Security Innovation Demonstrates Mobile and IoT Security at Black Hat USA 2016

Hand’s-on simulations and training offer real-world insight into software and hardware vulnerabilities

Wilmington, MA – July 28, 2016 – Security Innovation, a cybersecurity provider and leader in the 2015 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Security Training, will be showcasing their expertise at Black Hat USA 2016. The company was selected to give a live demo around mobile security as well as a couple of two-day training for IoT security.

Senior Security Engineer and Mobile Center of Excellence (CoE) lead, Dinesh Shetty will be demonstrating his Android InsecureBank application at BlackHat’s Arsenal. Arsenal is the live demo area where BlackHat attendees and organizers choose the best of the best to present their open source tools to the user community.

During his session entitled “Learn Android Application Exploitation Using Android-InsecureBankv2,” Shetty will conduct an interactive demonstration of his custom application InsecureBank where he will conduct Mobile Application Security attacks that will get n00bs as well as 31337 attendees started on the path of Mobile Application Penetration testing.

Shetty will also be conducting a two-day training led by Aditya Gupta, founder and principal consultant of Attify, entitled "Offensive Hands-on Internet of Things (IoT) Exploitation." Attify has been conducting the course for more than 2 years in various countries around the world with every course being Sold Out.

IoT continues to emerge from a technology perspective, however not much attention has been given to the device's security until recently. "Offensive IoT Exploitation" is a brand new and unique course which offers security professionals the ability to assess and exploit the security of both the software and hardware in smart devices. The class wraps up with a hands-on Capture the Flag (CTF) challenge built specifically for BlackHat USA.  In this challenge, participants will need to identify and exploit vulnerabilities in a  vulnerable IoT device and connected mobile application. 

“Appliances like smart televisions and refrigerators that historically weren’t IP enabled carry an unknowing threat to many consumers that don’t realize they are connected to the internet ,” says Shetty. “Unfortunately, there is no common security or regulatory standard that fits all IoT devices, so companies are focused on getting their product to market as fast as possible rather than coming up with a proper security testing process for their hardware.”
