Black Hat USA Announces Over 100 Briefings for its 27th Anniversary Event in Las Vegas


Black Hat, the cybersecurity industry's most established and in-depth security event series, today announced the release of its content lineup for Black Hat USA 2024. The live, in-person event will take place at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas from August 3 to August 8.

On August 7 and August 8, attendees will gain insight into the latest in information security risks, developments, and trends. Briefings highlights include:

  • Remote, One-Click, Breaking through Smartphones via a Non Well-Known Remote Attack Surface - This talk will analyze instant messaging applications (such as iMessage and WhatsApp) as important remote attack surfaces for smartphones, often used by spyware as the first step in advanced persistent threat (APT) attacks. Researchers will also highlight carrier based video calling, a native video calling feature of mobile phones, as a major remote attack surface for smartphones, and provide examples to illustrate the potential issues and impacts that may arise within this attack surface.
  • ACE Up the Sleeve: Hacking Into Apple's New USB-C Controller - This talk will discuss the ACE3, a powerful, very custom, TI manufactured chip, and show how to use a combination of hardware, firmware, reverse-engineering, side-channel analysis, and fault-injection to gain code-execution on this chip, enabling further security research on an under-explored but security relevant part of Apple devices.
  • Low Energy to High Energy: Hacking Nearby EV-Chargers Over Bluetooth - This talk will xplore how Computest Sector 7 successfully demonstrated exploits for vulnerabilities in three different EV-chargers during the first Pwn2Own Automotive, organized by ZDI in Tokyo in January 2024. Researchers will explain the vulnerabilities they found, the exploits they developed, and specific lessons that could be learned about Internet of Things (IoT) security.



Two- and four-day Trainings will take place from August 3 to August 6 and feature a variety of in-person and virtual courses in artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), data science, cloud security, and more.
