SSL/TLS - Just when you thought it was safe to return


2009 was a serious year in breaking secure protocols. SSL/TLS was no different. Hacking SSL/TLS has a big return as a blackhat hacker, once you penetrate a corporate network, stealing login details and passwords are just the beginning. SSL VPN's can also be vulnerable to a number of attacks. There are a number of tools and techniques that are readily available that can make defeating SSL/TLS both simple and well within the reach of the unauthorized attackers.The talk focuses on the research and tools of Moxie Marlinspike, who has gained an excellent reputation as an independent security research. With some interesting attack vectors, you'll be surprised at the results one can achieve.
