JJUG 2017, Tokyo, Japan

Our own Dev- Michael, gave a talk at JJUG CCC in Tokyo (Japan). The event was hosted by JJUG - the Japanese Java User Group. This one day event is one of Japan’s largest Java community events, and is held twice a year in the spring and fall. We found high-quality sessions on Java related technologies, examples, and lot's of interesting Java engineers working in various fields.

The effect of SHAttered

This talk discussed the research done by a team of Dutch researchers and Google. This research was the first practical collision attack on SHA1, an algorithm that was known to be vulnerable, but not to this extent. Given how SHAttered (ab)used a PDF file to force the collision it is relevant to what iText does on a day-to-day basis.
