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

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017 by narknet

Sorry for the room flip/flop. Manuel’s Tavern is trying to accommodate as many meetings as possible so they moved us back to the First Level Room (where we usually meet).

Manuel’s does not charge us for meeting space and they are very accommodating so I go out my way to be flexible.

There will be another group meeting in the First Level Room next to the windows. They have been notified that we run an open meeting and presentation.

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)”.



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.



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).

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.

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.
