Principal Security Researcher Ryan Castellucci from White Ops will also be presenting, "Cracking Cryptocurrency Brainwallet" on Friday, August 7, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. PT. Castellucci will discuss the history and general concept of "brainwallets," a way for truly paranoid cryptocurrency users to wager their fortunes on their ability to choose a good password or passphrase.

White Ops offers the world's first systematic, massively scalable, continuous anti-fraud solution for accurately isolating and eliminating bot-infected traffic. By applying the frictionless and invisible techniques of Side Channel Analysis across thousands of real-time user session variables, White Ops differentiates between a human and machine-driven request, across the full spectrum of impression and click fraud techniques -- regardless of the sophistication of the bot programmer and their attempts to adapt and evade. This agile and deterministic approach is vastly more advanced and effective than methods generally employed by legacy fraud detection services, which rely largely on historical data and statistical and predictive analysis to estimate bot activity.
