Re: Brucon 2009

Gates and Nickerson should be doing talks there. I'm pretty sure it was confirmed.

Re: Brucon 2009

Yeah, it is confirmed:

http://www.brucon.org/index.php/Presentations

Open Source Information Gathering
by Chris Gates

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.


Red and Tiger Team
by Chris Nickerson

Abstract: The world of Information Security is changing. Budgets are tighter, attacks are more sophisticated, and the corporate network is no longer the low hanging fruit. That leaves web-enabled applications as the vector-du-jour, but that well is quickly drying up for organized crime as well. As they creep up the OSI Model looking for easier ways to steal your corporate assets, they are quickly making their way up the stack to the unspoken 8th layer, the end user. So what is the next step in the never-ending escalation of this cyber war?

To find out, we must do as Sun Tzu taught. "Think like our enemy!" That is, after all, the primary tenet of penetration testing AKA ethical hacking, isn't it? After years of hardening physical systems, networks, OSs, and applications, we have now come full circle to a new dawn of attack. People are now the target of the advanced hacker, and the cross-hairs are focused squarely on their foreheads... literally. It is only a matter of time before corporations fall from the raw effectiveness and lack of preparedness for this all too common attack.

I know Gates and Nickerson are there. With Nickerson, the B-Sides tweets have been steady.

Re: Brucon 2009

I am home, what an excellent time.
I will be posting some videos on my blog later in the week hopefully of the Gates and Nickerson presentations.

What a great time was had by all, brilliant.

I really was an impressive con, even more so it was the first one, great success.

Just realised I dont think I met up with kungfusteve, sorry..
