Learn About the Underground World of Anti-Cheats at Black Hat Europe

Applied Security Briefing lineup for this December event also includes expert looks at Google's ClusterFuzz and the art of breaking PDF encryption.

The organizers of Black Hat Europe have already announced some cutting-edge cybersecurity Briefings for the upcoming December event, including intriguing Applied Security Briefings on everything from cracking PDF encryption to the underground world of anti-cheat software.

Unveiling the Underground World of Anti-Cheats is a 50-minute Briefing about how a security researcher analyzed, tested and discovered multiple bypassing techniques against contemporary anti-cheat technologies. You’ll learn about a combination of static and dynamic investigation techniques including XignCode3, EasyAntiCheat and BattleEye and discover the virtues and weaknesses of each, along with a new tool for testing anti-cheat technology.

ClusterFuzz: Fuzzing at Google Scale offers you an inside look at how a Google team overcame the challenges of scaling to build and operate the largest publicly known fuzzing infrastructure, running over 25,000 cores and 2,500 targets. You’ll see how ClusterFuzz helped find 8,000 security vulnerabilities in several Google products, learn how it completely automates the entire fuzzing lifecycle, and hear how the process of writing fuzz targets into developer workflows was made to work at scale.

How to Break PDF Encryption promises to give attendees detailed insights and results from the analysis of PDF encryption tests on 27 of the most popular PDF viewers on the market. Researchers will demonstrate two novel techniques for breaking the confidentiality of encrypted documents, and walk you through responsible identification and disclosure processes.

Get more information on these and other practical presentations in the Briefings schedule for Black Hat Europe, which returns to The Excel in London December 2-5, 2019! For more information on what’s happening at the event and how to register, check out the Black Hat website.
