NetKotH @ ATL2600 Meeting Friday December 2, 2016

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016 by narknet

NetKotH will be featured at the Friday December 2, 2016 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.

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.

Lenox Square Mall
3393 Peachtree Rd NE
Atlanta, GA 30326

All ages/skill levels welcome. No dues, feel free to bring new friends.

Sign up for the chat/discussion list – it’s extremely low traffic, keeps you in the loop, and enables you to communicate with the other 2600 folks:

Saturday November 19th at Manuel’s Tavern at 2pm

Monday, November 14th, 2016 by narknet

Saturday November 19th is your DC404 meeting at Manuel’s Tavern at 2pm

Arch3y will be presenting ArchStrike:

ArchStrike is a penetration testing and security layer on top of Arch Linux. Our goal is to have a comprehensive list of bleeding edge security tools. We maintain a KISS, Keep It Simple Stupid, philosophy, while optimizing the tools for i686, x86_64, ARMv6, ARMv7, and ARMv8. We constantly update our tool set to make sure it’s up to date with the fast-paced infosec environment.

Arch3y has been around since September 2013. He has built and maintained packages on Blackarch, ArchAssault and now ArchStrike.

Brimstone will also be setting up a NetKotH (Network King of the Hill) CTF.

There will be a wireless network for accessing NetKotH.

My NetKotH web page isn’t ready yet so here is a quick explanation:

Irongeek created NetKotH

AIDE 2013 – Network King Of The Hill (NetKotH) A hacker wargame for organizers
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GNBdWD9nVM

The idea is to have a CTF that takes little in the way of hardware and uses off the shelf pentest builds so there isn’t any engineering required to build the challenges. It also comes with a simplistic scoring engine. This means just about anyone can set one up. You can even build one for home use or for a computer class in your local high school.

Usually CTFs (like DEFCON) are for the very experienced and/or professional pentesters. NetKotH’s challenges are entry level and well documented online so it is perfect for the people with no CTF experience.

Those of us who have pentesting/CTF experience can help mentor those who want to give it a try.

If you would like to participate you will need a laptop with wireless access. I’ll see about bringing some cables and an extra switch if you don’t have wireless. I also recommend you have a pentesting build with all the latest tools. Kali Linux will boot and run live from a DVD or USB drive. You might also consider ArchStrike, although I don’t know if ArchStrike will run as a live DVD or USB drive. Windows will also work if you have pentesting tools installed.

DC404 Email List is Down

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016 by narknet

We noticed at 09:54 10/22/2016 that the DC404 email list was down.

The problem seems to be DNS resolution of the kaos.to domain.

We are investigating the problem and will post an update here as soon as we have it fixed.
