Discover New Tools for Network Testing & Defense at Black Hat Asia

Find yourself some of the latest and most exciting cybersecurity tools at the Arsenal, where you can meet and chat with their creators.

Every pass sold to Black Hat Asia in Singapore this March entitles the bearer to (among other things) access the Arsenal, and there’s no better place to watch experts demonstrate new and exciting open-source cybersecurity tools.

For example, “Mr.SIP: SIP-Based Audit and Attack Tool” offers you a practical look at Mr.SIP, a tool developed to audit and simulate SIP (Session Initiation Protocol) attacks. In the current state, it comprises four sub-modules named SIP-NES (a network scanner), SIP-ENUM (enumerator), SIP-DAS (DoS attack simulator), and SIP-ASP (attack scenario player).

Originally designed for use in academic work developing novel SIP-based DDoS attacks, it’s since been developed into a fully functional SIP-based penetration testing tool that you can use in your own work!

If you’re looking to add a little more automated help to your network testing arsenal, check out the Arsenal demo of “OWASP Nettacker: Automated Penetration Testing Framework.” Designed to automate information gathering, vulnerability scanning, and penetration testing, this tool utilizes TCP SYN, ACK, ICMP and many other protocols in order to detect and bypass Firewall/IDS/IPS devices.

There’s plenty of network defense tools in this year’s Arsenal as well, including “VoIP Wireshark Attack-Defense Toolkit”, a collection of Wireshark plugins which enables you to analyze VoIP traffic.

Notably, this toolkit can provide a summary of VoIP traffic, automatically decrypt VoIP calls wherever possible, export the call audio to popular formats, detect attacks/misconfigurations, and highlight the DTMF/SMS interactions. This eliminates the need for a separate software/framework to analyze VoIP traffic. The plugins are written in Lua and are easy to add to Wireshark. And, the toolkit, just like Wireshark, is platform independent!

For a bit of personal security, don’t miss the appropriately titled “NFC Scrambler” Arsenal demo. A simple tool, this Android app aims to emulate an RFID card to try and prevent NFC skimming. Identity theft is a huge problem that’s not going away, and not everyone can afford (or wants to carry) an RFID blocker card or wallet. If you don’t, this simple app might make a great addition to your toolkit.

Black Hat Asia returns to the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore March 26-29, 2019. Early registration pricing for Briefings & Trainings ends Friday, January 18, so register before then to get the best price!
