S4x15 attendees have some choices for the Friday activity. There is the ICSage: ICS Cyber Weapons conference and now two one-day advanced training classes. We pick classes that will teach students with the right experience a new, leading edge skill in one day. These classes are typically being taught for the first time. The two classes this year are:
Instructors: Corey Thuen and Reid Wightman of Digital Bond
Corey has been digging into CANBus as part of his research project he will present in the S4 Technical Sessions. He learned a lot and wants to pass that along to the students.
There is no way to do this course without the right hardware. So there is a $100 hardware supplement so every student will have a BeagleBone with CANBus Cape they can use in the course and take home with them.
Why Should the Red Team Have All the Fun?
Instructors: Jim Gilsinn and Bryan Singer of Kenexis
Jim and the Kenexis team have developed a new ICS lab environment that they can bring on the road. So there will be some instruction focusing on defensive techniques and then the class will have a Red/Blue competition.
Each lab pod will have three students on each team and some of the lessons learned will be on the techniques and reasons why the various teams won and lost.
The 100+ that have already registered for S4x15 should have received an email on how they can switch from ICSage to the class or add the class if they want.
Seats for each class are limited and look closely at the required knowledge. You will be left behind if you don’t have the required knowledge.
