Alise Silde, Accenture Latvia, Application Security Lead

Honeypots: Setting the Perfect Trap (EN)

If you have ever looked at logs of a machine left open to the world-wide networks you know that hacking attempts are highly frequent. Most of these are not sophisticated - portscans and credential bruteforce attempts dominate the lot, as it is something that can be easily automated and applied to large blocks of public addresses. Such techniques, commonly used for initial system compromise, do not seem to change much over time, but what happens if a probe succeeds and provides an attacker with access to the system? You would not want to find out from your own experience.
Honeypots are one of the few ways to study attacker behaviour on a compromised system. This talk will introduce this concept, contemplate potential uses is defensive and offensive security, as well as provide some guidance for designing and configuring your own honeypot.

Alise comes from an academic background in Computer Security and Forensics, and has been involved in penetration testing (a.k.a. offensive security) ever since graduation. She is now the application security lead at Accenture Latvia with vast and varied experience in security of a wide range of systems and technologies, as well as a keen interest in software development, security research and security education/training.

Brad Bigelow, Principal Technical Advisor to the Deputy Chief of Staff, Communications, Information Systems and Cyber Defence, Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE)

The Military Role in Cyberspace (EN)

At the Warsaw Summit in July 2016, the NATO Heads of States and Governments agreed to recognize cyberspace as a domain of military operations and tasked the NATO Strategic Commands to develop a roadmap to establish NATO's operational capability in this new domain. In July 2018, the Allies agreed to establish a Cyberspace Operations Centre (CyOC) at SHAPE to plan and coordinate NATO military operations in cyberspace. The CyOC team is now working on how best to address Alliance operational and collective defence concerns. Some aspects of cyberspace capabilities fit well within the framework of existing NATO forces and doctrine; some can be addressed but require new doctrines and forces; and some are better addressed through other means--such as civil and commercial CERTs, for example. This talk will offer a candid view of NATO is dealing with the challenges of this new domain.

Brad Bigelow spent 25 years as a US Air Force officer planning, building, and operating networks, information systems, and software applications to support space operations. He worked on early US cyber policies while on the staff of the President's National Security Telecommunications Advisory Committee (NSTAC) in the mid-1990s, then ran the program office delivering initial US Air Force information operations systems. Since 2001, he has worked for NATO in both program and project management and strategic staff positions. He has spoken at numerous cyber security and project management conferences in Europe, the U.S., and the Middle East.

Līga Bērziņa, uzvediba.lv vadītāja

Uzvedības problēmas dzīvē  un uzvedības problēmas internetā (LV)

Drošības instrukcijas- tas ir garlaicīgi, jo nereti lasāmviela aizņem vairākas mapes, bet paši treniņi – pat vairākas mokošas dienas.
Runāt par drošības noteikumiem internetā ar bērniem – tas var būt vēl sarežģītāk, jo viņu spēja un motivācija koncentrēties nopietnam saturam (pat ja tā var ietekmēt viņa drošību un veselību) ir vēl īsāka.

Kas vieno pieaugušos un bērnus? Spēles! Tas jau ir pierādīts – spēles palīdz noturēt uzmanību, palielina koncentrēšanās spējas un padara mācību procesu efektīvāku. Kā spēļu elementu ieviešana dzīvē var palīdzēt darbā un ārpus darba? Kā dzīves situāciju spēļošana var palīdzēt drošai uzvedībai gan lieliem, gan maziem? Kā mēs varam pārliecināties, ka mūsu sacītais patiešām ir ticis sadzirdēts?

Līga Bērziņa ir Out Loud SIA vadītāja, un jau vairāk nekā 10 gadus veido drošības spēles industriālos uzņēmumos gan emocionālās vardarbības prevencijai, gan drošai uzvedībai kopumā. Ņemot vērā, ka daudzi jaunieši savainojas jau pirmajās prakses dienās, uzņēmums pirms diviem gadiem izveidoja zīmolu uzvediba.lv ar mērķi izstrādāt instrumentus, kas palīdzētu bērniem un jauniešiem, kuri cieš no vardarbības skolā un virtuālajā vidē. Jaunākās  spēles ir „Dusmu kontroles spēle” un „Nosargāt internetā”.

User and IoT-Oriented Network Traffic Monitoring (EN)

For years network traffic monitoring has focused on protocols, and IP address/ports. Today users demand more behaviour-oriented tools able to characterise user traffic, and prevent device/Iot-specific data exchanges. This talk show how to achieve this using open source software on embedded systems. ntopng is an open source network traffic application based on nDPI a library for deep-packet inspection (both available as open source at http://github.com/ntop). The talk describes the challenges of modern, content/user-oriented network traffic monitoring where we need to move from the traditional packet-oriented paradigm (IP X contacted host Y) to user-oriented (user A is talking on Skype call with user B) and IoT-aware (my television is trying to send an email, is this allowed?) traffic patterns. Finally it describes the challenges of these monitoring activities, and how to make them efficient enough to be run on cheap embedded devices. The core talk topics include network traffic monitoring, deep packet inspection, embedded devices.

