Quantify your hunt: not your parents’ red teaming - Devon Kerr (BSidesCharm 2018) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Quantify your hunt: not your parents’ red teaming

Devon Kerr

BSidesCharm 2018

The security marketplace is saturated with product claims of detection coverage that have been almost impossible to evaluate, all while intrusions continue to make headlines. To help organizations better understand what detections a commercial or open source technology platform provides, a framework is necessary to measure depth and breadth of coverage. This presentation builds upon the MITRE ATT&CK framework by explaining how to measure coverage and quality of ATT&CK while demonstrating open source red team tools and automation that generate artifacts of post-exploitation. The community of security professionals and the organizations for which they work will gain new or improved abilities to measure detection capabilities. Finally, this presentation will articulate a call to action for the industry: adopt this common language that describes these detection capabilities in a tangible and quantifiable way.

Devon Kerr is a principal researcher for Endgame R&D, designing and implementing detection and response capabilities for the Endgame platform. Prior to joining Endgame, Mr. Kerr spent more than 6 years responding to intrusions at Mandiant (A FireEye Company). Roberto Rodriquez is a Senior Threat Hunter at SpecterOps where he specializes in the development of analytics to detect advanced adversaries techniques. He is also the author of several open source projects, such as the Threat Hunter Playbook and HELK, to aid the community development of techniques and tooling for hunting campaigns.
