In this collaborative space, you will have the opportunity to engage in dynamic learning and networking opportunities. Kicking off the week with the popular RSAC Innovation Sandbox Contest, The RSAC Sandbox at Moscone Center North, Room 134 continues through Thursday, hosting a suite of hands-on activities. Bring your forward-thinking ideas to share with your peers and enrich your RSA Conference experience!
Here is a sneak peek into The RSAC Sandbox at 134 activities:
SANS NetWars is a suite of hands-on, interactive learning scenarios that enable information security professionals to develop and master the real-world, in-depth skills they need to excel in their field. In SANS award-winning courses, attendees consistently rate the hands-on exercises as the most valuable part of the course. With NetWars, SANS has raised the ante, as participants learn in a cyber range while working through various challenge levels with a focus on mastering skills that information security professionals can use in their jobs every day.
Submit your nomination to participate in NetWars.
Ed Skoudis is a security expert on hacker attacks and defenses, a world-renowned author and president of Counter Hack Challenges—the company that has built the most sophisticated cyber competitions and ranges used by the U.S. military. Skoudis has demonstrated hacker techniques against financial institutions for the U.S. Senate and frequently speaks at security conferences. He is also a SANS Faculty Fellow who teaches thousands of information security professionals how to improve their skills and better defend their networks. He was the expert called in by the White House to test the security viability of the Trusted Internet Connection (TIC), and he provides after-attack analysis on most major attacks against commercial organizations where credit card data is lost.
The ICS village contains both a full replica of a typical water plant network setup, as well as isolated industrial equipment stations to try out. You will get to interact firsthand with commonly found hardware and software that is used in most industries. You will be able to run common security/discovery tools against these systems, program a PLC, use one of our ICS protocol fuzzers or just ask questions and push buttons.
Tom Van Norman brought the first ICS Village to DefCon in 2014. As Senior Technical Staff at CounterHack Challenges, LLC, Van Norman provides insights into SANS NetWars Cybercity. He is also Cybersecurity Services Manager at Phoenix Contact and performs thought research on select cyber systems for Delaware Air National Guard. Previously he worked for CH2M Hill, ImClone Systems and the U.S. Air Force/Air National Guard.
On-chip debug (OCD) interfaces can provide chip-level control of a target device and are primary vectors used by engineers, researchers and hackers to extract program code or data, modify memory contents or affect device operation on the fly. Depending on the complexity of the target device, manually locating available OCD connections can be a difficult and time-consuming task, sometimes requiring physical destruction or modification of the device. JTAGulator is an open source hardware tool that assists in identifying OCD connections from test points, vias or component pads on a target device.
Joe Grand is an electrical engineer and prolific inventor with four pending patents and 19 commercially available products. Involved in computers and electronics since the age of 7, he is a former member of the legendary Boston-based hacker collective L0pht Heavy Industries, has testified before the United States Senate Governmental Affairs Committee under his nom de hack, Kingpin, and has been praised as a "modern day Paul Revere" by senators for his research and warnings of computer security weaknesses. Recognized for his unconventional approaches to product development and licensing, Grand is also a well-known hardware hacker and industrial artist, a book author and contributor, and a member of the technical advisory board of MAKE Magazine.
Become a sleuth at our digital crime scene and catch a would-be criminal.
With the multitude of digital devices used by today’s workforce, digital forensic skills have become necessary in piecing together the who, what, why and how of a crime. Come test your sleuthing skills at a mocked-up crime scene and digital forensics lab, and see if you can figure out who was involved in our crime via the smartphone evidence.
For two decades, Amber Schroader has been a driving force for innovation in digital forensics. Schroader has developed over two-dozen software programs designed to recover digital data from mobile phones, computer hard drives, email and live monitoring services. Schroader coined the concept of the “360-degree approach to digital forensics,” pushing for a big-picture consideration of the digital evidence acquisition process. An accomplished curriculum developer and instructor, Schroader has written and taught numerous classes for this specialized field.
Join us for some fun at our 1st Annual RSAC Beer Camp on April 21st from 4:30PM - 6:30PM! With a personal guide from the local California brewery Sierra Nevada, you will experience six craft beers that cover the gamut of brewing styles and ingredients. Camp fee also includes one beer-tasting glass, a printed guide with brewing information, and a bottle opener.
A list of potential beers to be tasted will be made available prior to Beer Camp, but the styles we are choosing from are the following: Rye IPA, Belgian, Amber Ale, Bock, Barley Wine Style Ale and a Dark Brew.
Camp fee: $25
Sierra Nevada set out with a simple goal: brew the beers everyone wanted to drink. In 1980, Ken Grossman started small, with a homebrew shop, a love of American hops and plenty of passion. In the process, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company changed the beer world forever. Decades later, they are still at it, and the passion burns brighter than ever.
