DC404 Meeting – Saturday September 15th

Wednesday, September 12th, 2018 by narknet

Saturday September 15th is your DC404 meeting at Manuel’s Tavern at 2pm

Daniel Pagan will be presenting AES Burst:

The new tool, AES Burst, breaks the traditional approach to brute forcing AES keys by taking advantage of weak key derivation.

Daniel Pagan is a senior Computer Science student at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He is a former penetration testing intern with IBM X-Force Red and during that time he was a DEFCON goon with DCTV.


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 be running the NetKotH CTF for this meeting. This event is targeted at both beginners and experienced pentesters. If you’d like to play along, you should bring a laptop with your favorite tools installed (like Kali Linux or ArchStrike). If you are new to CTFs there will be plenty of people willing to help you get started.


More information about NetKotH can be found here:

We will also be hosting a mini lock pick village.
