OpenSSL Heartbeat (Heartbleed) Vulnerability (CVE-2014-0160) and its High-Level Mechanics

There was a devastating security flaw in the OpenSSL implementation of the SSL / TLS protocol (CVE-2014-0160).

The vulnerability occurs in what is known as the heartbeat extension to this protocol, and it specifically impacts version 1.0.1 and beta versions of 1.0.2 of OpenSSL. Even though OpenSSL is just one implementation of the SSL / TLS protocol, it is the most widely deployed implementation.

In this SOC Talk, Elastica’s CTO Dr. Zulfikar Ramzan walks through the mechanics of the Heartbeat (Heartbleed) flaw (at a high level), how an attacker can exploit it, and its underlying ramifications.

It is important to stress that the flaw is not inherent to the SSL / TLS protocol itself, but rather to the specific OpenSSL implementation.

Who Invented the Internet? And Why?

Nuclear war, cat gifs and reddit? Wait, what?

Who was the genius who came up with all of that? The internet is such a crucial tool in our daily lives today that we hardly remember that it hasn’t been here forever. But yeah, it is actually not that old. We still have fuzzy memories about the time before the first thing in the morning was to check email and browse our favorite blogs and youtube channels. Well, let’s explore how the internet came into existence and why.
