DEF CON 25 - John Sotos - Genetic Diseases to Guide Digital Hacks of the Human Genome

operating system (and set of application programs) built on the digital molecules DNA and RNA. The genome has thousands of publicly documented, unpatchable security vulnerabilities, previously called “genetic diseases.” Because emerging DNA/RNA technologies, including CRISPR-Cas9 and especially those arising from the Cancer Moonshot program, will create straightforward methods to digitally reprogram the genome in free-living humans, malicious exploitation of genomic vulnerabilities will soon be possible on a wide scale. This presentation shows the breathtaking potential for such hacks, most notably the exquisite targeting precision that the genome supports — in effect, population, and time — spanning annoyance to organized crime …

DEF CON 24 - Jmaxxz - Backdooring the Frontdoor

As our homes become smarter and more connected we come up with new ways of reasoning about our privacy and security. Vendors promise security, but provide little technical information to back up their claims. Further complicating the matter, many of these devices are closed systems which can be difficult to assess. This talk will explore the validity of claims made by one smart lock manufacturer about the security of their product. The entire solution will be deconstructed and examined all the way from web services to the lock itself. By exploiting multiple vulnerabilities Jmaxxz will demonstrate not only how to …

It was widely believed that DeSalvo was imprisoned for a series of the rapes. However, his murder confession has been disputed, and debate continues as to which crimes he actually committed. In July 2013, DNA was matched between seminal fluid found at the rape and murder of Mary Sullivan and DNA obtained from DeSalvo’s nephew, linking DeSalvo to the murder of Sullivan and excluding …

Wireless security testing

Wireless security testing with attack by Keiichi Horiai - CODE BLUE 2015

We are in the IoT era. In this session, the function of GNURadio will be introduced with demonstration. GNURadio is a SDR (Software Defined Radio) tool to analyze wireless security such as Bluetooth LE. As an example of a SDR usage, I will demonstrate the replay attack for RF signal of ADS-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast) mounted on an aircraft and sniffer for wireless keyboards. Ideas of the counter measurement will also be discussed.

DEF CON 25 – Christopher Domas – Breaking the x86 Instruction Set

DEF CON 25 - Christopher Domas - Breaking the x86 Instruction Set

A processor is not a trusted black box for running code; on the contrary, modern x86 chips are packed full of secret instructions and hardware bugs. In this talk, we’ll demonstrate how page fault analysis and some creative processor fuzzing can be used to exhaustively search the x86 instruction set and uncover the secrets buried in your chipset. We’ll disclose new x86 hardware glitches, previously unknown machine instructions, ubiquitous software bugs, and flaws in enterprise hypervisors. Best of all, we’ll release our sandsifter toolset, so that you can audit – and break – your own processor.
