Black Hat USA 2016 - Presentation Video
Larger organisations are using VoIP within their commercial services and corporate communications and the take up of cloud based Unified Communications (UC) solutions is rising every day. However, response teams and security testers have limited knowledge of VoIP attack surfaces and threats in the wild. Due to this lack of understanding of modern UC security requirements, numerous service providers, larger organisations and subscribers are leaving themselves susceptible to attack. Current threat actors are repurposing this exposed infrastructure for botnets, toll fraud etc.
The talk aims to arm response and security testing teams with knowledge of cutting-edge attacks, tools and vulnerabilities for VoIP networks. Some of the headlines are: attacking cloud based VoIP solutions to jailbreak tenant environments; discovering critical security vulnerabilities with the VoIP products of major vendors; exploiting harder to fix VoIP protocol and service vulnerabilities; testing the security of IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) services; and understanding the toolset developed by the author to discover previously unknown vulnerabilities and to develop custom attacks. In addition, the business impact of these attacks will be explained for various implementations, such as cloud UC services, commercial services, service provider networks and corporate communication. Through the demonstrations, the audience will understand how can they secure and test their communication infrastructure and services. The talk will also be accompanied by the newer versions of Viproy and Viproxy developed by the author to operate the attack demonstrations.
