Black Hat Asia 2015: And Three for the Road

Black Hat Asia 2015 is just around the corner, so now's the time to finalize your preps and make sure your plans are in order. You have until March 20 to enjoy the standard registration rate, so there's no time like the present! While you ponder that, cast your eyes over this final, grab-bag round-up of interesting Asia 2015 Briefings. There's a little bit of everything in this one.

Porting code sucks, so cross-platform frameworks can make life immeasurably easier for harried developers. This is especially true with today's proliferation of mobile platforms. Unfortunately this convenience comes at the loss of security, which is the topic of The Nightmare Behind the Cross-Platform Mobile Apps Dream. Marco Grassi and Sebastian Guerrero will explore and analyze the most popular cross-platform frameworks for mobile development, exposing the vulnerabilities and assessing the security implications.

Speaking of security implications, the ever-accelerating lifecycle of cloud instances demands we change and improve the way we secure them. When servers are installed, launched, and terminated, within minutes traditional processes such as periodic patches, vulnerability scanning, hardening, and forensics become impossible. From Zero to Secure in One Minute explores the implications of this brave new world, including the need for automated security processes and pre-boot patching. It will also introduce Cloudefigo, a new open-source tool to enable this accelerated security lifecycle. Remember, a secure cloud's a happy one.

Lastly, wireless systems and their radio signals, are everywhere: consumer, corporate, government, amateur -- widely deployed and often vulnerable. Hacking the Wireless World with Software Defined Radio - 2.0 will reveal just what sorts of information are buzzing all around us, and how to "blindly" analyze and reverse-engineer any such signal from the physical layer up. Cheap radios, open-source tools, crypto cracking, aircraft tracking, hunting down broadcast sources... sound like fun to you, too?

Black Hat Asia 2015 takes place next week, March 24 to 27, at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore. If you're planning to come, it's high time to lock in your spot, which you can do here.
