Exploitation Throughout the Ages: Stacks, Canaries, ASLR, ROP and More!

  • David Hoelzer
  • Monday, August 7th, 7:15pm - 9:15pm

This two-hour keynote will look at the cybersecurity arms race of exploitation and the resulting defenses. The discussion starts back in the 90s with Aleph One and his seminal paper and ends with the most modern defenses available today... but we're not just talking about exploitation... we're demonstrating exploitation! David Hoelzer will discuss and demonstrate how attacks and defenses have evolved over the last 20 years, illustrating the work of a security researcher or hacker engaged in zero-day exploitation. Even though sections of the talk and the demonstrations can be quite technical, even non-technical people will leave with very useful awareness takeaways that can be applied to vulnerability remediation within your enterprise today.
