Sunday, July 23, 2006: 1:00 pm (Area "B"): This presentation deals with the vulnerabilities of emerging connected technologies and their uses. As manufacturers continue to pump out new technology without properly assessing the risks, those risks end up affecting customers. The focus of this presentation deals with vulnerabilities and attacks on Smarthomes and Smartcars taken from analyzing these emerging technologies. Vulnerabilities also exist in these technologies from how users interface with and utilize them. Modern connected technologies are intrusive and it is important that everyone understand the dangers. This presentation also delivers a healthy dose of problems with the next generation IP protocol, dealing with problems in its implementation and future. IPv6 will play a big part in the connected future with integration into previously mentioned technologies and mobile devices. Lastly, the presentation will discuss problems with biometric authentication technologies and refute how these devices are being touted as security silver bullets.