Founder of the ntop project that develops open source network traffic monitoring applications. ntop (circa 1998) is the first app we released and it is a web-based network monitoring application. Today our products range from traffic monitoring, high-speed packet processing, deep-packet inspection (DPI), IDS/IPS acceleration, and DDoS Mitigation. See http://github.com/ntop/

Mārcis Pelcis, Finanšu nozares asociācijas Banku fiziskās drošības apakškomitejas līdzpriekšsēdētājs

Kiberdrošības brieduma novērtējums bankā (LV)

Sekmīgs kiberuzbrukums, kādai no Latvijā strādājošajām sistēmiski nozīmīgajām bankām, spēj radīt ne tikai reputācijas un finanšu zaudējumu riskus pašai bankai, bet arī būtiski ietekmēt valsts finanšu sistēmas stabilitāti kopumā. Riska mazināšanai un aizsardzības efektivitātes celšanai, ir nepieciešams veikt banku kiberdrošības novērtējumu, iegūstot zināšanas ne tikai par atsevišķu drošības kontroļu un tehnoloģiju efektivitāti, bet arī par uzņēmumā veikto kiberdrošības pārvaldību kopumā.

Kiberdrošības brieduma novērtējums ir efektīvs veids, kā šīs zināšanas iegūt, savukārt NIST kiberdrošības ietvars, ir piemērots rīks kā salīdzinoši vienkārša veidā un runājot visām novērtējumā iesaistītajām pusēm saprotamā valodā, šo novērtējumu veikt. Turklāt NIST kiberdrošības ietvars pēc savas uzbūves ir universāls un elastīgs, ļaujot to piemērot faktiski jebkurā nozarē un industrijā.

Pētījums neaptver visas Latvijā strādājošās bankas, taču tas sniedz ieskatu sektora kiberdrošības brieduma kopējās tendencēs un identificē nepieciešamos pilnveidošanās virzienus.

DOH! DNS over HTTPS (EN)

Domain Name System (DNS) was invented on year 1983, which is more than 35 years ago and it is a critical part of the Internet.  Since it is such a critical component, security is a very important issue in DNS.

How do I protect my privacy on the Internet? How do I protect myself and my company from DNS-based attacks? Mozilla’s Trusted Recursive Resolver (TTR)
project by utilizing Dns-over-https (DoH) protocol comes to the rescue.

DoH is a new modern standard, currently in Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Request for Comments (RFC) draft state, with relatively simple implementation to get it working and a high level of security. With the backing of Mozilla and already working DoH servers from such companies as Google and Cloudflare it has a great potential.

Let’s secure our privacy on the internet by securing our DNS.

I am an IT security researcher and consultant. I am working with public, defense, finance and manufacturing verticals to architect and implement different security solutions which help protect their IT enviroment's accessibility, integrity and confidentiality. Some of the solutions are SIEM(Security informational events management) systems, vulnerability lifecycle management and privileged access management.

Silvia Väli, Clarified Security, web application pentester

Only an Electron away from Code Execution (EN)

Over the decades, various security techniques to mitigate desktop specific vulnerabilities have been developed which makes it difficult to successfully exploit traditional desktop applications. With the rise of Electron framework, it became possible to develop multi-platform desktop applications by using commonly known web technologies. Developed by the Github team, Electron has already become amazingly popular (used by Skype, Slack, Wire, Wordpress and so many other big names), bringing adventurous web app developers to explore the desktop environment. These same developers who make the XSS to be the most common web vulnerability are now bringing the same mistakes to a whole new environment.

While XSS in the web applications is bounded by the browser, the same does not apply to Electron applications. Making the same kind of mistakes in an Electron application widens the attack surface of desktop applications, where XSS can end up being so much more dangerous.

So in this talk, I will discuss the Electron framework and the related security issues, its wonderful “features” getting me a bunch of CVE’s, possible attack vectors and the developers in the dark about these issues.

AND as Electron apps do not like to play in the sandbox, this talk will DEMO Electron applications found to be vulnerable, gaining code execution from XSS.

Security researcher from Estonia, working as a web-application pentester in Clarified Security. She has been the speaker at the NorthSec 2018 in Montreal, Hack.lu (upcoming) in Luxembourg.
