Kudelski Security to Present on Automated Testing of Crypto Software at Black Hat USA 2017

Principal Security Engineer Jean-Philippe Aumasson and Research Engineer Yolan Romailler to Present a New Approach to Testing Cryptographic Software at Black Hat USA, BSides LV and DEF CON 25

CHESEAUX-SUR-LAUSANNE, Switzerland and PHOENIX, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Kudelski Security, the cybersecurity division within the Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) and trusted innovator for the world's most security-conscious organizations, today announced that Jean-Philippe Aumasson, principal security engineer and Yolan Romailler, research engineer, will contribute their industry expertise in a session titled "Automated Testing of Crypto Software Using Differential Fuzzing." The presentation takes place on Wednesday, July 26th in Las Vegas, Nevada at 2:40 pm PT at Black Hat USA 2017, again at 5:00 pm PT at BSides LV and a third time on Saturday, July 29th at 5:30 pm PT at DEF CON 25.

Experts from Kudelski Security will also dive into topics such as cloud security and orchestration, managed attacker deception, advanced threat intelligence, designing IoT security and cryptography during a series of Debriefing Sessions hosted at the Four Seasons Hotel.

Aumasson and Romailler's presentation will focus on a new and efficient approach to systematic testing of cryptographic software: differential fuzzing. Unlike general purpose software fuzzing such as afl, differential fuzzing doesn't aim to find memory corruption bugs (although they might come as a by-product), but to find logic bugs. Compared to test vectors, differential fuzzing provides greater code coverage and compared to formal verification, differential fuzzing is easier to apply, both for testers and developers. Aumasson and Romailler will present this session at both Black Hat and BSides LV. Romailler will also present it at Crypto & Privacy Village within DEF CON 25.

While at Black Hat 2017, Kudelski Security will also be hosting a Crypto Challenge, a series of after show Debriefs Sessions and a party at the House of Blues' Foundation Room within Mandalay Bay. Details include:

  • Crypto Challenge: For Black Hat, Kudelski Security launched a new crypto challenge which started on July 6th and ends on July 25th at the House of Blues party.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated. But… securing CICD best practices is an emerging, essential, yet little understood practice for DevOps teams and their Cloud Service Providers. The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
