The Ways Hackers Are Taking To Win The Mobile Malware Battle

In the proverbial game of cat-and-mouse between endpoint security vendors and malware writers, malware attacks have recently grown more sophisticated. More enterprises are losing ground to hackers, who are able to outmaneuver static and runtime solutions by constantly changing their attack strategies. The team that uncovered iOS malicious profiles, WiFiGate, HTTP Request Hijacking, No iOS Zone and Invisible Profiles are taking it upon themselves to coach developers and organizations on how to regain control, and turn the tables on the hackers behind next-generation mobile malware. 


In his presentation, Yair will discuss cutting-edge techniques used by malware writers to circumvent mobile security paradigms such as app-sandboxing and containers. Mr. Amit will then break down the current set of techniques (signatures, static analysis & dynamic analysis) used to identify malware on mobile devices, and identify the pros and cons of these approaches. He will also explain why attackers constantly succeed in fooling these technologies, and explore the problem of false positive/false negative tradeoffs in such solutions. 

During a live, interactive demo, Yair will create a mobile malware on stage, meant to be undetected by static and runtime analysis technologies.

Continuous Integration: Live Static Analysis using Visual Studio & the Roslyn API
For over 10 years, Visual Studio has provided basic source code analysis through FxCop and StyleCop. While these code analyzers focus mainly on design conformance, code consistency, and best practices, there is very little support for enforcing secure coding techniques. To address this gap, Microsoft started a project back in 2011 called CAT.NET to help identify secure coding bugs such as XSS, SQL Injection, and XPath Injection. Unfortunately, CAT.NET failed and never made it past the first version. Aside from purchasing expensive commercial static analysis tools, .NET development teams have been left without an easy way to integrate secure code scanning rules into Visual Studio. At least until now...

With the release of Visual Studio 2015, the open-source .NET Compiler Platform (aka “Roslyn”) exposes a set of code analysis APIs capable of querying the source code, identifying a security issue, and reporting it as code is written! In this talk, we will explore the code analysis APIs and show you how to create a live static analysis rule. Come prepared to see demonstrations of Visual Studio static analysis rules in action, and walk away with a static analysis rule pack to run against your organization’s .NET applications.

Everything is Terrible: Three Perspectives on Building, Configuring, and Securing Software
Developers, operations, and security all have differing agendas and benchmarks for success. One is tasked with building new features, the next with delivering and making them available, and the third is tasked with mitigating the risks associated with the previous two.

Core to the DevOps movement is the idea of building empathy with people in other teams in order to align for business success. Providing the perspectives from three engineers who have each lived primarily in one of Dev, Ops, or Security, but have also worked collaboratively to try not to kill each other. They will talk about their backgrounds, provide practical examples from daily experiences, and share suggestions on building common tooling that minimizes friction and enhances collaboration.

This talk will discuss
- The misalignment of priorities that organisations often force upon these groups
- Struggles with collaboration and working cultures
- Common bottlenecks associated with release cycles and security processes
- Building empathy and optimizing for communication that doesn't involve fisticuffs (or other 19th century combat styles)

The audience will come away with:
- Ideas for handling these complicated situations
- Approaches for building workflows and possible tooling suggestions to minimize the tire fires
- A new appreciation for those on the other sides of the silo walls

Practical Static Analysis for Continuous Application Security
Static code analysis tools that attempt determine what code does without actually running the code provide an excellent opportunity to perform lightweight security checks as part of the software development lifecycle. Unfortunately, building generic static analysis tools, especially for security, is a costly, time-consuming effort. As a result very few tools exist and commercial tools are very expensive - if they even support your programming language.

The good news is building targeted static analysis tools for your own environment with rules specific to your needs is much easier! Since static analysis tools can be run at any point in the software development lifecycle, even simple tools enable powerful security assurance when added to continuous integration. This talk will go through straight-forward options for static analysis, from grep to writing rules for existing tools through writing static analysis tools from scratch.

