GoSecure Workshops

GoSecure will have several hands-on workshops led by our security researchers. These unique and free workshops will allow attendees to learn about new industry trends and topics of interest by using a really hands-on approach


Attacking the Remote Desktop Protocol: a hands-on workshop

Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) is a prevalent protocol that gained in popularity over the last couple of years due to the pandemic. Indeed, in addition to system administrators, many remote workers are now relying on it to perform duties on remote systems. RDP is secure when well deployed. Unfortunately, it is rarely well deployed and thus clicking through warnings is common.

In this workshop, we will use PyRDP, a monster-in-the-middle (MITM) tool and library we wrote, to demonstrate practical attacks against the RDP protocol. This will enable us to understand where the risks with RDP are.

HTTP Request Smuggling Workshop

Load balancers and proxies, such as HAProxy, Varnish, Squid and Nginx, play a crucial role in website performance, and they all have different HTTP protocol parser implemented. HTTP Request Smuggling (HRS) is an attack abusing inconsistencies between the interpretation of requests’ ending by HTTP request parsers. What might be considered the end of one request for your load balancer might not be considered as such by your web server.

We will see how an attacker can abuse several vulnerable configurations. HTTP Request Smuggling (HRS) enable multiple attack vectors, including cache poisoning, credential hijacking, URL filtering bypass, open-redirect and persistent XSS. For each of these vectors, a payload will be showcased and explained in-depth. Also, a live demonstration will be made to see the vulnerability in action. Aside from exploitation, we will show how developers and system administrators can detect such faulty configurations using automated tools.

For the hands-on section, simple exercises will be given to participants to reproduce the exploitation of such vulnerability. A case of HTTP1 header confusion as well as a more recent variant with the HTTP2 protocol will be exploited. To participate in the workshop section, you will need to be able to install Burp Suite, Docker and Python.

GoSecure Sessions

Our cybersecurity experts and specialists will be sharing their insights and best practices in the following:


The Mass Effect: How Opportunistic Workers Drift into Cybercrime

By focusing on the most visible cybercriminals, our security community often overlooks the impact of massive groups supporting criminal activities. Yet, these groups act like the “mass effect”, where a primary pathology generates an inflating mass that pressures its surrounding, increasing the initial problem’s scale. This research was motivated by a desire to uncover the context and motivations of individuals involved in spreading the Geost banking Trojan, and ended with large-scale statistical analyses of behaviors in an informal online market, one of the largest out there. The market was found to host dubious activities through a hide in plain sight approach.

Vulnerability Management – Lessons Learned & Wisdom Earned

Virtually all companies today rely on technology to deliver their products or services, even the old bricks and mortar companies. Despite having various needs for their technology, a retail chain, an energy company, and a bank all share one thing in common. The patch Tuesday, exploit Wednesday monthly cycle. This talk will look at how various companies solve the patch and scan headache and its growing technical debt.

Gouvernance d’un programme de tests de sécurité en entreprise (French)

La rareté des ressources est souvent un obstacle à la mise en place d’un programme complet de sécurité en entreprise. Cette présentation vise à expliquer comment construire un programme de test d’intrusion en entreprise, quels sont les défis pour recruter et conserver le talent, quelles sont les règles d’engagements à mettre en place et comment favoriser une culture organisationnelle de sécurité basée sur la confiance et la collaboration. À la fin de la présentation, l’audience devrait avoir une meilleure compréhension des stratégies de tests en entreprise, de la rétention et la mise en place d’une équipe de sécurité.
