• IPv6 Security - Scott Hogg, Global Technology Resources Inc. - Many international organizations already have IPv6 networks, the U.S. Federal organizations are working on their transitions to IPv6 and others are contemplating what IPv6 means to them. However, many organizations already have IPv6 running on their networks and they don’t even realize it. Many computer operating systems now default to running both IPv4 and IPv6 and it could cause security vulnerabilities if one is not prepared. IPv6 security vulnerabilities currently exist “in the wild” and as the popularity of the IPv6 protocol increases so will the number of threats. This talk surveys the threats against IPv6 networks and provides solutions on how to mitigate them. It covers the issues and the current practices for securing an IPv6 network.
• The Quest for Client-Side Elixir Against Zombie Browsers - Zoltan Balazs, Deloitte Hungary - In 2012, Balasz created and published proof-of-concept malicious browser extensions for Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. With these, one can steal cookies, passwords, spy on webcams, use the browser as a proxy, change financial transactions in the background, steal files, and many more malicious things. In this presentation, Balaxz will investigate the internet security suites, “safe browsers”, sandboxes and how they (don’t) protect against malicious browser extensions running in user space.
