Hottest Briefings: Overall

Advanced CAN Injection Techniques for Vehicle Networks: Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek are together again, digging deep into the digital operations of the vehicle control system as they discuss how physical, safety-critical systems react to injected CAN messages, and how these systems are often resilient to this type of manipulation. During their 50-minute presentation, Miller and Valasek will outline new methods of CAN message injection that can bypass many of these restrictions and demonstrate the results on the braking, steering and acceleration systems of an automobile.

Breaking FIDO: Are Exploits In There?: During this 25-minute session, Jerrod Chong looks at vulnerabilities hidden within FIDO deployments, how difficult they are to exploit, and how enterprises and organizations can protect themselves. Chong, the VP of Solutions Engineering at Yubico, will also discuss security soft spots for potential exploitation; man-in-the-middle attacks; exploits aimed at supporting architecture; and compromises targeting physical hardware.
