As I wrote about the Ethical Hacking conference earlier I had a presentation on firewalls and encryption topic. Generally I showed how encrypted traffic can be inspected and controlled on firewalls and IDS/IPS systems. The main idea was to show that the MITM technology could be used for a “good” purpose and not only for black-hat duties. I had small live demos doing MITM on SSL and SSH streams, like doing simple URL filtering, content modification, double authentication using certificates and replaying back recorded SSH session. I was using our good old Zorp firewall for the demos. I was a bit nervous before the show, but everything went very well, without any trouble.
The conference was full with around 370 participants and I must admit that everybody stayed till the end of the day which is a very rare at conferences in Hungary. Overall this was the best conference I have attended so far. It was very well organized and the overall quality of the presentations was very good. We ought to have more conferences like this.
I will give a presentation on how to handle encrypted traffic on firewalls. I am very excited cause this conference is a non marketing speech one with lot of real-life demos. I prepared (actually I am still preparing) some interesting and hopefully eye-candy stuff with some Zorp and SCB magic involving SSL and SSH proxies.
It will be in Hugarian so everyone speaking or at least understanding the language or willing to learn it till (it is definitely worthwhile!) and interested in various IT security related topics are very much welcome.
See you there.
