Training Teaser: Black Belt Pentesting a.k.a. Bug Hunting Millionaire – Mastering Web Attacks with Full-Stack Exploitation

René Pfeiffer/ July 11, 2019/ Conference, Training

Modern web applications consist of far more components than HTML content and a few scripts. In turn properly attacking web applications requires a diverse set of skills. You need to know how the back-end and the front-end works. This includes all of the scripting languages, data storage technologies, user interface peculiarities, frameworks, hosting technologies, and many more layers. DeepSec 2019 will feature a full-stack web exploitation dojo enabling you to understand the security of web applications, how to break them, and how to protect them. The training will be hosted by Dawid Czagan, expert in the field. He will guide you through every technology and attack method relevant to information security of web applications such as: REST API hacking AngularJS-based application hacking DOM-based exploitation Bypassing Content Security Policy (CSP) Server-side request forgery Browser-dependent exploitation

DeepSec 2018 Training: ERP Security: Assess, Exploit and Defend SAP Platforms – Pablo Artuso & Yvan Genuer

Sanna/ September 27, 2018/ Conference, Security, Training

Your SAP platform contains the business crown jewels of your company. However, while leading organizations are protecting their systems from new types of SAP threats, still many are prone to SAP-specific vulnerabilities that are exposing their business to espionage, sabotage and financial fraud risks.

DeepSec 2018 Training: Advanced Penetration Testing in the Real World – Davy Douhine & Guillaume Lopes

Sanna/ September 24, 2018/ Conference, Security, Training

Guillaume and Davy, senior pentesters, will share many techniques, tips and tricks with pentesters, red teamers, bug bounty researchers or even defenders during a 2-day 100% “hands-on” workshop. This is the very training you’d like to have instead of wasting your precious time trying and failing while pentesting. The main topics of the training are: Buffer overflow 101: Find and exploit buffer overflows yourself and bypass OS protections. (A lot of pentesters don’t even know how it works. So let’s have a look under the hood); Web exploitation: Manually find and exploit web app vulnerabilities using Burpsuite. (Yes, running WebInspect, AppScan, Acunetix or Netsparker is fine but you can do a lot more by hand); Network exploitation: Manually exploit network related vulnerabilities using Scapy, ettercap and Responder. (Because it works so often when doing

DeepSec 2018 Training: Attacking Internet of Things with Software Defined Radio – Johannes Pohl

Sanna/ September 10, 2018/ Conference, Security, Training

In Johannes Pohls training participants will learn how to reverse engineer the wireless communication between Internet of Things (IoT) devices with Software Defined Radios (SDR) using the Universal Radio Hacker (URH). The workshop covers required HF (high frequency) basics such as digital modulations and encodings and shows how to reveal the protocol logic step by step and, finally, how to develop attacks against devices. For demonstration they will investigate and attack a wireless socket and a smart home door lock. During the course of the workshop the communication of the two devices will be analyzed and reverse engineered. In conclusion, attacks on both devices will be developed. By the end of the workshop participants will be able to switch the socket and open the door lock with SDRs. This of course requires knowledge in the

DeepSec 2018 Special Training: Bug Hunting Millionaire – Mastering Web Attacks with Full-Stack Exploitation

René Pfeiffer/ August 29, 2018/ Conference, Security, Training

How do bugs in software get fixed? Well, first of all you have to find them. All code has bugs. Most probably, that is. Usually developers and users of applications find bugs. The history of information security has taught us that now attackers also look for bugs in software. Therefore flaws in code leading to security vulnerabilities have a higher priority for both developers and adversaries. The problem is that software testing finds all kinds of bugs and not always the important ones. Where is the incentive to go and debug software? Well, there is quality assurance, there is full disclosure, and now there are bug bounties. Bug bounties are rewards for bugs in software that have an impact on security. Companies offer these bounties as a means of software quality testing. Bug bounties

DeepSec 2018 Training: Hunting with OSSEC – Xavier Mertens

Sanna/ August 28, 2018/ Conference, Training

“OSSEC is sometimes described as a low-cost log management solution but it has many interesting features which, when combined with external sources of information, may help in hunting for suspicious activity occurring on your servers and end-points”, says Xavier Mertens, who’s giving a training called “Hunting with OSSEC” at this years DeepSec. “During this training, you will learn the basic of OSSEC and its components, how to deploy it and quickly get results. Then I will demonstrate how to deploy specific rules to catch suspicious activities. From an input point of view, we will see how easy it is to learn new log formats to increase the detection scope and, from an output point of view, how we can generate alerts by interconnecting OSSEC with other tools like MISP, TheHive or an ELK Stack

DeepSec2017 Workshop: Mobile App Attack – Sneha Rajguru

Sanna/ October 16, 2017/ Conference, Training

The world’s gone mobile. Mobile devices have surpassed the standard computer (i.e. desktop) installation multiple times. In turn this means that you will encounter these devices most definitely when testing or implementing security measures. Usually adversaries do not use the platform itself. They use software to gain entry. This is why mobiles apps are the most preferred way of delivering the attacks today. Understanding the finer details of mobile app attacks is soon becoming an essential skill for penetration testers as well as for the app developers & testers. This is why we have a special training for you at DeepSec 2017. So, if you are an Android or an iOS user, a developer, a security analyst, a mobile pen-tester, or just a mobile security enthusiast the training ‘Mobile App Attack’ is of definite

DeepSec 2017 Workshop: Hunting The Adversary – Developing And Using Threat Intelligence – John Bambenek

René Pfeiffer/ October 12, 2017/ Conference, Security Intelligence, Training

The arsenal of components you can use for securing your organisation’s digital assets is vast. The market offers a sheer endless supply of application level gateways (formerly know as „firewalls“), network intrusion detection/prevention systems, anti-virus filters for any kind of platform (almost down to the refrigerator in the office), security tokens, biometrics, strong cryptography (just stay away from the fancy stuff), and all kinds of Big Data applications that can turn shoddy metrics into beautiful forecasts of Things to Come™ (possibly with a Magic Quadrant on top, think cherry). What could possibly go wrong? Well, it seems attackers still compromise systems, copy protected data, and get away with it. Why is that? Easy: You lack threat intelligence. Security often doesn’t „add up“, i.e. you cannot improve your „security performance“ by buying fancy appliances/applications and

DeepSec2017 Workshop: SAP CTF Pentest : From Outside To Company Salaries Tampering – Yvan Genuer

Sanna/ October 10, 2017/ Conference, Training

The SAP business suite is widespread among enterprises. It is the heart of the operation, at least in terms of business logic, administration, accounting, and many other cornerstones of big companies. SAP itself was founded in 1972. Its software has now grown up and lives with the Internet and cloud platforms next door. Due to the SAP software being a platform itself, it is quite unwieldy for hackers to handle. If you believe this, then we recommend the SAP CTF Pentest training at DeepSec 2017! Yvan Genuer has something to show to you: SAP is boring, too big or too complicated? What about learning SAP Security during a fun CTF workshop? Additionally we’ll provide you with a pre-configured attacker VM with all tools required to perform workshop activities. Attendees learn how to work against
