Kudelski Security to Present on Automated Testing of Crypto Software at Black Hat USA 2017
Monday, July 17, 2017

Company Hosting Crypto Challenge With 10 Ether of Prizes and a Series of After Show Debriefs on Hot Industry Topics

CHESEAUX-SUR-LAUSANNE, Switzerland and PHOENIX, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Kudelski Security, the cybersecurity division within the Kudelski Group (SIX:KUD.S) and trusted innovator for the world's most security-conscious organizations, today announced that Jean-Philippe Aumasson, principal security engineer and Yolan Romailler, research engineer, will contribute their industry expertise in a session titled "Automated Testing of Crypto Software Using Differential Fuzzing." The presentation takes place on Wednesday, July 26(th) in Las Vegas, Nevada at 2:40 pm PT at Black Hat USA 2017, again at 5:00 pm PT at BSides LV and a third time on Saturday, July 29(th) at 5:30 pm PT at DEF CON 25.

Experts from Kudelski Security will also dive into topics such as cloud security and orchestration, managed attacker deception, advanced threat intelligence, designing IoT security and cryptography during a series of Debriefing Sessions hosted at the Four Seasons Hotel.

Aumasson and Romailler's presentation will focus on a new and efficient approach to systematic testing of cryptographic software: differential fuzzing. Unlike general purpose software fuzzing such as afl, differential fuzzing doesn't aim to find memory corruption bugs (although they might come as a by-product), but to find logic bugs. Compared to test vectors, differential fuzzing provides greater code coverage and compared to formal verification, differential fuzzing is easier to apply, both for testers and developers. Aumasson and Romailler will present this session at both Black Hat and BSides LV. Romailler will also present it at Crypto & Privacy Village within DEF CON 25.

While at Black Hat 2017, Kudelski Security will also be hosting a Crypto Challenge, a series of after show Debriefs Sessions and a party at the House of Blues' Foundation Room within Mandalay Bay. Details include:
