Security Innovation’s Principal Scientist, Jonathan Petit will be leading a seminar entitled Self-Driving and Connected Cars: Fooling Sensors and Tracking Drivers. This session will focus on the security of autonomous vehicles and the privacy of connected vehicles, and will feature Petit’s own research and recent public hack on an autonomous vehicle. In an experiment conducted at the University of Twente in The Netherlands, Petit was able to fool a self-driving car into thinking there were other cars and pedestrians around it, stopping the vehicle in its tracks. This was achieved with $60 worth of equipment bought over the counter.

“Security should be present at all layers and that’s why this talk will span from hardware security to privacy of V2X communication,” said Petit. “Despite my active participation in automotive consortium and standardization, I felt it was important for automakers and consumers alike to be made aware of the security and privacy risks of these poorly implemented systems.”

Prior to joining Security Innovation, Petit was a Research Fellow in the Computer Security Group and The Mobile & Internet Systems Laboratory at University College Cork, Ireland. He coordinated the European funded FP7 PRESERVE project and holds a PhD and M.Sc. degree from Paul Sabatier University, Toulouse, France.

In addition to Petit’s seminar, Security Innovation Senior Security Engineer Dinesh Shetty will be presenting at Arsenal, Black Hat’s interactive demo area. Shetty will be introducing InsecureBank, his custom-built, intentionally vulnerable Android application. Shetty will also be discussing source code review tools, defensive coding techniques and will invite attendees to hack his application. Of his InsecureBank app, Shetty said:

“This is a major update to my previous version of InsecureBank, now including a completely updated user interface, an improved exception handling mechanism, and we’ve added a root detection mechanism. This application was created for security enthusiasts and developers to learn the Android insecurities by testing this vulnerable application.”

In addition to his work at Security Innovation, Shetty is an accomplished author and speaker, whose research has been published in many industry outlets including: Packet Storm, Exploit-DB, PenTest Magazine, SecurityXploded, ClubHACK Magazine, and Exploit-Id. He is also a Hall of Fame member of Apple, Adobe and Barracuda Networks for his identification and responsible disclosure of critical security vulnerabilities in their products and Web applications.

Mavenir Announces Virtualized Media Breakout Controller, Bringing 5G Edge Architectures to Legacy Networks17.1.2018 14:00Pressemelding

Mavenir, focused on transforming mobile network economics for Communications Service Providers, today announced its virtualized Media Breakout Controller (vMBC), a single white box routing platform that enables carriers to host virtual Routing, Firewall, and User plane data offload. Today’s networks, whether 3G, 4G or 5G, are under pressure to provide increased bandwidth in support of LTE and its frequency combinations, and reduce latency for network interaction, resulting in a continual need to increase capacity for traffic transported through the core of the network. Multi-Access Edge Computing standardization (MEC) is trying to resolve some of these issues by placing compute functionality at the edge but it is still mostly controlled from the core, based on conventional centralized architectures. The ability to scale network functionality using virtual elements and COTS HW platforms allows network functionality to be deployed at any location. Mavenir’s innovative solution offers the
