Windows Event Logs - Zero to Hero - Nate Guagenti & Adam Swan Bloomcon 2017 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Windows Event Logs - Zero to Hero
Nate Guagenti & Adam Swan

Bloomcon 2017

This talk will demonstrate how a security analyst(s) can leverage existing Microsoft Windows features to monitor Windows Event Logs across their domain. Several examples will be provided to show how an analyst can leverage Windows Event logs to detect persistence mechanisms (scheduled tasks), Windows AD modifications and backdoors, malicious PowerShell, and more. This talk is separate from the many Sysinternals Sysmon presentations because it focuses on auditing capabilities available without installing extra clients. Additionally, the existing auditing capabilities can be used to detect security events that Sysmon can not. For instance, "SeEnableDelegationPrivilege" AD privilege shown by @harmj0y post https://www.harmj0y.net/blog/activedirectory/the-most-dangerous-user-right-you-probably-have-never-heard-of/

Adam and Nate work within the Department of Defense as contractors. They have experience in many different areas such as reverse engineering, network forensics, incident response, and network security engineering for 40Gbps+ networks.
