Literature[ edit ] Literary criticism is the analysis of literature. The focus can be as diverse as the analysis of Homer or Freud. While not all literary-critical methods are primarily analytical in nature, the main approach to the teaching of literature in the west since the mid-twentieth century, literary formal analysis or close reading, is. This method, rooted in the academic movement labelled The New Criticismapproaches texts — chiefly short poems such as sonnetswhich by virtue of their small size and significant complexity lend themselves well to this type of analysis — as units of discourse that can be understood in themselves, without reference to biographical or historical frameworks.
Claudio Criscione Virtually Pwned: Pentesting Virtualization Virtualization systems are nowadays ubiquitus in enterprises of any size.
Penetration testers and security auditors, however, often overlook virtualization infrastructures, simply looking at the virtual machines without any direct analysis of the underlying solution, not to mention those analyses simply marking virtual environments as "not-compliant". A different, new approach is required to assess such systems, defining new targets and new ways to get there.
This talk will outline procedures and approaches, complete with tools and demos, to execute a penetration test or a design review on virtualization enviroments. Security experts eager to know more about these systems and sysops willing to protect their own fortress will find this talk interesting Tom Cross Unauthorized Internet Wiretapping: Exploiting Lawful Intercept For many years people have been debating whether or not surveillance capabilities should be built into the Internet.
Cypherpunks see a future of perfect end to end encryption while telecom companies are hard at work building surveillance interfaces into their networks. Do these lawful intercept interfaces create unnecessary security risks? This talk will review published architectures for lawful intercept and explain how a number of different technical weaknesses in their design and implementation could be exploited to gain unauthorized access and spy on communications without leaving a trace.
The talk will explain how these systems are deployed in practice and how unauthorized access is likely to be obtained in real world scenarios. The talk will also introduce several architectural changes that would improve their resilience to attack if adopted.
We created a tool that allows you to easily jump into any JVM on your machine, and tamper with class bytecode, method parameters, return values - without requiring any pesky original source code, or the most elusive artifact - skill!
What happens when that applet you want to hack uses serialized objects over a custom encryption scheme, and you have 40 hours to break it? JavaSnoop will allow you to intercept calls inside the JVM for tampering with data before it gets to the network, while its still in object form!
What happens when that fancy desktop tool you have has an expired license? All this in a nice, portable GUI tool. Although the ideas behind these exploitation techniques can be traced quite far back, they are receiving more attention as non-executable memory protections become more prevalent.

This presentation will cover the current state of memory corruption exploitation and exploit mitigation as well as an in-depth discussion of a variety of return-oriented exploitation techniques.
Finally, the presentation will discuss what ramifications return-oriented exploitation techniques have for exploit developers, software vendors, malware analysts, and enterprise IT security professionals. Michael Davis Security is not a four letter word When security professionals talk with executives about security a four letter word normally comes to their mind — COST.
Most security professionals are like a deer in front of headlights when they need to justify or communicate additional investment in security. It is not their fault though as most education for security professionals never talks about IT security metrics, how to communicate security value, and, even though it is a soft skill, how to talk with executives.
This paper and presentation aims to change this. In Junewe will be launching the last step in our research of this topic.
We will leverage the readership of InformationWeek, of the largest IT magazines, and survey the IT security professionals to learn what metrics they are use, why they are using them, what is and is not working, and how the communicate to their executive management.
We will take this survey data in addition to the data from a many interviews with CSOs and IT Security process engagements with clients over the past year and half to educate the attendees on the best practices to address this growing problem.
For example, we found that the organizations that had the highest continued investment in security usually did not have that investment lead by IT Security.
Of course, the devil is in the details and we found that this is because the committee or team that proposed new IT security investments was usually made up of people with only one person being an IT Security representative.
The format of their meetings in which they reviewed IT security progress and potential needs for investment focused on educating the other members of the committee about the security value through the use of real-world business applicable scenarios that actually involved the team members of the executives in the room, and most importantly, was mapped to business strategy.
There is an overwhelming correlation between the linkage of business strategy and IT Security to successfully funded organizations in our research. Linking security metrics, which is normal esoteric and very technically oriented, to strategic business objectives is difficult for many security professionals but leveraging the approach of using the Balanced Score Card business strategy method, but adapting it to IT security, has shown to be the key factor for making the link occur.
Within our presentation we will provide a step by step process to building and implementing an IT security Metrics program, tying that program to Business strategy using the Balanced Score Card method the most used method for documenting and quantifying business strategyand then provide case studies, and results from our interviews and survey, to educate the attendees on how to communicate effectively in the board room when asking for security investment.
Measurement, Business Justification, and Communication skills. This is the missing link for most security professionals to take their career to the next level.
A ghost at the heart of your business In any company, the ERP Enterprise Resource Planning is the heart of the business technological platform. These systems handle the key business processes of the organization, such as procurement, invoicing, human resources management, billing, stock management and financial planning.
The information stored in these systems is of absolute importance to the company, which unauthorized manipulation would result in big economic losses and loss of reputation. This talk will present an old concept applied to a new paradigm: We will discuss different novel techniques that can be deployed by malicious intruders in order to create and install backdoors in SAP systems, allowing them to retain access or install malicious components that would result in imperceptible-and-ongoing financial frauds.(Analyses, rebuttals and other observations about “The World According to Ronald Reagan” can be posted in the comments section below.).
