Returning to Singapore with the world’s brightest information security professionals and researchers, Black Hat speakers will unveil vulnerabilities that could impact everything from the latest Android and iOS operating systems to automobiles, major web browsers and even police drones, to name a few. Black Hat Asia will take place March 29 – April 1, 2016 at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.

Some of the highlights of the Black Hat Asia 2016 lineup announced so far include:

  • Hearing the next generation of CAN exploitation in automobiles – attendees will hear the latest research on the open-source tool, CANard – known as an affordable way to hack the Controller Area Network (CAN) – which has been constantly evolving with reverse engineering and fuzzing in mind.
  • Exposing flaws in Android and iOS systems – from the latest spyware, new defense tools and nearly a dozen vulnerabilities in some of the most popular 3rd-party web browsers on the Android side of the house, to Apple’s insecurities within their Developer Enterprise Program and recent changes in security that may allow malicious attackers to more easily develop malware.
  • Exploring (and hacking) the latest police drones – looking at how these drones are being used to perform daily critical operations and diving into some of the security flaws with an exploit that could compromise and take over full control.
