Forcepoint Security Labs at Black Hat Europe 2017
Forcepoint Security Labs researchers have just returned from a successful Black Hat Europe 2017 hosted in London, UK. We had an enjoyable time presenting, networking and expanding our own knowledge.
Thank you to all those who attended our Briefings Talk on Wednesday and who met us on our booth in the Business Hall.
Forcepoint Briefing - and Evader
Forcepoint researchers, Antti Levomäki & Olli-Pekka Niemi, delivered a briefing in the Network Defense track entitled “Automatic Discovery of Evasion Vulnerabilities using Targeted Protocol Fuzzing” on Wednesday 6 December at 11:45am. Their research demonstrated that many security devices still have basic evasion vulnerabilities that allow an attacker to evade detection and thus bypass the security device. Unfortunately this is still the case even many years after their original research was made public at an earlier Black Hat conference.
Olli-Pekka and Antti’s slides and whitepaper are now available from the official Black Hat website.

Black Hat and other security conferences like it provide a plethora of reading material available immediately after the conference. The full list of Black Hat Europe 2017 Briefings abstracts, including slides and whitepapers, can be found on the official conference website: https://www.blackhat.com/eu-17/briefings.html
Our team of Security Labs researchers and Consulting Engineers delivered presentations throughout the 2 days of the Business Hall show. We described the Cyber Continuum of Intent that explains user behavior and intent (of accidental, compromised and malicious users), we mapped the NIST framework core to suitable solutions and offered customised guidance and advice to our audience. Thank you to all those who attended and engaged with our experts. We hope that we answered all of your questions and to support the content delivered on the booth you may consult the following resources:
