4g0t your Pa55word? - How safe are your devices? [Live Hack]

Not a day goes by without some major brand being in the news because they got hacked. But how do these hacks really happen?  
Based on 3 real life scenarios, VASCO’s Dan McLoughlin will show you how easy it is for an average Joe to crack a password with $500 worth of software available on the internet. After this session you will better understand why it’s essentially that more advanced forms of authentication should be a key focus for IT security departments

What you will take away from this session

  • Brute force attack on weak and strong hashes
  • Dictionary attack on LinkedIn breached password file
  • Breach of Radius authentication and mitigation via One-Time-Passwords