SPArring with the Security of Single Page Applications
SPArring with the Security of Single Page Applications

When SPArring with the security of a Single Page Application (SPA) you need to be like a Mixed Martial Artist (MMA) fighter who understands several specialties to be successful.

In MMA, a fighter needs to be skilled in several martial arts styles, such as boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai for the stand up portion of the fight. Then, he needs to know wrestling or judo to take the fight to the ground, and once he’s on the ground, he needs to know Jujitsu and Sambo to submit his opponent. 

When doing battle with a SPA, a pen-tester must become an MMA hacker…A Mixed Multilayer Application Hacker. As an MMA Hacker, you need to understand the multitude of complex application layers that are only getting more complex and interconnected by the day.

This discussion will include MMA Hacker training on the following application layers:
Interface layer: Become familiar with SPA frameworks (AngularJS, ReactJS). These SPA frameworks fundamentally change the browser communication that security experts have long understood. 
Backend layer: Dig into different REST API’s and learn how they are used and where to find the weaknesses.
Network layer: Learn more about WebSockets and how they fundamentally change TCP/HTTP as you have always known it to be.
Interconnectivity layer: Get to know how SPA’s are often interconnected with 3rd party API’s or presentation elements and how this can create security issues that get inherited from trusting the 3rd party.
Tools: Understand what tools are available to help you address these challenges, and the potential gaps exist in the tools we all depend on.

Join this talk to start your MMA Hacker training today!

Your License for Bug Hunting Season
You don’t need a license for bug hunting season anymore. Bug bounty programs are becoming well established as a valuable tool in identifying vulnerabilities early. The Department of Defense has authorized its first bug bounty program, and many vendors are taking a fresh look. While the programs are highly effective, many questions remain about how to structure bug bounty programs to address the concerns that vendors and researchers have about controlling bug hunters, security and privacy, contractual issues with bug hunters, what happens if there is a rogue hacker in the crowd, and liability and compliance concerns. This presentation will cover the best practices for structuring effective bug bounty programs.

Using language-theoretics and runtime visibility to align AppSec with DevOps
Programming languages are becoming more powerful and capable, and applications more porous than ever before -- burdening developers and security professionals alike. Evolving constraints, patterns and definition lists make validating data inputs and preventing injections while maintaining application performance unwieldy and difficult. Nobody wants vulnerabilities in their code, but with the rise of Agile DevOps, security is usually playing catch-up. 

A new breed of embedded runtime security tools coined Runtime Application Self-Protection (RASP) are enabling developers and security admins to see beyond potential vulnerabilities and identify the actual attacks that are hitting their applications in production. RASP comes in several shapes and sizes, and this talk is designed to introduce the audience to the RASP implementation based on the LANGSEC methodology and its mission to align Security and DevOps – giving both teams the visibility and automation they need to work in synchrony.

LANGSEC has been a promising yet heady topic on the fringes of AppSec for several years, and its ready for a mainstream debut. LANGSEC attempts to use the grammar and linguistic constructs of the programming language itself to solve vulnerability classes that arise from user input unintentionally changing the expected behavior of an application (XSS, SQLi, command injection, CSRF, format string, stack / heap overflow, file inclusion). 

This session will begin by pointing out the flaws and limitations of any application security model that is dependent on traditional techniques that rely on signatures, definitions, pattern-matching, regular expressions or taint analysis. Once solely the obscure domain of compiler geeks, Language Security, a.k.a. LANGSEC, is a completely different approach and has gained a lot of traction as a much more robust approach to securing and releasing applications more quickly and easily.

Cleaning Your Applications' Dirty Laundry with Scumblr
Like many cutting-edge companies, the environment at Netflix is constantly changing. New applications are deployed everyday, code is pushed every hour, and systems are spun-up and down at will to support changing demand patterns of online video streaming. This, combined with Netflix's 100% cloud model, provides significant challenges in understanding our assets, the risk they pose, and the vulnerabilities they expose.

