Security Analyst Kelly Albrink will discuss red teaming tools, techniques, and war stories in the Better Red Than Dead: Elegant Weapons For a More Civilized Age talk at the Okta Rex Talk on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 at 1:30 PM.

Feel the power to brute-force sub-domains, with accuracy, at the rate of the entire English dictionary in less than 90 seconds. Learn to fly the Danger Drone, a pentesting quadcopter that takes wireless hacking and remote code execution to the sky. And, most importantly, learn advanced red team techniques from the dark side. In this talk, we’ll share a few of our favorite stories from the front lines as well as our choice of tools for reconnaissance, physical attacks, and evasion techniques. We’ll also demonstrate tools such as GoGoDNS, the Tastic RFID Thief, and, yes, even the Danger Drone. You’ll walk away with insight into how to be a better security professional and how to ensure you’re enabled to simulate the latest emerging threats.

Partner Rob Ragan will also be presenting his talk 9Tail: Proactive Security Assessment at 4:15 PM, discussing tools, techniques, and war stories from the security researchers at Bishop Fox.

Do you monitor a stream of hourly changes to your external-facing networks and applications? Are you trying to guess your user’s latest passwords before someone else does? Would you like to know in real-time if someone at your organization re-used their password or typed it into a phishing domain?

In this talk, we’ll share a few of our favorite stories from the front lines as well as our choice techniques for continuous reconnaissance and getting a foothold on a system. Demonstrations include a framework for continuous attack surface monitoring, automatic horizontal password guessing, and a technique for defeating phishing before it happens.

These are some of the proactive techniques we need in an age where attackers have no shortage of missing patches, weak passwords, and simple misconfigurations to exploit. Attendees will gain insight into how to be a better security professional and how to ensure they’re enabled to stay a step ahead of the latest emerging threats.

The event wraps up with Managing Partner Vincent Liu joining the CISO Fireside Chat at 7:00 pm that evening.
