9 Technologies Security Researchers Will Break At Black Hat, July 29, 2013 This week's Black Hat USA Conference in Las Vegas will showcase hacks, tools and ideas that will once again challenge the way we think about IT security. Here are nine technologies that will be on the firing line as security researchers discuss and demonstrate vulnerabilities and exploits.
Fast Ethernet Embedded Systems
Researchers with the firm Inverse Path will break the barrier of hacking Fast Ethernet layer 1 and 2 by demonstrating techniques that don't take the expensive hardware traditionally required to attack 802.3 technology. They'll release customized firmware designed to work with inexpensive hardware and describe how their techniques could be used against network embedded systems used in the automation, automotive and avionics industries.
