Sloth Posted December 30, 2008 Share Posted December 30, 2008 If you missed the amazing live streaming lecture from the 25th Chaos Communication Congress in Berlin this morning you really missed out on a great presentation. Never fear though the paper from Alexander Sotirov & associates has already surfaced on the interweb. The paper outlines the full attack (minus some critical reproduction info) of how one would go about creating and using a rogue CA certificate, that theoretically could cripple the internet and cause global user panic (ok maybe i'm being a bit to dramatic, but still). Yes i know this sort of attack has been theory for sometime but now it has been POCed (talk about one hell of a man in the middle attack). Oh well enough of my senseless babel.....on to the link: http://www.win.tue.nl/hashclash/rogue-ca/ Hope you all enjoy this paper as much as myself :) -Sloth Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