In order to help address these issues we developed and released an open-source tool call Scumblr in 2014. Scumblr was initially focused on the outside--find interesting intelligence from the Internet and bring it to our attention. Internally at Netflix, however, we've set our sights on new challenges and have found new and innovative ways to use the Scumblr platform to make an AppSec engineer's life a little bit easier. Through a series of small tweaks as well as larger architectural changes, Scumblr has become a versatile tool that allows us to track a wide range of information including changes to endpoints on netflix.com, risk profiles for each application in our environment, and the status of vulnerabilities across a thousands of applications. We've made changes to Scumblr to make it faster, more flexible, and more powerful and we're ready to share these changes with the open source community.

Attendees of this talk will get an understanding for how we designed a tool that has been successful in tackling a broad range of security challenges. We'll share our latest uses for the tools include details on how we're using Scumblr for vulnerability management, application risk tracking and other uses. Finally, we'll discuss how you can replicate what we've done by sharing new plugins that integrate with Arachni, AppSpider, Github, while also showing just how easy it is to create new integrations that open up new opportunities for automation, data collection and analysis.

Should there be an Underwriters Laboratories certification for software in IoT products?
The US Cybersecurity National Action Plan released in February 2016 announced that the US government, specifically the Department of Homeland Security, is collaborating with the Underwriters Laboratories and industry partners to develop a Cybersecurity Assurance Program that would test and certify the security of devices that are part of the Internet of Things (IoT), such as infusion pumps and refrigerators. One of the goals is to ensure that software embedded in these devices is free of vulnerabilities that could be exploited. 

UL certification of software within products is a controversial topic. Proponents point to CyberUL certification as a means of assuring that IoT products meet acceptable standards such as owner-unique passwords, automated software and firmware updates, and IoT product software that is free of SQL injection and Cross Site Scripting flaws. Proponents also see the CyberUL as a proactive measure to provide security safeguards for the vastly expanding digital infrastructure. Opponents point out that it is a major investment in a solution that addresses less than 0.1% of real-world attacks; many would rather see the investment in CyberUL transferred to fixing the problems that account for most attacks, such as unpatched software, bad passwords and users succumbing to phishing. Opponents also say that the cost associated with getting CyberUL certification can create a barrier to the introduction of innovative products.

This panel will discuss the pros and cons of the Cyber Assurance Program’s pursuit of a CyberUL certification and the impact it may have on the application security community. It will appeal to conference attendees who are interested in how policy affects technology, builders of new technologies that are targets for CyberUL certification, and breakers who may see the CyberUL as either an opportunity or a challenge to overcome.

Threat Modeling with Architectural Risk Patterns
Current approaches to Threat Modeling emphasise manual analysis typically performed by developers together with a security specialist.  This has a high initial cost, both in terms of time and the skills required to perform it.  Both of those constraints are under pressure as organisations increase the speed and volume of software development.  In enterprise environments there is the additional challenge of scaling this activity across thousands of products with a limited number of software security specialists to guide the process.  Lack of necessary security skills is also a reason that many smaller companies never attempt threat modeling in the first place.
This talk will present a software-centric method of threat modeling that uses risk patterns to increase the speed of creating a threat model and that also introduces a degree of consistency into the process.  We’ll present a series of incremental improvements to the use of risk patterns from a simple checklist based approach to the use of a flexible rules engine.

 

This method could be implemented by tooling to automatically generate a threat model based on architectural decisions.  The technique employs principals from Object Oriented software design such as inheritance and method overloading so that the contents of the patterns can be practically maintained and extended without unnecessary repetition.  Organisations can use this method to extract the expertise from their software security experts so that threat modeling knowledge is retained and can be re-used within the organisation.

