Chris Gates – Open Source Information Gathering – BruCon 2009

This is the second of my 3 videos recorded at BruCon 2009.
This is the excellent presentation from Chris Gates on Open Source Information Gathering.

Abstract: This talk is about using the current open source tools to generate a detailed target footprint for a blackbox penetration test. Suppose for our penetration test we are given nothing but a domain name. Client-side and Social Engineering attacks are in scope, but we’re on our own to come up with all the information needed to execute those attacks (just like a real attacker would be required to do). The days of running Sam Spade or simply querying a whois server for the totality of your information gathering are dead. We need to leverage all the information freely available to us on the net to build both our network attack list as well as our client attack list. This information includes network ranges, hidden company affiliations, hostnames, dns information, public documents with their metadata and email addresses for client side attacks.

Jayson E. Street – Dispelling the myths and discussing the facts of Global Cyber-Warfare – BruCon 2009

This is the first of my 3 videos recorded at BruCon 2009.
This is the excellent presentation from Jayson E. Street on Dispelling the myths and discussing the facts of Global Cyber-Warefare.

Abstract: There is a war being raged right now. It is being fought in your living room, in your dorm room even in your board room. The weapons are your network and computers and even though it is bytes not bullets whizzing by that does not make the casualties less real. We will follow the time line of Informational Warfare and its impact today. We will go deeper past the media hype and common misconceptions to the true facts of whats happening on the Internet landscape. You will learn how the war is fought and who is fighting and who is waiting on the sidelines for the dust to settle before they attack.

Jayson has an excellent book coming out called “Dissecting the Hack: The Forbidden Network
