2019-05-16, 10:30–12:30, Workshop 4 (Salon du president)
A collaborative experience where we will learn basic threat modeling components by brainstorming and drawing altogether.
Threat Modeling is a great way to identify security risk by structuring possible attacks, bad actors and countermeasures over a broad view of the targeted system. Attendees will learn hands on examples of basic threat modeling concepts and how to use them effectively.
This workshop will be a collaborative experience with threat model content created with the audience. We will open the session with a quick introduction and round up of the tools that will be used: attack trees, flow diagrams and related open source software.
Attendees will be able to choose between three ways of getting involved:
- Brainstorming; give your ideas to the whole group to model on a whiteboard.
- Pen and papers; model the group brainstorm ideas and add your own.
- Computer modeling; generate resulting models using code.
Participants will collectively decide on a system to model:
- Cryptocurrency Desktop Wallet
- Internet of Things Power Switch
- Online Video Game Battle Royale
- Anything else that the group is interested in
