Segmentation: A practical guide
by: Ben Parker of Palo Alto Networks

We all know we should be segmenting networks to make it harder to compromise or gain additional access. The real question is how do you do that while still ensuring the applications and traffic that the business needs functioning continue. This talk will dive into the various different architectures and the traffic flows and advantages or disadvantages of each method.

  • Ben Parker is the System Engineer at Palo Alto Networks serving accounts in Northern Ohio. Having started working the helpdesk at the University of Mount Union and over the course of 10 years he progressed to become Senior Network Administrator spearheading the universities’ data security implementations. From there he moved to a role of designing and implementing secure networks and appliances for customers across Ohio. Since joining Palo Alto Networks he has assisted clients in taken a Prevention focused security posture reducing institutional risk through adapting a zero trust framework in line with the clients’ business goals.

 

Don’t forget to come early, starting at 6:00 PM, for food and soda, sponsored by TrustedSec.

Another great meeting from NEO Info Sec Forum – we hope to see you there!

Intern PoV: The Hollywood Fallacy
by: Raquel Milligan from Secure State

How many have seen TV shows such as CSI Cyber or Scorpion? Well, being a newbie to computers, I fell for Hollywood’s false painting of what a career in ‘cyber security’ looked like. Through my current schooling, internship and from attending various networking events and competing in Capture-The-Flag events, I have come to realize my initial idea of what a career in cyber security looked like was false. Anyone interested in hearing a students point of view on the computer security field would benefit from our talk. Especially those looking to hire students for internships or full-time positions.

  • Raquel Milligan is a Senior at Baldwin Wallace University majoring in Computer Networking and Security. Prior to attending Baldwin Wallace, she served in the United States Coast Guard for a total of 5 years. She now has a strong passion in all aspects of computer/information security.
  • Jonathan Cartwright (co-speaker) is a recent graduate of Baldwin Wallace University who majored in Computer Networking and Security and Business Management. Jon also graduated from Cuyahoga Community College with an Associates degree in Electrical Engineering/Networking Hardware.

Infosec Challenges
by: Alex Hamerstone from TrustedSec

The three biggest challenges that we face in infosec (that we have little or no control over)

  • Alex Hamerstone is the Practice Lead for the Governance, Risk, and Compliance division at TrustedSec.

It’s 2016, it’s time to stop
by Jamie Murdock from Binary Defense Systems

Breaches are getting more complex, we all know that. But a lot of these breaches can be mitigated and/or detected. This presentation will cover what is going on from a breach prospective, how many of these breaches are being perpetrated, and how we can easily help defend against them.

Jamie’s BIO:
For over 15 years, Jamie has specialized defending, securing, and protecting corporate networks. During this time, he has built security operation centers for Fortune 500 companies, providing expert guidance in all areas of security operations. He has built incident response and threat intelligence programs, including assisting federal agencies on cyber-crime investigations. Jamie has presented at regional and national conferences on the topics of security operations centers and threat intelligence.

 

The Case of the Crappy Crypter
by Tyler Hudack

Attackers utilize anything they can to make their malware FUD (Fully UnDetectable), including using new packers and crypters. But just like on the defensive side, there are snake oil salesman who try to peddle their ineffective wares to the bad guys. This talk is about one of those “products”, and will discuss the techniques used to examine this crappy crypter and how they can be applied when analyzed real threats.

Tyler’s BIO:
Tyler Hudak is a security guy that has been in the industry for a long time – (remember ILOVEYOU and ping of deaths? He does.) He currently works for a major medical institution doing incident response. In his spare times, he chips away at the sanity of unsuspecting innocents as they investigates things man was not meant to know.

Advanced Operating Systems & Their Offspring
by Nathaniel Alcock

The free descendants of Unix have developed a number of interesting technologies. OpenSSH, LibreSSL, Bhyve, Jails, Zones, ZFS, and DTrace are just a few of the tools forged in BSD and Illumos.
Nathaniel will provide a quick overview of what these communities.  Spending time talking about what these tools are, and how they canbe used outside of the systems they were designed in (ZFS in Linux, DTrace on Mac, etc.).

Nathaniel’s BIO:
Nathaniel Alcock is a web developer in Cleveland, Ohio. New to the area and NEOSIF, you can spot him talking functional programming, security, and weird tech.

Don’t Forget to Lock the Back Door!
A Characterization of IPv6 Network SecurityPolicy
by: Mark Allman

There is growing operational awareness of the challenges in securely operating IPv6 networks. Through a measurement study of 520,000 dual-stack servers and 25,000 dual-stack routers, we examine the extent to which security policy codified in IPv4 has also been deployed in IPv6. We find several high-value target applications with a comparatively open security policy in IPv6 including: (i) SSH, Telnet, SNMP, are more than twice as open in IPv6 as they are in IPv4, (ii) nearly half of routers with BGP open, were only open in IPv6, (iii) in the server dataset, SMB was twice as open in IPv6 as in IPv4. We conduct a detailed study of where port blocking policy is being applied and find that protocol openness discrepancies are consistent within network boundaries, suggesting a systemic failure in organizations to deploy consistent security policy. We successfully communicate our findings with ten different network operators and all ten confirm that the relative openness was unintentional. Eight of the ten immediately deployed a congruent IPv6 security policy, reflecting real operational concern. Finally, we revisit the belief that the security impact of this comparative openness in IPv6 is mitigated by the infeasibility of IPv6 network-wide scanning\textemdash we find that, for both of our datasets, host addressing practices make discovering these high-value hosts feasible by scanning alone. To help operators accurately measure their own IPv6 security posture, we make our scanning system publicly available.

Mark’s Bio:
Mark Allman is a senior scientist with the International Computer Science Institute (ICSI) and adjunct faculty in EECS at Case Western Reserve University.  His current research work is in the areas network architecture, security, transport protocols, congestion control and network measurement.  Prior to his appointment at ICSI, he conducted research on internetworking in satellite networks for BBN Technologies at NASA’s Glenn Research Center.  His professional activities include chairing and serving on numerous conference steering and program committees, as well as numerous leadership roles within the Internet Engineering Task Force.  He is a member of the ACM and holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in computer science from Ohio University.
