Hands-on Seminar:
Open-source 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. Exercises will be designed to simulate real-world scenarios and will include both general goals and step-by-step instructions for a personal and in-depth learning experience.

Agenda

· Discuss forensics methodology
· Review handy Linux command-line tools
· Survey open-source forensics tools
· Perform forensics analysis of a suspect USB drive

Student Requirements

· Students should be comfortable in Linux—we’ll be using Kali (and its command-line) extensively during all three sessions as the attacking platform.
· A solid understanding of TCP/IP and various network services (DNS, DHCP, etc)
· Knowledge of a scripting language (Perl, Python, Ruby) is helpful, but not required.
· A tolerance/desire for moderate pain and suffering.

What Students Should Bring

Students are required to bring their own Windows 64-bit laptops with a minimum 8 GB RAM installed.

· Administrative privileges (local admin equivalence is fine)
· At least 60 GB HD free
· Wireless network support
· USB 2 or higher support

(Note: We will be using VMware Player, so if you already have a licensed version of VMware Workstation installed on your laptop, screenshots in the step-by-step instructions will be close but not exact.)

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, March 23rd to reserve your seat at this exciting event!
