Sorry! Registration is Closed

The Cyber Summer Party
is BACK!

Get a cab, ride a bike, fire up your homemade self-driving car, and get to the coolest cyber event in town!

Everyone wants a built-in navigation system. And a self-learning climate control. And Bluetooth (everybody loves Bluetooth, right?). Vehicle’s attack surface grows, and us hackers want to come out and play.
Come play with us.

Among other surprises, we’re getting a bunch of vehicles to break, fuel for the soul (beer), and the famous Car-Ninja himself:
Dr. Charlie Miller.

Dr. Charlie Miller

Principal Autonomous Vehicle Security Architect,
& Renowned 'White Hat' Hacker

Currently the Principal Autonomous Vehicle Security Architect at Cruise Automation, Dr. Charlie Miller is "one of the most technically proficient hackers on Earth", according to Foreign Policy.

A former National Security Agency hacker and 4-time winner of Pwn2Own, the “Super Bowl” of computer hacking, Dr. Miller gained national attention after he and research partner Chris Valasek hacked a 2014 Jeep Cherokee and took control of the vehicle from more than
10 miles away.

A Principal Autonomous Vehicle Security Architect at Cruise Automation and the former head of the autonomous vehicle security division at Didi Chuxing, Dr. Miller focuses on society’s increasing connectivity and the opportunities it creates for harmful intrusions. Dr. Miller has been featured on leading media outlets, including the Today Show, ABC World News Tonight, CNN, New York Times, USA Today and Forbes.

Connected Car Security:  
  Past, Present, and Future

In this talk, the security of connected cars will be discussed. We’ll begin with talking about how and why connected cars are inherently vulnerable to cyber-attack including discussion of the threat model of connected cars. Following that, we’ll do a survey of different research that demonstrated attacks against vehicles. By looking at them all at once, we’ll be able to compare and contrast them to see the types of possible attacks as well as the difficulty in executing each of them.
Finally, we’ll look ahead to see where this field is heading and what sorts of defenses are possible to ensure the safety of these
vehicles in the future.

Cyber Bash

We’ve partnered with our friends in some of the leading car-security startups, and the Microsoft Garage, to give you the chance to both see what they’ve been up to and get some hands-on experience in hacking cars.

The action will include everything from wires dangling straight from the hood to fast-paced potato racing (don’t ask). If you really want to show off your skills, take a shot at some of our real-life hacking challenges, this time
on four wheels.

Don’t drink and drive. Let your python script take the wheel.

In Partnership With

After Party
