  • 20:45 - 21:15; A talk about malware Some interesting things I've found while playing with barcodes.
  • 21:30 - 22:00; The Timing Attacks They Are a-Changin’ Web-based timing attacks have been known for over a decade. It has been shown that, under optimal network conditions, an adversary can use such an attack to obtain information on the state of a user in a cross-origin website. In recent years, desktop computers have given way to laptops and mobile devices, which are mostly connected over a wireless or mobile network. These connections often do not meet the optimal required conditions to reliably perform cross-site timing attacks.
    I will elaborate on our recent research efforts on browser-based side-channel attacks. We discovered that various browser features can be abused by attackers. These "side-channel leaks" allow an adversary to uncover the size of cross-origin resources. I will demonstrate how malicious advertisers can - in just a few lines of JavaScript - leverage these novel attacks to uncover personal details of unknowing victims. Finally, I will discuss what we, as end users or website developers, can do to thwart these attacks.
  • 22:15 - 23:15; Wireless Belgium An introduction about Community based WAN (ISP) and LoRaWAN technology.
