Find your New Favorite Security Tool in the Black Hat Asia Arsenal

From data exfiltration over FM radio to open-source cybersecurity training suites, Black Hat Asia's Arsenal offers live demos of the latest security tools.

Looking for some new cybersecurity tools? Then make time to check out the Arsenal at Black Hat Asia in Singapore next month, it’s open to everyone bearing a Black Hat Asia pass, and offers a unique opportunity to see live demonstrations of the latest open-source security tools.

Stop by the Arsenal (located in the Business Hall) and check out the “RF-Xfil: Prototype Toolkit for Data Exfiltration Over Radio Frequencies” demo if you’re looking for a new (albeit proof-of-concept) tool for exfiltrating data over FM radio frequencies generated using an off-the-shelf USB-to-VGA dongle.

Developed during Hacksmith v2.0, the RF-Xfil runs on a Linux target, feeding audio, screenshots, text, and keystroke data over an FM radio channel. It’s a potentially useful tool for anyone seeking new ways to covertly exfiltrate data (for fun or profit), and a great way to learn more about software-defined radio.

You might also appreciate the “Archery: Open Source Vulnerability Assessment and Management - 2.0” Arsenal demo, which aims to showcase how the open-source Archery tool helps developers and pentesters perform scans and manage vulnerabilities. It’s been updated with some new features ahead of Black Hat Asia, so swing by and catch a live demo.

Kurukshetra: Playground for Interactive Security Learning,” by contrast, is a web framework developed to be the first open-source framework to provide a solid foundation to host reasonably complex secure coding challenges. It’s a framework where developers can learn secure coding practices in a hands-on manner.

Kurukshetra is composed of two components. The backend framework, written in PHP, manages and leverages the underlying docker system to provide the secure sandbox for challenges. The frontend is a web app providing all the necessary controls for the admin to host and modify the challenges and for the user to execute and view the result of each of his input. A major update will be released at Black Hat Asia with a better dashboard, new language support, and gamification features, so make time to stop by!

If cybersquatting is among your concerns, don’t overlook the “Squatm3gator: 360° Cybersquatting” Arsenal demo. Squatm3gator is a Python tool designed to enumerate available and not available domains generated by modifying the original domain name through different techniques (substitution attacks, homoglyph attacks, etc.). It’s especially useful for helping penetration testers identify domains vulnerable to being used in phishing attack simulations, as well as helping security analysts prevent effective phishing attacks,

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