The ever-evolving landscape of network security faced new challenges in 2023 as hackers developed sophisticated methods to exploit vulnerabilities in network devices.

This research talk delves into the latest trends in network device hacking, highlighting novel attack vectors that emerged last year. We will explore a range of attacks, from firmware manipulation to advanced persistent threats (APTs) targeting routers, switches, and other critical network infrastructure.


Our comprehensive analysis is based on real-world case studies and extensive research, offering attendees a deep understanding of the current threat environment. Key topics include the exploitation of zero-day vulnerabilities, leveraging AI for living off the land techniques, and the challenges facing organizations due to lack of visibility and nonexistent security tooling at the device level.


Attendees will leave with actionable insights on safeguarding their network environments against these advanced hacking techniques. This session is particularly relevant for network administrators, cybersecurity professionals, and researchers keen on staying ahead in the ever-changing landscape of network security.


This session will be held by Nate Warfield. Nate has 20 years of experience in network security and engineering, including designing networks for Microsoft and other Fortune 100 companies. A prolific conference speaker, he has presented his research at numerous security conferences worldwide. In 2020, he was named one of WIRED magazine's WIRED25 for starting a volunteer group providing threat intelligence to hospitals & healthcare organizations during the COVID-19 pandemic. He is the Director of Threat Research & Intelligence at Eclypsium, empowering organizations to defend their network at the firmware level.
