DeepSec 2016

MWR is pleased to announce that Marco Lancini will be running a two day workshop at DeepSec in Vienna this year.

Event Description

DeepSec brings together the world's most renowned security professionals from academics, Government, industry, and the underground hacking community to meet and exchange knowledge.

Talk presented by MWR

  • Time:
  • Room: TBC
  • Topic: Offensive iOS Exploitation
  • Speakers: Marco Lancini
  • Description: This is an exercise-driven training course that uses detailed tutorials to guide you through all the steps necessary to exploit a real iOS application, and in the process, provide you with an understanding of the modern attacker’s mind-set and capabilities. This course will cover iOS hacking, from the basics of vulnerability hunting on the platform to advanced exploitation techniques. At its conclusion, we will have imparted the information necessary to develop secure and robust applications.

    This is a technical course suitable for those interested in mobile application security. The training does not require any prior security knowledge in order to benefit fully from the course, as the content covers all of the basics necessary to understand advanced concepts. However, a working knowledge of iOS is a prerequisite and it is recommended that you are familiar with the syntax and structure of an iOS application, basic internal and external communications as well as accessing resources from an application.

    In addition, this workshop will use MWR's newly released "Needle" to identify and exploit all the common mobile application security flaws, over and above the OWASP Mobile Top Ten. Needle is an open source modular framework which aims to streamline the entire process of conducting security assessments of iOS applications, and acts as a central point from which to do so. Given its modular approach, Needle is easily extensible and new modules can be added in the form of python scripts. Needle is intended to be useful not only for security professionals, but also for developers looking to secure their code. A few examples of testing areas covered by Needle include: data storage, inter-process communication, network communications, static code analysis, hooking and binary protections.​ The only requirement in order to run Needle effectively is a jailbroken device. We will also demonstrate how Needle can be used to find vulnerabilities in iOS applications from both a black-box and white-box perspective (if source code is provided).

    Other take-aways will include how to develop secure mobile applications that can withstand advanced attacks, how hackers attack mobile applications and iOS devices, and the most up to date and effective secure coding practices.

    Delegates are suggested to bring their own jailbroken iOS device (running iOS >= 8.4) to fully enjoy the course, as these won't be provided. It has to be noted that, even if a device isn't essential, as practical examples will be delivered by the Instructor, this is however recommended to fully engage in the course.
