We have firmed up the last three speaking slots for Stage 2: Technical Deep Dives at S4x16. These are sessions and speakers we have been chasing, waiting for a firm commitment, and great additions to the agenda.

  • Medical Security – Billy Rios of Laconicly is going to give a “give a really technical talk on infusion pump teardown and analysis.” My guess is this will be like Ralph Langner’s Stuxnet Deep Dive in that everyone had heard about Stuxnet, but having the person who spent man months or years tearing an infusion pump apart explain it in technical detail will be fascinating. Billy will also be bringing infusion pumps down for attendees to play with in a lobby display.
  • Auto Security – Craig Smith of Open Garages and the author of Car Hacker’s Handbook will give an insider’s technical view of auto security. He works closely with the auto industry to identify and explain security issues and develop solutions. More details on his session will be up shortly, but he was our number one target to speak on auto security because of his understanding of both the technology and industry.
  • Mechanical Integrity – S4 Alumni Bryan Singer of Kenexis will be present “Is it Possible to Assure Mechanical Integrity and Safety on Ethernet Connected Devices?” This is a follow on session to last year’s “The Pragmatic Pwn of ICS”. OSHA 1910.119(j) requires that to achieve mechanical integrity, one must be able to control all of the inputs and outputs to a given device. The session will explore various considerations for combining traditional engineering devices such as Emergency Relief Valves and hardwired Machine Overspeed Protection devices. This is the case using cyber / physical for defense.