HTTPS & TLS in 2016: Security practices from the front lines
Implementing strong security for Internet‐facing services has grown more challenging and more complex over the past two years. With protocol‐level vulnerabilities like FREAK, BEAST, CRIME, POODLE, & LOGJAM, Ops teams are forced to reevaluate long‐held assumptions about foundation system network code. What are the right tradeoffs between modern network security requirements versus widespread legacy client and user interoperability? How do we apply these to traditional Apache and Nginx servers, mobile app web services, and non‐browser infrastructure like libcurl, proxies, API endpoints, and load balancers? And what's the deal with Curve25519, ChaCha/Poly1305, LibSodium, BoringSSL, and LibreSSL?
Here, we present a practitioner's crash guide to modern site and web service endpoint encryption using HTTPS. We cover the "TLS 101" (and 201) fundamentals of certificates: ECDSA vs RSA, 2K vs 4K, ephemeral Diffie‐ Hellman (elliptic curve versus static), Domain Validation vs Extended Validation. We'll talk about intermediate and root authorities (and why Superfish is such a problem), and then look at some best practices around https including certificate transparency (CT), pinning (HPKP), and strict transport security (HSTS). Lastly, we'll give updates from the OpenSSL 1.1 audit, and point to well curated configuration guides and recipes for https and TLS.

When encryption is not enough: Attacking Wearable - Mobile Application communication over BLE
Communication protocols have evolved from the traditional Serial and LAN ports to complex and lightweight protocols of today, such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), ANT+ and ZigBee. Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is a popular protocol of choice for wearables which are low energy, low performance computing systems. The BLE standard specification provides for a variety of security mechanisms for channel encryption to protect data against snooping and man-in-the-middle style attacks.

In our presentation, we talk about the security assumptions made by popular mobile operating systems when they adopt the BLE specification and how this impacts their communication with wearable devices. We include vulnerability case studies to discuss how rogue mobile applications can use the same set of BLE encryption keys as the legitimate companion application, and get access to personal information or cause denial of service conditions on the wearables. We will discuss the insufficiencies of the protocols and the need for extra measures if the use cases demand confidentiality and integrity of data in transit.

We will present high level flows to correctly design secure communication channels between a phone application and the wearable device.

Protect Containerized Applications With System Call Profiling
Container technologies like Docker are gaining mainstream interest from development and operations teams. Unlike virtual machines, containers running on the same host share the underlying OS kernel. As such, a malicious container can influence the execution of other containers through the common kernel by either exploiting a kernel vulnerability or simply leveraging the privileges of the compromised container. In this talk we describe an approach to harden and isolate containerized applications via system call profiling. We show that one can develop accurate system call profiles via static analysis of the container images and knowledge of the host system. Using this profile in runtime, one can monitor for and protect against malicious behavior that deviates from the profile. We show that one can build these profiles automatically from analyzing information within the container image and Dockerfiles. We show that runtime profiling and monitoring adds approximately 5-8% performance overhead for running applications. We demonstrate system call profiling on a sample micro-service application and show that it is a non-intrusive and effective method to detect behavioral anomalies with low false positives.

Why using SMS in the authentication chain is risky and what better options are available
Passwords are horrible for security. Over the past 20 years we’ve bolstered the password with other factors, the most common being a one time password (OTP, TOTP, HOTP) that is either generated on a physical device the user holds, in a smartphone app or most commonly sent via SMS. Using SMS for authentication is not secure. We’ve known this for years, but recently we’ve been reminded of this with problems with Google and Apple SMS security. 

SMS is important to ensure we have a backup way of allowing people to login to systems, but it should always be a last resort. So what’s the first resort? Second factors to the password need a different communications channel to the one a user is authenticating to. SMS is not secure, but push notification methods are. It is possible to initiate a communication channel via Apple, Google and Microsoft mobile notification networks. At the end of these push notifications is a secured app that in turn securely communicates with the 2FA back end. Not only is this method more secure, it’s actually a far improved user experience that can be extended beyond the login to secure in application transactions.

