Talk descriptions:

Jay Harris' Talk - Software Defined Radio - Attacking wireless communication with low cost SDR:

This talk looks at the security issues associated with the type of low power wireless network technology frequently used in Internet of Things products.

Jay describe the way in which software defined radio can be used to analyse and exploit weaknesses in radio products that make no attempt to protect the over the air data.

​The talk demos reverse engineering a wireless door bell using SDR and performing replay attacks with a HackRF and a YARD Stick one.

Sharka's Talk - The Pirate Queen’s Techniques to Social Engineer Her Targets (and how you can do it too):

You can have great firewalls, IPS/IDS, have your perimeter locked down, your web applications secured but it doesn't stand a chance against social engineering tactics of Grace O'Malley; Sharka's social engineering alter ego and pirate queen from 16th century!

Sharka will describe how to use knowledge of facial expressions, body language, Chinese medicine, the whole psychology behind influence and persuasion and how to manipulate targets into believing her pretext and comply with her (evil) plans.

She will also explain what are some of the behaviours and pretexts to avoid and will step over to the defensive side as well and explain how to defend against the attacks she described.

David Boda and Francesco Cipollone from Camelot's Talk - What is the role of a security architect in a DEV(SEC)OPS - cloud world?:

The talk will narrate the evolution (joy and pain) of security architecture in a DEV(SEC)OPS world. The talk will provide some insight from architecture and higher management prospective on the journey of security in a DEV OPS world and cloud with failure, success and real world examples.
