Clobbering the Cloud Haroon Meer Technical Director, SensePost Marco Slaviero Cyber Fighter, SensePost Nicholas Arvanitis Senior Security Analyst, SensePost
Cloud Computing dominates the headlines these days but like most paradigm changes this introduces new risks and new opportunities for us to consider. Some deep technical research has gone into the underlying technologies (like Virtualization) but to some extent this serves only to muddy the waters when considering the overall threat landscape. During this talk SensePost will attempt to separate fact from fiction while walking through several real-world attacks on "the cloud". The talk will focus both on attacks against the cloud and on using these platforms as attack tools for general Internet mayhem. For purposes of demonstration we will focus most of our demos and attacks against the big players...
