Mention a conference for hackers, and Intel may not be the first company that comes to mind. Yet Intel will have a pretty robust showing at this year’s Black Hat USA, a hybrid event being held August 6-11, both in Las Vegas and online.
Founded in 1997, Black Hat is a cybersecurity event that offers training, research updates and lots of personal networking. This year’s Black Hat opens with 4 days of training starting on Saturday, August 6. The main event will be held on Wednesday, August 10, and Thursday, August 11.
If you’re attending the live portion in Las Vegas, check out Intel’s booth #1460 on the show floor. The company will be giving demos on various security products and providing real-world use cases.
Also, Intel will offer theater presentations featuring partners that include Anjuna, Fortanix and Grip Security.
Here’s a sampling of Intel's theater sessions at this year's Black Hat USA:
> Project Circuit-Breaker: This community of elite hackers hunt for bugs in firmware, hypervisors, GPUs, chipsets and more. This virtual talk will be presented by Katie Trimble-Noble, director of product security and bug bounty at Intel.
> Fault-Injection Detection Circuits: This virtual session covers the tunable replica circuit (TRC), a fault-injection detection circuit that has been integrated into Intel Converged Security and Management Engine in the recent 12th Gen Intel Core CPUs. This is Intel's first foray into active fault-injection attack detection in high-volume products such as CPUs and chipsets. The session will be jointly presented by Daniel Nemiroff, an Intel senior engineer, and Carlos Tokunaga, principal engineer at Intel.
> Fuzzing: A Must-Have in Your Bug-Hunting Arsenal: Fuzz testing, aka fuzzing, is a dynamic software-testing mechanism. It's designed to detect a wide spectrum of bugs and potential security vulnerabilities ranging from memory corruption to deadlocks, from undefined behavior to exception handling. This in-person talk will be presented by Priyam Biswas, an offensive security researcher at Intel, as part of The Diana Initiative, an associated conference for the underrepresented in IT security.
