7:00 - The Security of Classic Game Consoles - Kevin Shekleton –

It's 1986 and you're sitting a few feet away from your big screen 19" CRT television. Blowing the dust out of your Super Mario cartridge you insert it into your Nintendo and push the power button. The familiar music plays and you're sucked into a world of Goombas and castles on your quest to save the princess. While engrossed in your game, you probably didn't realize the engineering that went into the security of your game and console.

Join me as we travel back through history and explore the security of classic game consoles. You don't have to be a gamer to appreciate the various security methods that were employed, including hardware, media, and software security measures. Learn how many of these security measures were exploited, either directly or indirectly, as well as the security measures which have yet to be broken.

You'll leave this fun presentation with not only an understanding of the technical details of what went into protecting the security of your favorite classic game consoles and how they were broken, but also how we can apply these historical lessons learned to the modern software and systems we build today.


8:00 - Open Source SIEM Or My Love Hate relationship with Alienvault's OSSIM - @asmodianx2000

Open Source Security Information Manager OSSIM is an open source SIEM which combines open source threat intel and best of breed open IDS and network along with Vulnerability assessment tools and asset management tools. Like most security focused linux distributions when you peel back the cool web GUI you find layers upon layers of duct tape and baling wire but if you have a small or medium sized network its extremely useful.
