cybergamut Technical Tuesday: SS7, SWIFT, and Checking: Closed Network Evolution and Exploitation (Elkridge, Maryland, Calverton, Jun 21, 2016) A recent 60 Minutes article on extracting mobile phone information from the SS7 telephone carrier signaling network crystalized some thoughts I’ve had for a while on the evolution of closed networks over time and the security implications of opening closed networks. This talk examines that issue using three case studies: the SS7 demonstration, the recent theft of $81 million dollars from the New York Central Reserve Bank belonging to the Central Bank of Bangladesh using the SWIFT network, and the enormous but generally unremarked shift about 10 years ago from the paper check to digitized check information as a negotiable instrument for moving money between bank accounts. All three involve complex networks with both “real world” and digital network dimensions, and illustrate how authentication and trust design decisions (explicit or implicit) made when a network is first created can lead to exploitation opportunities as that network and the way it’s used evolves over time. Jeff Kuhn of Amches, Inc. will present the topic.
