How can attacks on wireless systems be prevented?
IT security expert Timo Kasper will present two lectures on the important subject of RFID and NFC application cryptography at RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow 2017. At the leading european event for RFID and wireless IoT technologies, Kasper will speak about gaps in security measures, possible avenues of attack, and progresses made in securing RFID solutions.
For every system, there are plausible attack scenarios
Timo Kasper is one of Germany's foremost experts when it comes to attacks on wireless systems: In 2010, he and other european scientists cracked the student card of Bochum University in Germany and proved the existence of security flaws in contactless payment cards. In 2016, Kasper and colleagues demonstrated that millions of cars sold worldwide, including vehicles by VW, Audi, Opel, and Renault, could easily be opened by unauthorized persons through a wireless hack.
"For every system, there are plausible attack scenarios, especially if the systems are not well thought-out," Kasper warns. "Digitization means that in addition to physical attack, digital means of attack have to be covered as well."
Presentation in "Technology & Hardware" Forum: NFC penetration tests
In Forum 1 "Technology & Hardware" on Developer Day, Timo Kasper asks whether contactless card systems provide an effective protection against digital fraud?. He presents the open source test tool Chameleon capable of assessing security aspects in RFID and NFC environments in different attack scenarios. With such test tools, companies can put their security measures to the test.
Presentation in "Wireless IoT" Forum: Security nightmare in the IoT
In Forum 2 "Wireless IoT" on Developer Day, Timo Kasper will speak about potential flaws in IoT device encryption. Wireless embedded devices, such as RFID and NFC tagged objects, are predominant in the IoT. In order to protect sensitive data and prevent attacks, many embedded devices employ cryptographic algorithms and authentication schemes. In the past years, various vulnerabilities have been found in commercial products that enable to bypass the security mechanisms. How can companies and consumers defend themselves?
