Need some new cybersecurity tools? Check out the Arsenal at Black Hat Europe in London this December, where you can see live demonstrations of the latest open-source security tools!

Taking place once again at The Excel in London, this year’s Black Hat Europe event will feature an Arsenal fully loaded with tools to help you tackle everything from repelling malware to cracking passwords.

For example, you could catch a demonstration of CrackQ: Intelligent Password Cracking, a Pytho- based queuing system for managing hash cracking using Hashcat. CrackQ was born from the frustration of using similar tools and adds some new and interesting additional features as solutions to these frustrations, So swing by and check it out.

AVCLASS++: Yet Another Massive Malware Labeling Tool will introduce you to open-source AVCLASS successor AVCLASS++, an improved malware-labeling tool that might be just what you need to stay on top of your work. AVCLASS++ is built to perform labeling more accurately than the vanilla one, and even if you have never used AVCLASS, AVCLASS++ is designed to be easy to use and support both practitioners (such as SOC operators, CSIRT members, and malware analysts) and academic researchers.

Speaking of research, don’t overlook the more education-focused tools in the Black Hat Europe Arsenal. Haaukins: A Highly Accessible and Automated Virtualization Platform for Security Education, for example, offers a highly accessible platform for security education, affording you room to try out ethical hacking and penetration testing using Kali Linux through a browser. It makes it possible to conduct trainings for even large groups without the need for installing virtual environments or other tools; the participants can work on their own laptops through their web browser of choice, and have access within a couple of minutes.

Find further details on these and many other cool tools in the Arsenal lineup for Black Hat Europe, which returns to The Excel in London December 2-5, 2019. For more information on what’s happening at the event and how to register, check out the Black Hat website.
