Mario Heiderich (@0x6D6172696F)

Bio

Dr. Mario Heiderich, handsome heart-breaker, bon-vivant and (as he loves to call himself) "security researcher" is from Berlin, likes everything between lesser- and greater-than.

He leads the small yet exquisite pen-test company called Cure53 and pesters peaceful attendees on various 5th tier conferences with his hastily assembled PowerPoint-slides and a lot of FUD.

Title

An Abusive Relationship with AngularJS – About the Security Adventures with the "Super-Hero" Framework

Abstract

Some voices claim that "Angular is what HTML would have been if it had been designed for building web applications". While this statement may or may not be true, is certainly accounts as one of the bolder ones a JavaScript web framework can ever issue. And where boldness is glistening like a German Bratwurst sausage in the evening sun, a critical review from a grumpy old security person shouldn’t be too far away. This talk will have a stern, very stern look at AngularJS in particular and shed light on the security aspects of this ever-popular tool. Did the super-hero framework do everything right and follow its own super-heroic principles? Does AngularJS increase or rather decrease the attack surface of a web application? How does AngularJS play along with the Content Security Policy, and was it a good idea to combine this kind of security with futuristic feature creep? And what about AngularJS version 2.0? Beware that we won’t stop at glancing at the code itself, investigating security best practices, and verifying compatibility and other common things that contribute to robust security (or lack thereof). We will cross the moral border and see if the AngularJS team could notice rogue bug tickets. A pivotal question that everyone is wondering about is: Have they successfully kept evil minds like yours truly speaker here from introducing new security bugs into the code base? This talk is a reckoning with a modern JavaScript framework that promises a lot and keeps even more, not necessarily for the best for developers and users. We will conclude in deriving a general lesson learnt and hopefully agree that progress doesn't invariably mean an enhancement.

Unpatchable - Living with a Vulnerable Implanted Device

Abstract

My life depends on the functioning of a medical device, a pacemaker that generates each and every beat of my heart. This computer inside of me may fail due to hardware and software issues, due to misconfigurations or network-connectivity.

Yes, you read that correctly. The pacemaker has a wireless interface for remote monitoring and I am forced to become a human part of the Internet-of-Things. As a seasoned security-professional I am worried about my heart’s attack surface.

This talk will be focused on the problem that we have these life critical devices with vulnerabilities that can’t easily be patched without performing surgery on patients, my personal experience with being the host of such a device, and how the hacker community can proceed to work with the vendors to secure the devices.

Title

Your Scripts in My Page - What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Abstract

When it comes to web security, there is the one policy to rule them all: The Same-origin Policy. Thanks to this policy, sites hosted on disjunct origins are nice and cleanly separated, thus preventing the leakage of sensitive information into the hands of unauthorized parties. Unfortunately, HTML predates the Same-origin Policy and, thus, was not designed with the origin-based security model in mind. In consequence, HTML tags can freely reference cross-domain locations and include cross-domain content in their hosting web pages.

In this talk, we will present an attack, resulting from this circumstance, that has been widely overlooked in the past but affects a surprisingly high number of Web sites: Information leakage via cross-domain script inclusion.

Modern web sites frequently generate JavaScript on-the-fly via server-side scripting, incorporating personalized user data in the process. Thanks to HTML's general ignorance of the Same-origin Policy, an attacker is able to include such dynamic scripts into web pages under his control using script-tags pointing to the vulnerable site. This, in turn, allows him to learn many of the secrets contained in these scripts, through the scripts interaction with the page it is included in. In our experiments, we were able to obtain personal information such as name & address of the logged-in user, leak CSRF tokens, read the users emails, and occasionally fully compromise the user's account. All possible by simply including a script-URL into one of our web pages.

To systematically investigate the issue, we conducted a study on its prevalence in a set of 150 top-ranked domains, in which we observed that a third of the examined sites utilize dynamic JavaScript. Using our attack techniques, we able to leak sensitive data from more than 80% of these sites via remote script inclusion. In the talk we will present the study in general, and the most interesting cases in detail, showing the wide range of possible attack variations along with a bag of tricks how the including page can be prepared to efficiently leak a script's secrets. Furthermore, we present an efficient detection mechanism, in the form of a browser extension, as well as defensive measure, which enable robust protection.

Forensics - Workshop

Abstract

Rikard will guide you through the basics of a forensic investigation from acquisition to triage analysis, using open source or free tools. The workshop will be based on a scenario where we will go through the steps of an investigation from planning to report writing. The level of the workshop is aimed at an audience with limited (no) experience in forensics, but with a good understanding of computers, hardware and operating systems. After the workshop you will know how to handle the most critical part of an investigation, the acquisition, and how to proceed from there. IMPORTANT: Bring a laptop with Windows 7 installed (or a virtual host with Windows 7 on an OS of your choice). Install VMware player. Also 2 USB sticks or USB HDD 8 GB+. Optional: Bring a "Victim drive" (your spouse's, colleague's, best friend's, enemy's) to analyze.

OWASP Security Knowledge Framework

Abstract

The OWASP Security Knowledge Frwamework There are a lot of books about how to write secure code, and a lot of standards and regulations. But do they succeed in getting the developers writing more secure code? Developers are about developing, and developing means staying up to date on frameworks, tools, best practices. Just to throw a several hundred page book on their table and expect them to read it does not work. Nor does a list of several hundred items 'what to do / not to do' work. They need a way to find information agile, dynamically, to the point, addressing the problem they are dealing with at this moment. That is what the SKF does! The Security Knowledge Framework is a vital asset to the coding toolkit of you and your development team. Use SKF to learn and integrate security by design in your web application.In a nutshell: - Training developers in writing secure code - Security support pre-development (Security by design, early feedback of possible security issues - Security support post-development(Double check your code by means of the OWASP ASVS checklists) - Code examples for secure coding

During the workshop we discus the different secure code standards, tools and guides and how this knowledge comes together in the Security Knowledge Framework and how to implement the SKF in your (customers) development life-cycle.

Title

OWASP Security Shepherd - Workshop

Abstract

How do you know a web site is secure? How do you know your credentials are safe online? What makes a web site safe? Do you even know the questions to ask to help determine this? HTTPs is not the answer and trust is no longer a solution. The only way to be sure is to perform ethical hacking on the web application using a combination of manual and automated pentesting techniques. These skills are in high demand in the market place right now - but how can one get them? Well that's easy... if you take the right first step!

Join Sean Duggan for a 3 hour hands on workshop that will bring attendees up to speed on all the latest and greatest security testing techniques that are a concern in the market today. Compete against other attendees to solve increasingly complex security puzzles derived from real world security threats. Workshop attendees will leave with a real familiarity of web and mobile security testing best practice, terminology, workflows, and commonly used tool kits.

Bring an open mind and your laptop