This presentation will go over the limitations of traditional two-factor methods and introduce the improved approach using a push notification channel to achieve the same goal, i.e. authenticate a user identity by validating the initiating request comes from a person who has something in their possession which is trusted.

Exploiting CORS Misconfigurations for Bitcoins and Bounties
Hear the story of how a specification’s innocent intentions toward security and simplicity mingled with Real World Code and ultimately spawned hosts of unfortunately exploitable systems.

Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) is a mechanism for relaxing the Same Origin Policy to enable communication between websites via browsers. It’s already widely understood that certain CORS configurations are dangerous. In this presentation, I'll skim over the old knowledge then coax out and share with you an array of under-appreciated but dangerous subtleties and implications buried in the CORS specification. I'll illustrate each of these with recent attacks on real websites, showing how I could have used them to steal bitcoins from two different exchanges, partially bypass Google's use of HTTPS, and requisition API keys from numerous others. I'll also show how CORS blunders can provide an invaluable link in crafting exploit chains to pivot across protocols, exploit the unexploitable via server and client-side cache poisoning, and even escalate certain open redirects into vulnerabilities that are actually notable.

In between looking at websites with harmful misconfigurations that range from depressingly predictable to utterly unfathomable, I'll reflect on where the CORS specification and implementations collaborated to save developers from themselves, and where the good intentions didn't work out so well. From this, I’ll propose several potential solutions and mitigations aimed at specification authors, browser vendors, developers and pentesters with varying degrees of optimism.

Patterns of Authentication and Self-Announcement in the Internet of Things (IoT)
The need to connect ‘things’ to each other in the IoT ecosystem introduces new security requirements for authentication and self-announcement due to four major characteristics of IoT
1. Physical access and infinite time available to adversaries to take apart devices 
2. Lower computation power of standalone devices 
3. Unforeseen and emergent behavior of the system if arbitrary nodes are compromised 
4. Endless possibility of privacy intrusion based on data intelligence and indirect identity inference. 
In this work the IoT systems are modelled using a number of elements: person, machine/device, service, server, client (esp. mobile), and passive marker. New authentication scenarios emerge when these items introduce themselves to each other on trusted or untrusted networks. The majority of authentication and self-announcement needs could be modelled using the above elements. For major authentication and self-announcement scenarios, possible authentication patterns are presented. Here are four examples of how these patterns apply to sample IoT scenarios: 
• Home automation as enabled by NEST devices
• Device collaboration in Zigbee-based networks
• Smart inventory management using NFC/RFID
• Remote device control based on XMPP (SASL authentication)
The minimum computation power (capability to perform cryptographic operations) and privacy preserving considerations are analyzed in each case.

Practical tips for web application security in the age of agile and DevOps
The SDLC has been the standard model for web application security over the last decade and beyond, focussing heavily on gatekeeping controls like static analysis and dynamic scanning. However, the SDLC was originally designed in a world of Waterfall development and its heavy weight controls often cause more problems than they solve in todays world of agile, DevOps, and CI/CD. 

This talk will share practical lessons learned on the most effective application security techniques in todays increasingly rapid world of application creation and delivery. Specifically, it will cover how to: 
1) Adapt traditionally heavyweight controls like static analysis and dynamic scanning to lightweight efforts that work in modern development and deployment practices
2) Obtain visibility to enable, rather than hinder, development and DevOps teams ability to iterate quickly 
3) Measure maturity of your organizations security efforts in a non-theoretical way

Automating API Penetration Testing using fuzzapi

Despite the widespread use of REST API calls using various frameworks, security researchers continue to discover many vulnerabilities in APIs. Vulnerabilities are frequently found in the APIs of applications produced by even the most mature development teams – which include internet giants Facebook, Google and Microsoft etc.

