The following lecture will cover very advanced techniques and trade craft of subversive multi-vector threat's (SMT's) and advanced persistent threats (APTs) by two of the world's leading experts in this specific field. It is important to understand that APT's have a long history and though typically not talked about unless you are dealing with Governments, Defense Industrial Base (DIB), research organizations and global financials are all too real. The techniques and tradecraft associated are so mature and diverse, they literally go undetected. Today’s Internet is far more complex, dynamic and diverse than ever before. Because of this fast-paced evolution within the threat landscape these types of attacks (as we predicted in a recent lecture at ToorCon in October 2009 in San Diego, Ca), have swiftly become mainstream. The telemetry of the attack surface knows no bounds and includes any mediums necessary for the completing their operational charter and missions. In most instances, these attacks are sponsored by nation state and sub-national entities either politically or economically motivated. During our discussion, we will address the history and psychology of these cyber actors as it relates to APTs and while advancing in an in-depth discussion on SMT's, crypto-virology, asymmetric forms of information gathering, recent use cases and next generation countermeasures for detecting and defending these types of attacks. Lastly, as we predicted last fall on the rise of the APT's into the mainstream, we will also leave you with yet another prediction of what to expect in the coming year.
