How not to do DOCSIS networks

Event large 4b8aa978adbb7c8e80151f5a83c6782a12e763374ae3a042a55e7e626a64d93b

Did you ever want to have access to a few hundred thousand network end points? Or a few hundred thousand phone numbers? A short look behind the curtains of how not to do network security.

Have you ever wondered why cable modem providers don’t allow you to swap out your modems with your own?

Once you look at the network your modem (and thus you once you gain access to it) has access to, a whole new world of security mess-up lies ahead.

Join me in exploring how DOCSIS (the standard behind cable modems) works, how it’s used today in a real life example setup, how you could potentially make it secure and what implications this has to you as an end user. I will also show you what happens if you don't look out for security on the DOCSIS network and how that can lead to compromising other people's modems, private networks and telephone access.
