Base64 Can Get You Pwned!

  • Kevin Fiscus
  • Tuesday, July 30th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

There are many different types of numbering systems and related encoding including binary (base2), decimal (base10) and hexadecimal (base16). One commonly used numbering system is base64. Learn how you can use this simple encoding to bypass DLP and WAF controls, write malware to victim systems, and even execute self-contained cross site scripting attacks. Then understand how it is possible to detect this type of threat using freely available tools and techniques.
