I spoke on Securing a Home Router at the HOPE conference on July 20, 2014.
A PDF of the presentation (v1.2) is available at box.net and on this site (warning: slow).
Brief description of the talk:
Routers are a perfect target for abuse. The presentation will explain some of the configuration options in routers that can make your Local Area Network more secure. Among these are locking down access to the router, Wi-Fi security, firewalls, DNS, and hiding on the Internet. Also covered are known security flaws in routers and how to defend against them. Some of the covered flaws are: WPS, UPnP, port 32764 and smartphones leaking Wi-Fi passwords.
