Automated Adversary Emulation

David Hunt

BSidesCharm 2019

CALDERA is an open-source application designed to automate adversary emulation. With CALDERA, blue teams can create adversary profiles based on ATT&CK, unleashing them on their networks to test their vulnerability to specific techniques. Learn how to use and configure CALDERA to run a variety of tests, ranging from small scoped and heavily scripted, to AI-driven fully automated operations.

David Hunt is a Principal Cyber Security Engineer at MITRE, where he works on automated adversary emulation. He is currently leading development of the open-source CALDERA platform, along with contributing to other projects in MITRE's internal research and development portfolio. Prior to MITRE, David led engineering for FireEye's threat intelligence division from 2016 to 2018. There, he orchestrated the storage and assimilation of APT behavioral data at scale, improving analysts' access to sensitive information. In addition to a decade in systems and software engineering, David has 5 years of experience in red team environments for both large companies and security start-ups. This time in the field has given David valuable insight into how adversaries operate in the wild. He has a passion for combining these experiences to solve real-world problems in creative ways.
