Black Hat Asia 2015: Hide and Seek

Most children enjoy hide and seek, but for jaded adults to enjoy the classic pastime, it needs a little extra... I don't know, danger? You know, to keep things exciting. Today we'll check out two Black Hat Asia 2015 Trainings -- one involving hiding, the other seeking -- that could well deliver a thrilling jolt of excitement, should you be the right kind of security geek.

First up, hiding... data, of course. With the sticky fingers of high-end adversaries everywhere you can imagine (as well as places you'd rather not), obscuring the existence of data becomes ever more challenging. One solution is steganography, the art of hiding data within other data. Why, yes, there is something extra lurking in that JPEG, that CD, and that video. Come to Malicious Steganography: Implementation and Detection for a comprehensive deep dive that will introduce key concepts like data compression, information theory and entropy, and the quirks of human perception. Then they'll move on to more advanced steganographic and steganalytic techniques such as bit-plane complexity segmentation, high-capacity jpeg hiding, F5, and statistical hiding in audio and video, along with corresponding detection techniques and malware applications. Seems like a busy two days, huh?

On the flipside, today's malware authors are using advanced techniques to keep their malware stealthy; malware like Zeus, Spyeye, and Bolware were able to bypass security controls and infect thousands of machines. If only we could more effectively detect them with automated memory forensics... wait, that's a great idea. Detecting Advanced Malware Using Volatility and R will lead you into hands-on malware analysis using Volatility and R. You'll learn how to customize both and make them work together to conduct massive, simultaneous memory analysis on thousands of machines. Watch out, malwares -- y'all just got spotted.

Have you booked your trip yet? There's still plenty of time to secure your Black Hat Asia 2015 attendance at early bird rates. It's almost like Cyber Monday never ended.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
