Methodology for Creation and Practical Applications of Polyglots

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Polyglots are data that can be parsed as multiple formats without any changes. These polyglots often take the form of files. One example is a JPEG image that can also be opened as a RAR file. This particular flavor of polyglot is easy to create and can be done in less than a minute's time on any major operating system. Others are more complicated to create and require a lot of interesting trickery. Come learn about how polyglots are generally constructed; how to look at data formats and create your own techniques for constructing polyglots; how polyglots have been used in the past; and potential future uses for polyglots in computer security.
