The Art of the Impossible: Attacking the Modern Web

  • Moses Frost
  • Wednesday, August 21st, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Let me ask you a question, you ever heard these terms? "Cloud", "Cloud Native", "Docker", "MicroServices", "Kubernetes", "Modern Web Stack". So how secure are these things, how do you test them, break them, hack them? This presentation will provide a practical guide to approach these types of scenarios. Many of these technologies are strikingly new, probably visually stunning, but are they entirely secure? This talk will explore concepts like Modernized languages, Exposed In-Memory Databases, Proxies, Breaking Microservices, and more. We will show demos of how to abuse the latest architectures and frameworks. Follow me as we break the stuff that everyone else is just riding by, or discovering on accident.

Let's go attack the cloud, everyone! This talk walks through the land of the cloud in a fun and storybook way. Let's also figure out along the way how to break, attack, and pillage, for good.
