Kinds of risk and solutions
Due to Mike’s very technical session, all attendees are now able to find out where their credentials are stored and how easy is to reveal them. Moreover – he answered the bothering question of whether cached credentials bring any danger or not.
As a Cloud Security and Database CQURE Expert Mike also couldn’t omit the role of cloud computing in data security and how it affects our safety.
Presentation of DPAPI
What is a key takeaway after the session? You will be able to discover all the unexpected places, where your passwords are hidden!
How is this possible? All thanks are going to the world discovery made by Mike and CQURE team – how to decrypt DPAPI protected data by leveraging usage of the private key stored as a LSA Secret on a domain controller. This reverse-engineered mechanism allows you to see how password attacks are performed and how you can avoid them. That was a valuable experience!
