27/07/2016 – Talk by Marco Squarcina

Title:  Relation on ongoing PhD program
Time: 14:00
Location: Acadia Lab
Type: Research Result
Speaker: Marco Squarcina

The aim of this talk is to briefly report on my ongoing research activities. After presenting the accepted and in-progress papers, I will focus on the results achieved during the internship at Cryptosense in Paris where I carried out the analysis of several Java keystores (storage facilities for cryptographic keys and certificates) exposing
design and implementation weaknesses. I am currently investigating on the cracking-resistance of the keystores against brute force attacks and I plan to support my findings by implementing password cracking plugins for popular tools such as jtr or hashcat.
