In earlier posts, we brought you details of the Mobility Briefings and Microsoft Briefings taking place at this year’s hacker gathering. Well now it’s time to turn our attention to the IoT (Internet of Things); these sessions will surely not disappoint.
The Black Hat Briefings cover other topics including critical infrastructure security; enterprise systems and datacenter technologies; vulnerabilities targeting nearly every platform, operating system, and device imaginable; and the latest in research and development — chances are, there’s something here you haven’t thought about yet. If you have — I’ll eat my hat, even if it isn’t black!
Experts and industry crusaders will speak openly about IoT, among other topics, outlining problems affecting, and solutions available for, threats faced by all exposed sectors.
Here in this allocated section. the topics covered will range from Industrial Security and Smart Grid to Development Lifecycle and Network Defence. Assigned speakers will delve into how medical devices and hospitals are attacked. They’ll also dissect how, without the essential substrate DNS, it would be an impossible mission to navigate the internet… what would we all do then? The mind boggles.
