Talk Details At-A-Glance:

Session: The Network Is Not Enough
When: Wednesday, July 26 and Thursday, July 27 at 2:30 PM
Where: Black Hat USA 2017 Business Hall, Arxan Booth #439
Who: Aaron Lint, ‎Vice President of Research at Arxan Technologies and Johnny Xmas, Sr. Information Security Consultant
What: Most enterprises focus on protecting their network and perimeter, and think their sensitive information and data are secure. During this talk, Aaron Lint and Johnny Xmas address how this traditional approach to network security leaves most enterprises vulnerable to a major attack -- especially given the exponential growth in web and mobile applications. They will cover the typical types of attacks that are happening at the application layer and will focus on pragmatic steps professionals can take to protect high-value applications from the growing threat of attacks occurring today.

Session: JavaScript: Perils & Opportunities

Where: Black Hat USA 2017 Business Hall, Arxan Booth #439
Who: Aaron Lint, ‎Vice President of Research at Arxan Technologies and Paul Dant, Senior Security Engineer at Arxan Technologies
What: JavaScript is everywhere today. This ubiquity has given rise to exponential growth in hybrid mobile apps and their frameworks. An increasing number of mobile payment and banking applications, which utilize JavaScript, are exposing large vulnerabilities of private consumer financial data. Aaron Lint and Paul Dant will present a few key precautions and technology best practices that enterprises can utilize to protect themselves and their customers against tampering and attacks that target JavaScript-based applications.
