To give some overview, on the first day we will start with a talk about SSL/TLS and backwards compatibility issues by Prof. Schwenk. He will give a high-level overview on the newest protocol version (1.3), and what can go wrong if you run this version in parallel with its predecessors (TLS 1.0 - 1.2).
Mario Heiderich, handsome heart-breaker and security researcher, will talk about his Relationship with AngularJS v2. The first version of this talk contained many AngularJS bypasses. We hope to see many more at our conference.
Johannes Dahse will present his tool for Detection of Complex Vulnerabilities in Web Applications. As the talk is complex, I do not even attempt to summarize this topic. It is however interesting to know that this work was awarded with the first Facebook Internet Defense Prize.
As there is no security conference without cats, RuhrSec will include two talks about these adorable animals. Martin Johns will talk about cats attacking WebRTC Communication. Marion Marschalek will talk about Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and about Cheshire Cat's Grin.
An IT buzzword coming more and more often at security conferences is IoT (I think this buzzword can currently be beaten only by SCADA). Therefore, Timo Kasper will present Security Nightmares in the Internet of Things: Electronic Locks and More. Do not worry that this will be only some boring "blah-blah" talk. Timo gives excellent research talks, he is known for example for his attacks on KeeLoq (technology used in garage doors):
You are still not impressed? There is more. At the end of the first day, just before a great dinner by G Data, Udo will give a workshop / InfoSec course on drinking wine, coffee and beer. I think this will be a highlight of the conference.
For further information, please see our program. This will include further talks by Felix 'FX' Lindner, Thorsten Holz, Marco Balduzzi, Mathias Bynens, Lucas Vincenzo Davi and Sebastian Schinzel.
