How to Break and Secure Single Sign-On (OAuth and OpenID Connect)
Single sign-on protocols are one of the most important Internet technologies and are used by countless applications. Security plays a critical role when using systems based on standards such as OAuth and OpenID Connect. Successful attacks allow hackers to bypass authentication or to access confidential user data. In this training, you will learn all security aspects relevant to single sign-on based on OAuth and OpenID Connect. You will learn which serious attacks exist and get the chance to try them yourself in our test environment. Finally, you will learn how to test and defend your own systems against these attacks.
Karsten Meyer zu Selhausen has several years of experience in the fields of secure deployment and secure use of well-known single sign-on standards, such as OAuth, OpenID Connect and SAML.
He works as an IT security consultant, penetration tester and trainer for Hackmanit GmbH since 2016. During his master degree in IT Security at the Ruhr-University Bochum, he specialized on the security of protocols for delegated authorization and authentication, as well as data description languages, such as XML and PDF. He gained profound expertise in the security of single sign-on procedures, such as OAuth, OpenID Connect and SAML, during numerous consulting projects and penetration tests. Karsten frequently shares his knowledge and experience with customers from various industry fields in IT security training courses.
Mobile Network Operations and Security
This workshop describes basic functions and security shortcomings in mobile
networks, both in the core network and in radio network, for GSM, UMTS, LTE
and 5GNR. The material is intended for individuals in the areas of
journalism, international aid, corporate security, and the law, who have or
who work with people who have specific security concerns and want to
better understand what is really happening in their phones and in the
mobile networks that serve those phones.
The workshop will start with an overview of cellular technology in general
and types of security flaws common to all mobile networks, and then
proceed to specific examples for different network segments and technology
types. The workshop will include demonstrations of some security failures
and deeper analysis of specific events reported in the popular press. The
goal of the workshop is to give attendees a good grasp of key concepts in
mobile network operation and the security implications, while avoiding
unnecessary technical details. Questions and discussion are welcome and
This workshop covers the mobile network, handset baseband, and SIM only,
and does not address Android, iOS or application-layer security.

Pentesting Industrial Control Systems
In this intense 2-day training, you will learn everything you need to start pentesting Industrial Control Networks. We will cover the basics to help you understand the most common ICS vulnerabilities. We will then spend some time learning and exploiting Windows & Active Directory weaknesses, as most ICS are controlled by Windows systems.
We will cover the most common ICS protocols (Modbus, S7, OPC…), analyze packet captures and learn how to use these protocols to talk to Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs). You will learn how to program a PLC, to better understand how to exploit them.
The training will end with a challenging hands-on exercise: The first CTF in which you capture a real flag! Using your newly acquired skills, you will try to compromise a Windows Active Directory, pivot to an ICS setup to take control of a model train and robotic arms.
Moreover, the training doesn’t stop on the last day! Each participant will receive a 30-day access to an elearning portal, which allows to watch the training content on video, as well as to perform all the exercises on a cloud platform.
Arnaud Soullié (@arnaudsoullie) is a manager at Wavestone. For 10 years he has been performing security audits and pentests on all type of targets. He specializes in Industrial Control Systems and Active Directory security. He has spoken at numerous security conferences on ICS topics : BlackHat Europe, BruCon, 4SICS, BSides Las Vegas, DEFCON... He is also the creator of the DYODE project, an opensource data diode aimed at ICS.
Advanced Whiteboard Hacking – aka Hands-on Threat Modeling
First released at Black Hat USA trainings 2021, we release our latest threat modeling training with a new threat modeling war game with red and blue threat modeling teams. Engaged in capture the flag style threat modeling challenges your team will battle for control over an offshore windmill park. Based on our experience in securing real-world Operational Technology (OT) infrastructure we released this war game in première at Black Hat USA 2021. Also, in this edition we enhanced the sections on agile and DevOps threat modeling, threat modeling and compliance, added a section on "threat modeling at scale" and all participants get our Threat Modeling Playbook plus one-year access to our online threat modeling coaching subscription.
As highly skilled professionals with years of experience under our belts, we know that there is a gap between academic knowledge of threat modeling and the real world. In order to minimize that gap, we have developed practical Use Cases, based on real-life projects. Each use case includes a description of the environment, together with questions and templates to build a threat model.
Using this methodology for our hands-on workshops we provide our students with a challenging training experience and the templates to incorporate threat modeling best practices into their daily work. Students will be challenged in groups of 3 to 4 people to perform the different stages of threat modeling on the following:
• Diagramming web and mobile applications, sharing the same REST backend
• Threat modeling an IoT gateway with a cloud-based update service
• Get into the defender's head – modeling points of attack against a nuclear facility
• Threat mitigations of OAuth scenarios for an HR application
• Privacy analysis of a new face recognition system in an airport
• Battle for control over "Zwarte Wind", an offshore windmill park
After each hands-on workshop, the results are discussed, and students receive a documented solution. Based on our successful trainings in the last years and the great and positive feedback, we released this updated advanced threat modeling training at Black Hat USA 2021.