Where do the developers fail? After studying several API vulnerabilities across the internet, the main problem our team has identified is that developers often have little understanding of how to write or implement secure REST APIs. Most fail while trying to solve the complexity of writing APIs for web and mobile platforms simultaneously. Another significant problem the team has identified is that most DevOp engineers and Penetration testers have no standard platform that provides coverage of common vulnerabilities typically found in APIs. It has been a challenge for penetration testers to practice security testing on APIs across multiple platforms in the absence of such vulnerable applications.


Our project is trying to address this problem for the broader community by developing a platform to better understand and practice testing for the most common API vulnerabilities. Rather than a tool that only identifies vulnerabilities in web services, we have built a platform that enables everyone to test and understand a large range of API vulnerabilities that exist in both web and mobile applications. 


As part of this presentation, our team will release an API Fuzzer as an OWASP Project to help developers test the APIs they develop during the early stages of the SDLC. The tool can be integrated into the build pipeline to allow developers to identify vulnerabilities prior to Pen Testing. Also, Pen testers can also use this tool against various APIs during their testing which will allow them to automate few tasks.

Needle: Finding Issues within iOS Applications
Assessing the security of an iOS application typically requires a plethora of tools, each developed for a specific need and all with different modes of operation and syntax. The Android ecosystem has tools like "drozer" that have solved this problem and aim to be a ‘one stop shop’ for the majority of use cases, however iOS does not have an equivalent.

"Needle" is an open source modular framework which aims to streamline the entire process of conducting security assessments of iOS applications, and acts as a central point from which to do so. Given its modular approach, Needle is easily extensible and new modules can be added in the form of python scripts. Needle is intended to be useful not only for security professionals, but also for developers looking to secure their code. A few examples of testing areas covered by Needle include: data storage, inter-process communication, network communications, static code analysis, hooking and binary protections.​ The only requirement in order to run Needle effectively is a jailbroken device.

We will be describing the tool's architecture, capabilities and roadmap. We will also demonstrate how Needle can be used to find vulnerabilities in iOS applications from both a black-box and white-box perspective (if source code is provided).

Misconfigured CORS and why web application security is not getting easier.
Web Application Security is actually really hard to enter into the "big-leagues" with a mature security program like facebook, google, and the like. These orgs are very mature and oftentimes roll out the newest, lastest, greatest security features.

Part of entering in to the big leagues usually requires the implementation of advanced browser security features and HTTP Response headers.

I want to tell a personal story about finding a massive vulnerability in about 1000 out of the Alexa top 1million sites that caused sites to basically turn off SAMEORIGIN policy. 
- How I thought to try my exploit
- Who was vulnerable
- Details of the exploit

I want to talk about the difficultly understanding the details of the CORS headers that caused the issue. Lots of things to understand.

I want to then talk about individual security technologies and their operational issues associated with them.
- CSP
- HPKP
- HSTS
- SRI
- CORS etc etc etc.

There's a lot of operational issues to cover.

Finally I want to make a plea to stick to the basics before you try to roll these things out. Most sites don't get any utility from these features and they only cause problems.

Scaling Security Assessment at the Speed of DevOps
Scaling Security Testing at the Speed of DevOps

Recent software development trends, namely DevOps, Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, and Continuous Deployment, have empowered developers and drastically reduced the DevTest window forcing teams to adopt highly automated test infrastructures. While the adoption of these trends and automated test frameworks have improved feature delivery and time to market, they have complicated security assessment, producing substantial gaps between the current release and the last security audited code. Consumers are now being forced to
adopt new code releases daily or hourly without substantive security review, especially in the Software as a Service (SaaS) sector. As engineering teams rapidly embrace these development methodologies, the community must evolve security testing strategies so as to enhance the security posture of products, services, and solutions.

This evolution must address three primary problems elucidated by the
aforementioned development trends:

1. Testability: Security requirements should be testable and verifiable.
2. Scalability: Security requirement should be capable of being
automated in a best-effort fashion so as to scale effectively.
3. Accessibility: Security tools and results should be easily digestible
by software engineers and testers, and new security tools should be
accessible to all development and test engineers.

