SAN FRANCISCO, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

WHO: Black Hat Europe--Presented by Black Hat: the world's biggest and most important family of information security events.

WHAT: International gathering of high level security researchers, practitioners, and professionals participating in a four-day multi-faceted Information Security conference. Content includes technical Trainings and Workshops along with the most relevant, detailed, and insightful security presentations of the year. All presentations are selected based upon technical merit, and focused on the sharing of practical, timely, actionable knowledge - sponsors are not granted speaking opportunities.

WHEN: March 12-15, 2013

WHERE: NH Grand Krasnapolsky Hotel in Amsterdam

HIGHLIGHTED TALKS

Militarization of Information Technology: Rick Falkvinge/ Founder of the Pirate Party presents "Shelters or Windmills: The Struggle For Power and Information Advantage": Information advantage has always been the same as power: when the ruling elite has historically lost the information advantage, they have also lost power. Therefore, that advantage has always been defended, often with violence: militarization of information technology goes back to the Roman civilization. By learning from history, we get blueprints of the successful battle plans, as well as an understanding of where we are in this particular cycle of history.

Medical Device Security: Jay Radcliffe/ Senior Security Analyst for InGuardians presents "Building a Defensive Framework for Medical Device Security": In the past 18 months we have seen a dramatic increase in research and presentations on the security of medical devices. While this has been exciting and brought much needed attention to the issue, little has been done to help with the defense of these devices. This presentation will focus on what can be done by regulatory agencies to bolster the defense of medical devices as well as what the community should focus on going forward in research.

Hacking Traffic: Tobias Jeske/a security researcher at the Institute for Security in Distributed Applications at Hamburg University of Technology presents "Floating Car Data from Smartphones: What Google and Waze Know About You and How Hackers Can Control Traffic": To which extent it is possible for Google and Waze to track the smartphone and its owner? Jeske will uncover a big privacy issue and examine whether the authenticity of traffic data can be guaranteed while demonstrating how hackers can take control of navigation systems and, in the case of a wide distribution of floating car data, can actively control the traffic flow.

Gaming Insecurity: Donato Ferrante and Luigi Auriemma/ Co-Founders and Security Researchers at ReVuln Ltd. present "Multiplayer Online Games Insecurity": This talk details the current status of games security, describing game-specific issues and how to find vulnerabilities in games, disclosing a new 0-day vulnerability affecting a well-known multiplayer game.

Hacking Luxury Cars: Robert Leale/ CanBusHack leads a Vehicle Networks Workshop that will show some of the possible exploits common to these networking systems. Today's vehicles have multiple control modules that are linked via various types of networks. These networks have become pervasive and remain somewhat of an unknown in millions of vehicles on the road today.
