2010 Sneak peek: Presentation from Paul Asadoorian: Embedded System Hacking and My Plot To Take Over The World

We are happy to announce that Paul Asadoorian, also known from the @Pauldotcom security podcast, will be giving a presentation at BruCON. "Embedded System Hacking and My Plot To Take Over The World". This is just one of the many excellent presentations and workshops we have in store for the 2010 edition. More will be announced in the coming days.

Embedded systems, the purpose-built systems that encompass our world pose a threat to your data and infrastructure more than ever before. It seems that as Moore's law is proven time and time again, we as a society are seeing more and more embedded systems help us in our daily lives. Each time we use the computer on our home cable modem network, print an important document, or use a wireless network there is typically some kind of embedded system involved. These systems now represent the carriers of our data, from your computer to your online backing site, from the coffee shop network back to your corporate VPN. While embedded systems have made our lives easier, security is largely an afterthought. This presentation will take a look at common vulnerabilities in popular embedded systems that carry sensitive data every day.
Paul is also giving training during the BruCON training sessions on 22&23 September: Advanced Vulnerability Scanning Techniquess Using Nessus. Have a look at our entire training sessions for other excellent education opportunities.

Keep tuned for more announcements. Don't forget, you can still submit to our Call for Participation till next week!!!