Therefore, we have developed and are preparing to open source a new distributed security testing framework called Norad which facilitates security assessment at scale. This framework automates multiple open-source and vendor security tools and aggregates their results for review. It also provides an SDK which promotes the development of community developed security test content. This talk will explain Norad's design philosophy, architecture, and demonstrate its usage.

Breaking and Fixing your ‘Docker’ ized environments
This presentation extracts few points from CIS Docker 1.12 benchmark which was co-authored by me. Ref: https://benchmarks.cisecurity.org/downloads/show-single/index.cfm?file=docker12.100

Abstract: The concept of containerization was in Linux from ages in the form of jails, zones, LXC etc. but it is since 2 years it gained tremendous recognition. The credit goes to "Docker" which made the concept of containerization very useful and handy by adding many benefits to existing container technologies. Tech giants like Redhat, Google, IBM, VMware etc. are not only the biggest contributors to this most active open source project but also major users of it. Only Google spins up more than 2 billion containers per week, more than 3,300 containers per second. Inspired from Docker, Microsoft also started its container technology by extending its research project "Drawbridge". The effect of containers already impacted the virtual machine market and this impact is going to increase significantly in near future.

Security is always an important issue for any upcoming technology and Docker is no exception to it. This presentation starts with a brief introduction to containers vs. virtualization technology, Docker ecosystem and then goes deep into "Docker Security". It touches each and every component listed below in the Docker container pipeline and gives details about the ways on how they can be broken and then defensive measures to secure them.

Container Pipeline Components:
a) Images
b) Container Runtime
c) Host security
d) Daemon security
e) Communication security ( daemon <=> client , daemon to registry etc.) f) Registry security Below is the brief overview only on Images, containers components.

1. Images
a. Image security analysis in which I have extracted more than 50 Docker hub images (which also includes official images) and found critical vulnerabilities like Heartbleed, Shellshock, CSRF, XSS etc. in them. The presentation also provides a comprehensive security analysis on Docker hub images , how vulnerable are they and gives details about alternative options available for getting secure images
b. Protecting images
- Efficient scanning : binary level scanning, hash based comparison instead of version string matching mechanisms
- Docker Content Trust: Ensures authenticity, integrity and freshness guarantees (Is this really secure to use?)
- 20 golden rules to be followed for "writing Dockerfiles and maintaining images" securely

2. Containers
a. Detailed explanation about how containers isolation can be torn apart
b. Docker claims that their containers are "Secure by Default" and also a popular report on Linux containers released by NCC Group states that "Docker has strong defaults". In this presentation, I will be proving that Docker defaults are vulnerable to DOS, side channel, remote exploitation etc. vulnerabilities. Besides, I will also be explaining about a few other ways of exploiting Docker containers if CIS Docker bechmark rules were not adhered
c. 20 golden rules to be followed for ensuring secure container runtime

Apart from the topics mentioned above, this presentation also throws a light on the tools available in market for securing container ecosystem along with the pros and cons of each tool : Twistlock, Aquasec, Nautilus etc.

Containerizing your Security Operations Center
As security professionals, we have no shortage of tools available to us in our offensive and defensive pursuits. How we choose to deploy, maintain, and share these tools across teams can prove to be burdensome and overly complex. Security teams are becoming swept up in the DevOps movement and we are being encouraged to bring visibility into our workflows and toolsets. This means moving things from our local boxes to a more available and collaborative environment. This talk will share lessons learned from building a pluggable, cloud­based "Security Operations Center" running entirely on containers to help security teams rapidly build out scanning pipelines, centralize alerts, investigate malware, and easily collaborate with teams across the organization. I’ll dive into the architecture and design of the cluster and how to quickly get a POC running in Kubernetes
