Special Presentation: Adapting to Fight Back: How Cyber AI Neutralizes Never-Before-Seen Threats

In a world that is increasingly digital, cyber-attacks have become the most significant risk confronting today’s businesses, smart cities, and critical infrastructure. Online crime cost the world more than half a trillion dollars last year, while recent attacks have managed to influence the U.S. presidential election and disrupt the Ukrainian power supply. This troubling state of affairs is the product of several fundamental weaknesses with the traditional approach to cyber defense, which relies on predefining what threats look like at a time when criminals launch never-before-seen attacks on a daily basis. Moreover, these attacks increasingly strike at machine-speed, preventing security professionals from responding before their damage is done.

OWASP Amass Project

Today, large organizations deal with the challenge of running their infrastructure across many networks and namespaces due to the use of cloud and hosting services, legacy environments and acquisitions. This can make it difficult for an organization to maintain visibility of its Internet-facing assets and an ability to track down systems that pose a risk to its security posture. The OWASP Amass Project attempts to help organizations perform network mapping of its attack surface and better understand how its assets are distributed across the networks of trusted partners. During this talk, contributors to the OWASP Amass Project will discuss how to utilize the tools and demonstrate how to regain visibility of a large network infrastructure.

Jeff Foley, Project Leader of the OWASP Amass Project

Jeff has spent the last eighteen years as an innovative technologist and technical leader taking on challenges in the area of cyber warfare. He started the Amass project after noticing the need for robust and practical OSINT tools that aid information security professionals in mapping complex networks.

Anthony Rhodes, Contributor to the OWASP Amass Project

Anthony has over five years of industry experience as a penetration tester, red teamer, and software engineer. He has been following the OWASPAmass Project since its inception and has recently joined as a contributor to help enrich its functionality beyond DNS enumeration and network mapping.

May 2019 ISSA Chapter Meeting

May 2019 ISSA Chapter Meeting

 

Join the local Rochester ISSA chapter for its May chapter meeting.  This month’s meeting will provide a hands-on network forensics training session with Kali, a popular Linux distro used for pentesting.

Admission is free for current ISSA members and $20 for non-members or expired members.  Sustenance (likely pizza) and beverages will be provided.  Space is limited so please RSVP.

Where:  Nixon Peabody, 1300 Clinton Square, 13th floor, Lomb conference room (free parking underneath the building, bring the ticket to the meeting for validation)

When:  Wednesday, May 1st, 6:00 PM  (Please RSVP to info@rocissa.org by Monday, April 29th.)

Seminar:  Hands-on Network Forensics

Using Kali Linux

Formerly known as Backtrack, Kali Linux is a powerful pentesting platform.  Unlike other distros, Kali has tightly integrated a number of the top security testing tools available.  Network forensic exercises will be designed to simulate real-world scenarios using packet captures for an in-depth learning experience.

Agenda

  • Learn powerful Wireshark filters for quickly analyzing data
    ·Follow multiple conversation streams with ease
    ·        Decrypt traffic like you’re an analyst working for the NSA
    ·        Become the network forensics bad-ass you’ve always wanted to be!

Student Requirements

  • Students should come to the meeting withKali Linux already loaded and working.  Pre-built images of Kali are available to run for free in both VirtualBox and VMware Player.
  • A solid understanding of TCP/IP and various network services (DNS, DHCP, etc).  (Note:  If you think that TCP-IP is a droid from Star Wars, this session is NOT for you.)
  • A tolerance/desire for moderate pain & suffering is helpful, but not required.

What Students Should Bring

Students are required to bring their own laptops already running Kali Linux on VMware Workstation Player 15 or VirtualBox 6.  If you are new to installing Kali, we recommend one of the pre-built images from Offensive Security.

  • This session is Hands-on Network Forensics usingKali Linux, not how to install Kali Linux on a virtual machine or troubleshooting why Kali is not allowing copy/paste.  PLEASE COME PREPARED!
  • Windows 10 users using VMware Workstation will need to disable Credential Guard and/or Device Guard beforeKali Linux will boot properly.
  • You will need to be able to transfer files from USB to yourKaliLinux image, preferably using the copy/paste functionality.
  • If your Linux kung-fu skills are not up to snuff, you can follow along with plain-ole’ Wireshark on your laptop, but you will not be able to fully participate in the training.

Trainers

Instruction will be provided by several members of the local Rochester ISSA chapter.  Please keep heckling to a minimum.

Please RSVP to info@rocissa.org by Monday, April 29th to reserve your seat at this exciting event!
