InsomniaHack Trip Report

Insomni'Hack Info:

Favorite talks
Bridging the gap between ICS(IoT?) and corporate IT security
Stefan Lüders

My favorite slide was their alerting stack:

Not sure when the slides will be released but here is an older version of the talk I found:

Francis Alexander & Bharadwaj Machiraj

Awesome talk on breaking into 

  • HashiCorp Consul
  • Apache Zookeeper
  • CoreOS etcd
Tool they created:

Paul Rascagnères

Fun talk on how APT have been implementing some checks to make sure the targets are valid prior to sending down the final stage of the attack. 

@cktricky and I also were able to give the talk at CERN. Background info on CERN:
