop set research and raise the awareness of security issues and practical attacks against vulnerable wireless input devices.   Matthias is interested in information technology – especially

DeepSec 2018 Training: Attacking Internet of Things with Software Defined Radio – Johannes Pohl

Sanna/ September 10, 2018/ Conference, Security, Training

In Johannes Pohls training participants will learn how to reverse engineer the wireless communication between Internet of Things (IoT) devices with Software Defined Radios (SDR) using the Universal Radio Hacker (URH). The workshop covers required HF (high frequency) basics such as digital modulations and encodings and shows how to reveal the protocol logic step by step and, finally, how to develop attacks against devices. For demonstration they will investigate and attack a wireless socket and a smart home door lock. During the course of the workshop the communication of the two devices will be analyzed and reverse engineered. In conclusion, attacks on both devices will be developed. By the end of the workshop participants will be able to switch the socket and open the door lock with SDRs. This of course requires knowledge in the
