THE EXPLOIT LABORATORY: BLACK BELT
SAUMIL SHAH, Net-Square | Oct 14-15
The Exploit Laboratory: Black Belt is an intense two-day course carefully crafted to provide students a practical hands-on approach to exploiting modern day operating systems. The focus of the class is to bring participants up to speed on the complexities of exploit writing required for defeating modern exploit mitigation techniques.
Topics covered in the class include exploiting use-after-free bugs, return oriented programming (ROP), advanced heap spraying, and Pwn2Own style exploitation using leaked pointers and dynamic ROP chains. Class examples include browser exploitation, PDF, and Flash exploits.
To add extra punch, we are introducing an all new section on exploits on 64-bit architectures. This is one class you don't want to miss!
As with the popular Exploit Laboratory, all topics are delivered in a down-to-earth, learn-by-example methodology. The same trainers who brought you "The Exploit Laboratory" for over 10 years have been working hard in putting together advanced material based on past feedback.

- Bug Hunters, who want to write exploits for all the crashes they find
- Members of military or government cyberwarfare units
- Members of reverse engineering research teams
- Pen-testers, security analysts, and security auditors, who want to take their skills to the next level and write their own exploits instead of borrowing them.
- People frustrated at software to the point they want to break it!
- MUST HAVE PRIOR EXPLOIT WRITING EXPERIENCE -OR- HAVE TAKEN ANY PREVIOUS EXPLOIT LABORATORY/EXPLOIT DEVELOPMENT TRAINING
