    Philipp Krenn - Security Tradeoffs in Elasticsearch
    The NoSQL ecosystem thrived on combining scalability and simplicity. This talk focuses on some assumptions we built Elasticsearch on, which helped the ease of use initially, but turned out to be less than perfect for security in the long run: * Binding to all interfaces and broadcasting join requests to the whole subnet makes clustering simple. * Running as root is the straightforward option. * Using a general purpose programming language for scripting adds lots of features. * Guessing the content-type of a request is fine. * Default passwords and clear-text password files are a reasonable tradeoff.

    Alexander Polyakov - AI Security Challenges in 2020
    AI is steadily flooding our world sipping into various verticals from Autonomous cars, Robots to Defense, Media and Smart homes. Hundreds of new startups are implementing Ai solutions worldwide and we are getting closer to the point where machine learning-based solutions will eat traditional algorithms. While we more and less understand how to deal with software vulnerabilities we have no clue what’s happening in ML-based solutions and how it's possible to hack them except probably adversarial examples which recently attracted media attention after 5 years from the initial invention. But this area is rapidly growing and we are getting to the point when there will be over 2000 research papers presented on this topic and some of them will hit media only in 5 years or so. In this presentation I will show what is happening in AI security industry, the most closed cybersecurity area. We will discuss the most critical AI applications such as face recognition, self-driving cars, voice assistants and their latest attacks. Then we will discuss ML algorithms such as classification, regression, reinforcement learning, clustering, etc… and how to attack them. An finally we will look at the particular attack methods such as adversarial, privacy, poisoning, backdoor, reprogramming, and how they evolving.

    László Erdődi - Hacking Arena: an Innovative Learning Platform for Ethical Hackers & Hacker Robots
    The Hacking Arena project is an advanced offensive security-learning platform that has been established to support the ethical hacking education at the University of Oslo. As it has now become an open platform, the number of users from around the world is continuously increasing. The arena provides numerous hacking challenges of various topics such as e.g. web hacking or binary exploitation from beginner to professional level. As machine learning develops, some types of cyber attacks are getting more and more autonomous and also the complexity of the attacks in general is increasing nowadays. The main research aim of the arena regarding machine learning is to prepare for such future attacks by studying and analyzing different possibilities to make attacks automatic. The idea behind the machine learning approach is to process the human attacker’s (users) data continuously to train the robot hackers. The presentation will introduce the Hacking Arena, with live demos of challenges and their solutions and the principals of the robot hacker training part will be discussed as well.

    Zénó Amtmann - The Art of CISO
    While corporations historically tended to outsource their IT operations, companies were reorganized and established to fulfill this demand by creating shared service centers, centralized and specialized teams focusing on specific segments of the computing environment, the amount of individuals who retained the ability to appropriately oversight a corporations' information systems environment had significantly dropped. As the business relied more and more on the IT infrastructure and this foundation was targeted by cyber criminals at an increasing rate, C-level executives had to realize that financial threats no longer occur only as a result of a financial mis-statement or fraud, it can be the result of an ineffectively or inadequately managed IT infrastructure. In addition, governmental and regulatory scrutiny mandated and mandates these corporations to ensure that the outsourced service provider(s) is(are) acting based on the corporation's best interest and that the corporation has control over the activities that they had outsourced. Consequently, the companies are facing these requirements at times when the amount of individuals who have an accurate knowledge of the topology and the infrastructure of the company is very limited. That is why the role of a CI(S)O is an art - to understand the big picture, and to communicate the risks and needs of the company to all stakeholders at their level.

    Saurabh Chaudhary - YARA Rules on Steroids
    Whenever we want to proactively hunt for malware of interest for threat intelligence purposes, YARA is the swiss-army knife that makes the work of malware researchers and threat intelligence Researchers easier. Malware developers work just like legitimate software developers, aiming to reduce the time wasted on repetitive tasks wherever possible. That means they create and reuse code across their malware. This has a pay-off for malware hunters we can learn how to create search rules to detect this kind of code reuse, Traditional Yara rules are written on strings, but if we implement code leveraging YARA code reuse rules in addition with the strings rule the rule will last decades. for successful and long-term hits, we have to combine both string-based and code-based coverage. The key to efficient YARA rules depends on simple and clear rulesets utilizing both.

    Márk Modly - A Nem Unalmas XML Támadások - Elfelejtett Módszerek (HUN)
    Az elmúlt években egyre gyakoribb, hogy XML-lel kapcsolatos problémák felszínre kerülnek. Ez annak (is) köszönhető nagy részben hogy az aktuális OWASP TOP 10 listáján megjelent az XXE (XML eXternal Entity) attack. Ez üdvözölendő, azonban az XML világában nem csupán az external entity-k jelentenek problémát, látni fogjuk, hogy más támadási felület is akad. Sajnos legtöbb esetben amikor valaki egy XML sérülékenységet talál, akkor a legkisebb dologgal meg is elégszik, annak ellenére, hogy rengeteg hasznos információt lehetne a sérülékeny rendszerből a szokásos adatokon kívül megszerezni. Beszélni fogunk nem csupán az elterjedt XML támadási technikákról, de egy kicsit újra felfedezzük a spanyol viaszt és remélhetőleg beépítünk repertoárunkba olyan technikákat melyek rég elfeledettnek tűnnek, azonban a rendszerek nagyon is sérülékenyek velük kapcsolatban.
