TRAINING: SAP Security In-Depth

Year after year, ekoparty Security Conference presents the best and most improving trainings at a moderate cost. For the very first time in this edition we will offer the best SAP security training of the moment!

Click here for more information.

SAP Security In-Depth

Have you ever wondered whether your business-critical SAP implementation was secure? Do you know how to check it? Have you imagined which could be the impact of an attack to your core business platform? Do you know how to prevent it? This training is the answer to these questions.

For many years, SAP security has been a synonym of "segregation of duties" or "securing roles and profiles". While this kind of security is mandatory and of absolute importance, there are many threats that have been so far overlooked and are even more dangerous, such as the possibility of taking remote control of the entire SAP landscape without having any user in any system.

This training will help you to fill this knowledge gap, allowing you to understand the involved threats and risks and how to mitigate them. You will review the whole picture, from the security of the Environment and the SAP application-level gateways (SAProuter, Webdispatcher), through the assessment and hardening of the Operating Systems and Databases and their interaction with the SAP systems up to the security of the SAP Application Layer: Authentication, User security, Password Policies, Authorization subsystem, Interface Security, ABAP security concepts, Component Security, Backdoors, Auditing, Monitoring and more!

The training is organized with many hands-on exercises, which will help you grasp practical knowledge quickly. You will learn how to assess the security of an SAP implementation and then secure the critical security gaps you discovered. You will be able to learn how to use different SAP security tools, as well as Onapsis Bizploit, the first opensource ERP Penetration Testing Framework.

The training also provides a quick introduction to basic SAP concepts, which allows non-SAP security professionals to follow the course smoothly.

TRAINING: Lockpicking, From Novice to Master in Two Days

Again on this edition, Deviant Ollam will present the "Lockpicking, From Novice to Master in Two Days" training!

More information here.

Lockpicking, From Novice to Master in Two Days

Physical security is an oft-overlooked component of data and system security in the technology world. While frequently forgotten, it is no less critical than timely patches, appropriate password policies, and proper user permissions. You can have the most hardened servers and network but that doesn't make the slightest difference if someone can gain direct access to a keyboard or, worse yet, march your hardware right out the door.

* The Basic Pin Tumbler Design - 90% of your doors are unsafe
* Combination Locks - open in 30 seconds with a beer can, or in 10 minutes with no tools at all
* Warded Lock Bypassing - yes, skeleton keys DO exist.
* Tubular Lock Picking - does your elevator restrict access to specific floors? Think again.
* Wafer Locks - is there anything of value in your desks, access panels & cars?
* Handcuffs & Gun Locks - physical security at its most basic.
* Bump Keying - the newly-publicized threat... who is addressing it and who is only paying lip service.
* Picking High Security Pins - with a steady hand, this is possible. You will learn how.
* Advanced Sidebar Functionality - how PROPER high-security locks function.
* Concerns for Large Institutions - master keying, fire codes, and emergency access... comply with the law without sacrificing security.
* Electronic Locks - just because there are wires and circuits doesn't mean there's security.
* Electronic Access Control Systems - how to tell a robust and strong RFID/Prox/SmartCard HID system from a poor one.
* Infrastructure Security - augmenting your physical locks and access controls with proper building design.
* Forensics After a Break-In - don't make mistakes that can result in denial of thousands in insurance coverage.
* Acquiring Your Own Tools - we'll give you a starter kit in this course, but in case you want additional tools, we will also cover the best (and most economical) sources for hardware.

Those who attend this session will leave with a full awareness of how to best protect buildings and grounds from unauthorized access. Attendees will not only learn how to distinguish good locks and access control from poor ones, but will also become well-versed in picking and bypassing many of the most common locks used in North America... convince management that a new investment is necessary by showing them yourself how the server room door can be opened without a key in under a

None. If you have your own lockpicks, you are welcome to bring them, but this is not necessary. A set of lockpicking tools will be provided to you as part of the course.

Two days. All course materials, lunch and two coffee breaks will be provided. A Certificate of Completion will be offered.

TRAINER: Deviant Ollam

KONEX will be the Event Location for ekoparty 2010!

Ciudad Cultural KONEX was confirmed as the location of the ekoparty Security Conference

Ciudad Cultural KONEX building was built in 1920 and used as a factory and oils depot till 1992. Years later it was acquired to create the Ciuidad Cultural Konex and make a model of cultural activity in our country. Estudio Clorindo Testa & Asociados was the responsible for transforming the old oil factory into a cultural space keeping intact the original architectural details of that time.

Today the complex occupies much of the old property surface with a refurbishment of its facilities where coexist and interrelate all kind of artistic expressions with the common goal of providing a cultural and artistic enrichment to the community.

This year, ekoparty will have an extra room of this incredible place.
