China has become a major player in the security community in recent years. From numerous news articles regarding government, military and commercial spying, to high profile cases such as the recent attack on Google, the tools, research and hacking groups coming out of China are are high on everyone's radar. This talk will provide an analysis of the Chinese hacking community, including its capabilities, goals, and cultural differences as well as similarities. A deep technical analysis and reverse engineering of prominent Chinese tools and techniques will be provided as well. We will highlight specifics such as binary obfuscators, encryption, and specific stealth techniques in order to round out an, up til now, spotty picture about this formidible member of the security community.
