Pwning Android via NFC and Bluetooth – Intelligent Defence Keynote Presentation
Adam Laurie, Security Researcher and Director, 02 June 2015, 09.10 – 10.10, Infosecurity Intelligent Defence
When I was invited to speak at Infosecurity Intelligent Defence, a new technical research conference at Infosecurity Europe this year, I was both delighted and frustrated… Delighted, because Infosecurity Europe has been a traditional meeting place for me and a lot of the security / hacking community for more years than I care to remember, and frustrated because I wasn’t allowed to talk about the thing I really wanted to talk about!
However, the organisers were very understanding, and put me in the line-up, even though I couldn’t confirm that I could speak, or even if I could, what it would be about. Now there’s faith for you! 🙂
Well, let’s hope I can live up to their expectations, as I’ve just been given the go-ahead by ZDI/Google to spill the beans on the pwn2own (joint) winning entry in Tokyo last November, in which I pwned Android via NFC & Bluetooth…
I’m not going to give too much away before the event, but suffice it to say I pwned Android hard, and he/she/it loved it 🙂 – I will do a live demo, and it will make you install that system update you’ve been resisting for weeks (if not, don’t forget to come and see me after the show so I can follow you at a discreet distance for a few minutes…).
This was my first entry in pwn2own (or any such competition for that matter), so I’ll talk not only about the hack itself, but also the whole concept of bounties and competitions. I hope this will spark some debate and to turn this into a lively discussion, so if you have a strong opinion on the subject, please come along!
Oh, and bring your Android phone…
