AthCon 2011 update

CENSUS has participated once again at AthCon, the leading technical IT security conference in Greece. Our work entitled “Introducing the Parasite” presented a small device that is capable of creating a physical backdoor in an otherwise protected network.

The talk focused on how to build such a device from off-the-shelf components and how its use changes the Security Testing paradigm, bringing benefits to both the customer and penetration tester. Our talk also included tips regarding the deployment of such devices in different scenarios and suggested ways in which the availability of the backdoor tunnel could be improved.

Below you may find the presentation slides:
