The world's only security summit held at a production brewery.

Join some of the world's best security researchers as they talk about advanced RE tools, techniques and sophisticated malware at the only computer security event held at a production brewery.  Attendance is limited to 100 to keep the Security Summit small and encourage conversation between speakers, attendees, and sponsors.

Tickets include breakfast, lunch, and an awesome time to chat with fellow security experts.

Come participate in the talks, the conversation, and the beer!

asm2vec: Binary Learning for Vulnerability Discovery


Sophia d’Antoine is a Senior Security Researcher at Trail of Bits. She has spoken and keynoted at more than a dozen global security conferences worldwide and sits on the program committee for USENIX WOOT.

Her current work involves developing novel tooling to assist in research and discovery of vulnerabilities in a spectrum of targets; including Ethereum smart contracts.

A graduate of RPI, Sophia earned her MS on exploiting CPU optimizations. While at RPI, Sophia helped create and teach Modern Binary Exploitation.


This talk will present a novel application of a machine learning model and a corresponding tool, asm2vec, for vulnerability discovery.  Treating both program disassembly as a natural language, we construct embeddings of identifiers at scale using a concept similar to word2vec, in which the output is a vector of related identifiers and their proximity.

Identifiers in assembly vary but for this talk include: function contexts, variables, data flow, memory cells, and operations of interest (reads and writes). Unique tokens or features are extracted from these identifiers and mapped into a co-occurrence matrix. This matrix is then used to train our model and produce embeddings. The trained model will then be used to maps identifiers, and their vector associations, to bug patterns but even more simply, to discover code anomalies which may be of interest.  

This work builds on top of Facebook’s StarSpace project as well as Tensorflow’s Swivel to calculate the co-occurrence matrix.

It only seems fitting...

That the world's only security summit held at a production brewery be held at Jailbreak Brewing Company.  Jailbreak Brewing Company was founded by computer security professionals looking to liberate themselves from cubicle jobs and to create a product that helps free you from whatever drama is present in your life.

While some of the world's finest security researchers are talking about security topics, our brew team will be hard at work on the other side of the gigantic window making the next batch of creative juice for your enjoyment.  During breaks in the summit, tours of the brewery will be given to those who want to see the magic happening.

Our tasting room provides the perfect venue for creative discussion over some cold, fresh beer.
