Announcing the first 5 talks of TROOPERS18!!!!

TROOPERS17 was unlike any TROOPERS we had known before. Everything just seemed bolder, better, and beyond our expectations. From surprise speakers like the grugq (do you have a follow-up talk for #TR18 by the way?) to new speakers who are now TROOPERS family, TROOPERS17 is one for the history books!

If you were there you might be wondering to yourself, how could they possibly top it (and if you were not there check out this video from TR17)? Well, I am not going to lie, it will be a challenge. However, the high quality of talk and training submissions for this year have us feeling pretty positive about making #TR18 the “best year ever”!

With that being said I am happy to introduce the first official 5 talks of TROOPERS18!

TROOPERS for Students!

We are super excited for TROOPERS18 (March 12-16th, 2018) as are many of you! We even have this great saying that “after TROOPERS is before TROOPERS”, which means we spend a lot of time looking through feedback from attendees, speakers/trainers, and our own Crew for ways to not only top what we’ve done in the years before, but also how to simply make it better for everyone involved.  Looking around at our Crew we realized how many have either attended TROOPERS or other conferences as students. We heard from them, as well as other students, how life changing it was to be able, as a student, to attend an IT-Security conference. How they got to meet a speaker whose work they’d read about in class. How people felt even more a part of the community they were studying hard to belong to.  Continue reading “TROOPERS for Students!”

TR17 Training: Crypto attacks and defenses

This is a guest blog written by Jean-Philippe AumassonPhilipp Jovanovic about their upcoming TROOPERS17 training: Crypto attacks and defenses. 

The 1-day training from last TROOPERS has become a 2-day training, featuring even more real-world attacks and defenses as well as new hands-on sessions! We’ll teach you, step by step, how to spot and exploit crypto vulnerabilities, how to use the strongest forms of state-of-the-art cryptography to secure modern systems (like IoT or mobile applications), and bring you up to speed on the latest and greatest developments in the world of cryptography, such as TLS 1.3, blockchains, and post-quantum crypto.

TR17 Training: Fuzzing with American Fuzzy Lop, Address Sanitizer and LibFuzzer

This is a guest blog written by Hanno Böck who will be running the Fuzzing with American Fuzzy Lop, Address Sanitizer and LibFuzzer at TROOPERS17.

Fuzzing is a very old technique to find bugs and vulnerabilities in software. However it has seen a new push in recent years due to vastly improved tools. The compilers gcc and clang have received Sanitizer tools that allow finding a lot of bugs like use after free errors and out of bounds reads that are otherwise very hard to find.

2nd Rounds of TROOPERS17 Talks!

It is the end of the year and we are hoping it is not too hectic of a time for you all! But if it is, hopefully the announcement of our next round of TROOPERS17 talks is enough to get you in the TROOPERS (if not the holiday) spirit 🙂


Francis Alexander & Bharadwaj Machiraju: How we hacked Distributed Configuration Management Systems

With increase in necessity of distributed applications, coordination and configuration management tools for these classes of applications have popped up. These systems might pop-up occasionally during penetration tests. The major focus of this research was to find ways to abuse these systems as well as use them for getting deeper access to other systems. Continue reading “2nd Rounds of TROOPERS17 Talks!”
