Black Hat Asia 2017:
Pentesting for Vulnerabilities

Continually testing for vulnerabilities is critical to threat detection and prevention

Whether testing manually, virtually or through automated programs, pentesting highlights routes to key data, gaps in security policy and compliance, and opportunities for educating staff and developers. Black Hat helps you navigate the array of tools and methodologies for identifying system weaknesses with the following Trainings, Briefings and Arsenal, open-source tool demonstrations:

Optimal for beginning your pentesting training or reinforcing your knowledge, Techniques, Tactics and Procedures for Hackers dissects attack vectors to provide a comprehensive overview of fundamentals and processes for securing systems and checking defensibility. Develop your knowledge of pentesting essentials including basic networking principles, web application exploitability and offensive Linux approaches. Leave with practical, in-depth experience compromising diverse targets in a protected, real-world environment, available to attendees prior and post Training. This course provides a complete foundation for pentesting novices and a refresher for experienced professionals.

Evolving attack structures exacerbate threat detection and problem solving for novice and advanced pentesters alike. Dark Side Ops: Custom Penetration Testing trains attendees to architect custom offensive tools and bypass offensive countermeasures for increased capability and defense. Stealthily maneuver through the network and build custom droppers, beaconing backdoors, interactive shells and more. Receive free offensive source code for future analysis and defense against sophisticated attacks.

With a multitude of malicious attack modes, recognizing avenues for dislodging secure information is imperative. 24 Techniques to Gather Threat Intel and Track Actors uses real-world cases and experiences in an underground marketplace to detail procurable exploits and how they can be trailed. Advance your understanding of threat malware transmission and trackability through this in-depth Briefing to enhance threat discovery and attribution ability in cases of crimeware, webshells, email lists, and more.

Auditing attack structures is helpful in pinpointing areas of vulnerability and effectively allocating resources automating threat intelligence research which can strengthen and maximize efforts. Beyond the Blacklists: Detecting Malicious URL Through Machine Learning discusses machine learning as a tool for automated testing. Researchers of this Briefing used algorithms, static blacklisting and signatures to detect compromised URLS and new variants yet to be exposed aiding in overall system defendability. Timing in threat detection is critical to response capability. ShinoBOT.ps1 is a RAT simulator for detection performance testing demoing at Black Hat Asia Arsenal. With ShinoBot.ps1, defenders can perform the whole APT scenario, from exploit to data exfiltration to protect against the powershell based attacks.

Gain foundational tools and indispensable experience with Black Hat Asia Briefings, Trainings, and Arsenal presentations March 28-31, 2017 at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
