Recon-ng and Beyond - Tim Tomes (BSides Augusta 2015) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Recon-ng and Beyond
Tim Tomes

It's not hard to see the value of OSINT in Red Teaming or Network Penetration Testing, but where does OSINT stand when it comes to Application Security Assessments? Many believe that OSINT is a waste of time for pure Application Security Assessments. After all, Application Security Assessments are all about the "application" itself, and we have the source code. What else do we need? You need OSINT, and in this talk I'll tell you why. With tools like Recon-ng and resources galore for harvesting useful information about applications and their infrastructures, I'll demonstrate for you why your Application Testing methodology must include OSINT, and why you'll be short changing yourself and your clients if it doesn't.
