The Greater Augusta ISSA invites you to join us for our next meeting. We are excited to present Dr. Johannes Ullrich (https://twitter.com/johullrich)!
Johannes Ullrich is the founder of DShield. DShield is now part of the SANS Internet Storm Center which he leads since it was created from Incidents.org and DShield back in 2001. In 2005, he was named one of the 50 most powerful people in Networking by Network World Magazine. He is the dean of research, and an instructor for the SANS Institute.
Johannes grew up in Germany and moved to the US where he obtained a Ph.D. in physics from the University at Albany. His work on x-ray optics was awarded a number of research grants by NASA and the Department of Energy. He also authored a chapter in the Handbook of Optics.
The Internet of Evil Things
Embedded systems are the new target. As our networks grow uncontrolled and unsupervised, forgotten machines will take over and rule us all soon. The Internet Storm Center has observed a number of large scale attacks against devices. In some cases, these devices were used as a beach head to breach networks. This talk will cover some of the history and features of the Internet Storm Center, and how we used our sensors to detect and analyze attacks against the Internet of Things.
