Room Change – DC404 Saturday October 21st at Manuel’s Tavern at 2pm

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017 by narknet

Saturday October 21st is your DC404 meeting at Manuel’s Tavern at 2pm

Alex Kot will be presenting “Build your own free Network Security Monitor (NSM)”.

.

Abstract:

Network Security Monitoring (NSM) is becoming a must have. Both regulatory and security needs are making this become a standard in every environment. I want to go over the pieces of technology that you will find in NSMs and why some are better than others. I will explain some of the hurdles you will come across when implementing them. I will provide an NSM you can connect to. The main benefit of doing it the way I present is that you will learn how to use the tools, keep your NSM lean, and have a platform that is agnostic to Distros and SIEM.

.

Bio:

Alex Kot is a security engineer at a payments processing company. He is also a hobbyist of SOHO router firmware and Mesh technology. When I am not messing with security or wireless I am usually playing FPS on Xbox Live.

.

Come prepared to share what you are working on. Your project doesn’t have to be complete and slides are not required (like show-n-tell).

We will have a projector if you need it.

.

We will also be hosting NetKotH (Network King of the Hill).

https://netkoth.github.io/

Bring a laptop and your favorite tools (like Kali Linux or ArchStrike)

.

Our meetings are at Manuel’s Tavern. Free parking is behind Manuel’s and on the South side across the alley.

ROOM Change:

We will be meeting in the Eagle’s Nest:

To get to the Eagle’s Nest:

From the front entrance on North Highland immediately turn left, go through the dinning room to the Eagle’s Nest in the back.

From the back parking lot entrance make the first right and the Eagle’s Nest will be on your right.

NetKotH CTF @ ATL2600 Meeting Friday October 6, 2017

Wednesday, October 4th, 2017 by narknet

Friday October 6, 2017 is your atl2600 meeting at the Lenox Mall Food Court at 7pm.

Named after the zine, 2600 meetings are a monthly gathering in a public location where we chat about recent events in security and privacy. Topics discussed vary wildly. There’s no cost, and no structure. There’s a few regulars and a few people finding us for the first time every month.

We’ve been running a Capture-The-Flag event the past few months and will continue to run it again this month (serious this time). This event is targeted at both beginners and experienced pentesters. If you’d like to play along, you might want to bring a system (no lab machines this month). More information can be found here: NetKotH

Our meetings are held on the Market level (lowest level) of the food court in Lenox Mall, near the outside doors. When you enter in the outside doors on Market Level, look for the table in the middle or close to the glass with of laptops and cables. There is parking very close to the food court, directly opposite the mall from Peachtree.

Saturday September 16th is your DC404 meeting at Manuel’s Tavern at 2pm

Nathan Underwood (piratica) will be presenting “Getting Started in Amateur Radio (HAM”.

.

Abstract:

I’ve been ‘gonna get my HAM license’ now for years and, finally, went for it. It was easier, cheaper (well, sort of) and more fun than I expected. While it’s still fresh on my mind, I thought I’d share it with the group in case there were any others that were in that ‘gonna do it’ phase.

.

Bio:

Christian. Husband. Father. Hacker. Perpetual n00b. Martial arts nerd. Amateur radio guy’ (full disclosure, I kind of ripped this off from Johnny Long) Nathan’s fascination with computers began as an elementary school kid with a Mattel Aquarius computer back in the early 1980s where he got hooked learning BASIC programming and sending AT commands to a modem (he was war dialing when war dialing wasn’t cool). It turned into an MOS as a Tech Controller / Microwave Systems Operator / Maintaner (31N / 31P) in the US Army where he learned about telecommunications, opsec and infosec at the US Signal Center at Ft. Gordon and a career in technology when he was honorably discharged. He began doing technology consulting on ‘the outside’ and, after completing a number of contract positions and serving in a number network admin/systems admin roles, Nathan started a tech support company for small to medium businesses in 2002 called Cyber Tech Cafe and more recently an offensive security company (also focusing on the SMB market) called Piratica. Nathan enjoys spending time with his wife and kids and training martial arts (Brazillian Jiu Jitsu and Tae Kwon Do) and tinkering with amateur radio.

Marina Krotofil will do a dry run of her Black Hat presentation – Evil Bubbles Or How To Deliver Attack Payload Via The Physics Of The Process

.

Abstract:

Until now electronic communication was considered a single avenue for delivering attack payload. However, when it comes to cyber-physical systems, this assumption does not hold true. When field devices (sensors, valves, pumps, etc.) are inserted into the process, they become related to each other by the physics of the process. Physical process is a communication media for equipment and can be leveraged for delivering malicious payload even if the devices are segregated electronically. Sensors, valves, safety systems on isolated network, analog equipment are all vulnerable to this attack vector.

In proposed scenario, an analog pump is damaged by a targeted manipulation of the upstream valve positioner, evoking cavitation process. The final attack payload is delivered to the pump in form of cavitation bubbles over the liquid flow. We will show the damage scenario “in action” with a physical demo on stage. To make things complicated for the defender, we will forger the valve positioner sensor signal to hide the attack from the operator and to confuse operator about true cause of process upset.

The second part of the talk will deal with the detection of this attack. After all, it is a bad style to introduce a problem without having remedy. Forged sensor signals cannot be detected with any traditional IT security methods. The detection has to take form of process data plausibility and consistency checks. By monitoring health of pump we will be able to figure out the ongoing detrimental state of the process and accurately determine the ongoing cavitation process and its likely cause – all with a live demo on stage.

By the end of this talk the audience will recognize that security and safety zoning should expand all the way into the physical process (to consider interaction of equipment via the physical process).

.

BIO:

Marina Krotofil is Lead Security Researcher at the Honeywell Cyber Security Lab. Previously she worked as a Senior Security Consultant at the European Network for Cyber Security. Her research over the last few years has been focused on discovering unique attack vectors, design vulnerabilities, engineering damage scenarios and understanding attacker techniques when exploiting control systems. Marina authored more than 20 academic works and white papers on cyber-physical security. She gives workshops on cyber-physical exploitation and is a frequent speaker at the leading security events around the world. She holds MBA in Technology Management, MSc in Telecommunication and MSc in Information and Communication Systems.
