...researching fundamentals of networking and communications


Black Hat 2011 Recap - 01/28/2011

Ari Trachtenberg

NISLAB weekly seminar, in conjunction with the RISCS center

This month's Black Hat conference covered a frightening array of potential exploits, including:

* Setting up rogue base stations to take over cellphones

* Attempts at technical attribution of the Stuxnet worm

* Bypassing tamper-evident seals

* Counterattacking hackers

* Making your cellphone look like a mouse

* Attacking the clouds

This presentation will cover as many of these as time allows, with an attempt to minimize required technical background.

Supported with funds from the College of Engineering Inaugural Innovative Engineering Education Faculty Fellowship
