Developers, developers, developers.: When DevOps Fails to secure.

Presented at ToorCamp 2018, June 23, 2018, 2:30 p.m. (20 minutes)

In the last year, I’ve found some pretty stupid security mistakes. Blatantly overlooked controls, or flat out lazy system admins. I will show real-world examples of misuse & abuse, and improper data handling of passwords inside application code. When talking about the security of a system as a whole, we must remember a breech in one system, can lead to a breach on another system because of the implicit trust relationships we build to get the job done. I will cover how we pulled down 1.2M hashes and cracked them and what controls were missed, and how to prevent it from happening again.
