Tech Talk Series: Rogue Device Attacks & Mitigation

Date: January 15th, 2020 from 10 - 12pm | Location: DreamPort Facility in Columbia MD


Abstract

The CIS (Center for Internet Security) Critical Controls, prioritize the visibility of hardware assets as a critical cyber control. The lack of available and efficient security solutions for mitigating rogue hardware devices is leveraged by bad actors and is being used to steal information, manipulate data and interruption of the normal operation of critical infrastructure. Like everything else in Security, it starts with gaining a full visibility but the commonly used discovery methods, mostly based on mapping network addresses, IP addresses and other logical entities, such as protocols and applications, lack in their ability to discovery "transparent" hardware devices, hidden rogue implants and man-in-the-middle attack (MITM) tools. WHY? Because these attack tools have no address and do not generate noticeable logical data. In the session, we will cover the attack deliver methods, attack scenarios, weaknesses of commonly used security tools and ways to mitigate the threat.
