PAUL SEBASTIAN ZIEGLER (Independent Security Researcher)
PRESENTATION TITLE: “I Honorably Assure You: It is Secure” – Hacking in the Far East
If you want to believe popular movies or worse yet popular news, a hacker’s perfect habitat is either a riverside apartment in the tropics, an ominous apartment in Eastern Europe or an unsuspecting mother’s basement in the United States. Obviously, neither movie directors nor reporters have ever worked security in the Far East.
In this presentation, we will shine a light on how security “works” in Japan, South Korea and Hong Kong using the form of an educational best-of spanning 8 years of security research in the area. After attending, you will be able to use most of the featured techniques yourself.
This talk will cover:
- Corporate Insecurity Policy
- Not-So-Smart Cards
- Social Engineering for Natives & Foreigners
- Way Too Near Field Communication
- Planting SEEDs
- Home Security Hacking
- The “Nothing is Happening” Syndrome
and much much more!
