Sync Your Sh*t: Why it's time you paid attention to time - John Clark (ShowMeCon 2019) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Sync Your Sh*t: Why it's time you paid attention to time
John Clark

ShowMeCon 2019

Accurate time synchronization underpins the entire connected landscape we rely on for our day-to-day modern existence - what happens when the heartbeat of society is interrupted? This presentation will provide an overview of the various ways we rely on precisely distributed timing signals for our basic existence and describe some of the threat vectors that will send us back to the stone age if we don't proactively develop new solutions and approaches. Specific topics include less-than-publicized examples of previous incidents with the single-point-of-failure that 10% of our U.S. GDP relies on, the single command that could take down bitcoin, and basic network topology advice that could save your organization from being the next newsworthy victim of a hack - should be a good time!
