Session Abstract

Feeling like you're "Sleepin' with the Phishes" with Luca Brasi? Witnessing more Whaling than Captain Ahab aboard the Pequod? Well then... wade on into the Webinar and join the School of Phish!

We'll be presenting on what we hope are some creative angling techniques to Sink, SIEM, and Seal up those leaking credentials and perhaps even lure the Phishers themselves into our nets. What's included within our Phish story will be:

  • How to utilize your SIEM as a Phish Finder SONAR.
  • How to reach into the Gmail GAFE tackle box of tools that includes a look at use of Content Compliance Filters, Vault, and alert notices.
  • Explore a cast of options to scale Phishes in a Phishtank or a variety of other Sinks.
  • Set some hooks in trolling Vault.
  • Chum the attackers with honeypeeps to identify where you're getting snagged.

While some of our charter boat tour will be what systems are utilized at Lehigh specifically, we feel all strategies and processes presented will be useful no matter how your organization is outfitted! We also expect this to be a collaborative expedition as we hope to reel in new ideas and automation into this process.

Speaker(s): Keith Hartranft, CISSP, CISM, PCIP - Chief Information Security Officer; Lehigh University and Colin Foley, Identity and Access Manager; Lehigh University

Web Application Security By Example
Frank Kim, SANS

Session Abstract

Organizations today rely on critical software systems to conduct business. It's these systems, however, that are often at the root of many headlines about data breaches and corporate hacks. Despite maturing software development processes and increasing deployment of software security tools, organizations often do not focus on the most effective practices for securing critical applications. Common attacks are often caused by simple mistakes that occur while software is being developed and deployed. By educating everyone involved in the software development process, including developers, architects, managers, testers, business owners and partners, you reduce the chances that your organization will become a victim of today's data security threats and ensure they can properly build defensible applications from the start.


Join Frank Kim, SANS Application Security Curriculum Lead, and learn how organizations can use the SANS Securing the Human - Developer to train developers how to avoid common mistakes and create more secure applications. See first-hand examples of common application security flaws that can be addressed through developer security awareness training and understand why application security should be part of every organizations' security program.

Session Abstract

Providing visitor access to academic wireless networks can be a daunting task. Very few solutions present a good mix between security and convenience, and can also be time consuming for users and support staff. If an institution has or plan to have an 802.1x infrastructure, adding eduroam to it will provide many benefits including instant access, encryption, and mutual authentication for visitors from other institutions. Reciprocally these benefits will be available to the members of the institution when traveling in the country or abroad. eduroam has more than 2000 institutions worlwide. In the US, we had two members in 2009, twelve in 2010, and more than fifty now!


After a career in mathematical and theoretical biology, Hanset progressively shifted is interest to computer networks. In 2001, Hanset designed and implemented for University of Tennessee the largest Wi-Fi network in academia. An important part of designing Wireless Networks resided in the access control mechanisms which led Hanset to explore authentication and authorization systems like eduroam. He has been experimenting and spearheading the eduroam effort in the US since 2005. Hanset is Constituent Group leader for Wireless-LAN@Educause, and member of the Customer Advisory Board of Aruba Networks. Hanset holds a master in Zoology from "Université Libre de Bruxelles" and a master in Computer Science from University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

DNSSEC -- Living and Loving Life after Kaminsky;
Or: How I overcame my fear and signed my zones

Session Abstract

With the fear and uncertainty caused by Dan Kaminsky's new attack vector against DNS, the subsequently mandated deployment of DNSSEC into the .gov namespace, and the political debate surrounding the signing of the root zone, the race is on to secure DNS. This talk will explain the recent events that lead up to the government mandate and will help the system administrator and their managers to understand the next steps towards deploying a safe end-to-end DNS infrastructure. The talk will provide an overview of DNSSEC, its interoperability with existing DNS, and will outline the steps required to begin testing and deployment of DNSSEC. Examples of configuration and deployment of DNSSEC will be given using ISC's BIND[1].


Alan Clegg is a Support Engineer for Internet Systems Consortium. In this position, Alan provides training and support for BIND and ISC DHCP.

Alan has over 20 years providing support and management of Internet facing systems, and as a Dale Carnegie trained public speaker, he has provided tailored learning experiences to corporations (Banc One, Jefferson Pilot Communications), at conventions and meetings (BSDcon, InfraGard, HTCIA), and as part of his job with Berkeley Software Design.

During the NSF funded rollout of Internet access to higher education, Alan assisted in the deployment of "high speed" (56k!) network access to all 2 and 4 year degree granting, publicly funded colleges and universities in North Carolina. Later, as a member of the technical staff of Berkeley Software Design, he provided training and support for the BSD/OS and FreeBSD operating systems. More recently, Alan was a member of the senior engineering team at Hosted Solutions, a data center solutions provider with multiple data centers in North Carolina and Massachusetts.

Alan is involved with InfraGard, a public/private partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and providers of infrastructure in the United States, and has previously served on the board of directors for the Eastern Carolina Chapter.

Serving as a volunteer firefighter for over 18 years, Alan became an American Red Cross Disaster Services volunteer following hurricane Katrina. He is also a trainer for the FEMA Community Emergency Response Team, specializing in CERT response to acts of terrorism.
