Summary : "Huawei routers are no longer devices only seen in China. Entire countries run their Internet infrastructure exclusively on these products and established tier 1 ISPs make increasing use of them. However, very little is known of Huawei's Versatile Routing Platform (VRP) and its security. This presentation will introduce the architecture, special properties of VRP configurations and services as well as how to reverse engineer the OS. The presentation will give an all-around view into the security of VRP based equipment."
