TR17 Training Teaser: Suricata: World-class and Open Source

This is a guest blog by Andreas Herz and Peter Manev for their training,  Suricata: World-class and Open Source

Suricata is an advanced open source network threat detection engine. The Suricata engine is capable of real time intrusion detection (IDS), inline intrusion prevention (IPS), network security monitoring (NSM) and offline pcap processing. Suricata is owned and supported by the Open Information Security Foundation (OISF), a US based non-profit organization dedicated to open source security technologies. Suricata’s use around the world and ongoing development is the result of the open source community with focus on security, performance and advanced features.

TR17 Training Teaser: Developing Burp Suite Extensions – From manual testing to security automation

This is a guest post from TR17 trainer Luca Carettoni: Developing Burp Suite Extensions

Ensuring the security of web applications in continuous delivery environments is an open challenge for many organizations. Traditional application security practices slow development and, in many cases, don’t address security at all. Instead, a new approach based on security automation and tactical security testing is needed to ensure important components are being tested before going live. Security professionals must master their tools to improve the efficiency of manual security testing as well as to deploy custom security automation solutions.

First dedicated Forensic Computing Training at TR17

I am looking forward to our newly introduced dedicated Forensic Computing Training at TR17!
We will start the first day with a detailed background briefing about Forensic Computing as a Forensic Science, Digital Evidence, and the Chain of Custody. The rest of the workshop we will follow the Order of Volatility starting with the analysis of persistent storage using file system internals and carving, as well as RAID reassembly with lots of hands-on case studies using open source tools. As a next step, we will smell the smoking gun in live forensics exercises. Depending on your preferences we will then dig a bit into memory forensics and network forensics.

TR17 Training: Crypto attacks and defenses

This is a guest blog written by Jean-Philippe AumassonPhilipp Jovanovic about their upcoming TROOPERS17 training: Crypto attacks and defenses. 

The 1-day training from last TROOPERS has become a 2-day training, featuring even more real-world attacks and defenses as well as new hands-on sessions! We’ll teach you, step by step, how to spot and exploit crypto vulnerabilities, how to use the strongest forms of state-of-the-art cryptography to secure modern systems (like IoT or mobile applications), and bring you up to speed on the latest and greatest developments in the world of cryptography, such as TLS 1.3, blockchains, and post-quantum crypto.

TR17 Training: Fuzzing with American Fuzzy Lop, Address Sanitizer and LibFuzzer

This is a guest blog written by Hanno Böck who will be running the Fuzzing with American Fuzzy Lop, Address Sanitizer and LibFuzzer at TROOPERS17.

Fuzzing is a very old technique to find bugs and vulnerabilities in software. However it has seen a new push in recent years due to vastly improved tools. The compilers gcc and clang have received Sanitizer tools that allow finding a lot of bugs like use after free errors and out of bounds reads that are otherwise very hard to find.

PoC Con Seoul 2016

Recently I had the pleasure to join the PowerOfCommunity conference in Seoul. Florian and Felix attended the conference in the past and enjoyed it a lot, so I took the opportunity to join this year. From what I had heard the conference is highly technical, offensive security and community focused (surprise 😉 ). Boy did they deliver!
Located in a hotel next to a nice park and close to the famous Gangnam district in Seoul we came together to feel the power of community. The conference was planned for two days and offered two tracks per day. Several key talks were presented for everyone. Continue reading “PoC Con Seoul 2016”
