DirectoryRanger 1.5.0 Is Available

The next major release of DirectoryRanger is now available for customers, and for everyone who would like to try it ;-). Current attacks show that quite often the topic of Active Directory Security is not on the security agenda, but it should be, and this was the reason for us to build the tool and, of course, to maintain and improve it. So what are the major new features released with DirectoryRanger 1.5.0? Here we go:

2019 – Year Of The Blue Dog…

Back from Holidays, you started the year well motivated to make the world a safer place.
However, sitting at your desk today  you realize nothing really changed since last year, and you are surfing the web, feeling a bit blue, trying to avoid that pile of emails waiting for you and wondering how you could gain some visibility on your domain in order to better defend it.

DirectoryRanger 1.1.0 Introduces Informational Audit Checks

With version 1.1.0 our tool DirectoryRanger introduces a new feature: informational audit checks. These checks do not have a severity rating because they are just “for your information” and the included information might or might not contain security issues, depending on other facts. But these checks can help to reduce your Active Directory attack surface by pointing you to some aspects which need your attention and at least require to be discussed and documented (and they might also imply governance measures like a risk acceptance).

PoSh_ATTCK – ATT&CK Knowledge at your PowerShell Fingertips…

When I recently joined the Windows Security team at ERNW, Enno asked me if I wanted to write a ‘welcome’ blogpost on a topic of my choosing… Up for the challenge, and since I had been playing with BloodHound & Cypher for the last couple of months, I first thought I would do something on that topic.

However, after gathering my thoughts and some Cypher I had collected here and there, I realized that the topic of Bloodhound Cypher might actually require several blog posts… And so I changed my mind. I will keep the joys of Cypher for later, and in this post, I will talk about a tiny tool I wrote to query the Mitre ATT&CK™ knowledge base from the comfort of a PowerShell prompt.
