Radware, the leading provider of integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking, today announced it will present a new model for protecting against botnet communications during a presentation at the computer security and hacking conference, Hackito Ergo Sum - “I hack, therefore I am” – in Paris, which is being held from April 8 – 10, 2010.
In a presentation titled, Turbot - A Next Generation Botnet, Radware’s Itzik Kotler, Security Operation Center Team Leader and Ziv Gadot Senior Security Researcher, will discuss the future mutation of botnets. The session will explore the motivation behind Turbot, Radware’s proof-of-concept botnet that was created to provide knowledge of how next-generation botnets may appear. Kotler will also provide insight into what is currently happening in the genre of botnet attacks, as well as the future of botnet communication techniques. A demonstration of Turbot will also be provided.
The presentation, which will take place on April 10, 2010 between 11.30am-12.30pm at the Mains d'Oeuvres and will display how a combination of different concepts can be applied together to achieve resiliency to resource takedown actions, blacklist enforcement, and prevent outsiders from gaining visibility into the network.
“As hackers continue to look for new ways to penetrate network infrastructure, it is critical that security leaders share their knowledge with others in an effort for the industry to stay vigilant against potentially devastating threats,” said Itzik Kotler. “By creating a concept such as Turbot, we are taking the necessary precautions needed to prepare a stronger defense against future attacks.”
Hackito Ergo Sum is part of the conference series, “Hacker Space Fest,” taking place since 2008 throughout Europe. A security and hacking conference, it is designed to promote security research, broaden public awareness and create an open forum between security experts and the public.
