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.
The following bonus sessions are open to all paid attendees at no additional cost. There are many different types of events that fall into these categories:
