Operationalizing the MITRE ATT&CK Framework - Robert Olson BSides Cleveland 2019 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Operationalizing the MITRE ATT&CK Framework
Robert Olson


The MITRE ATT&CK framework is all the rage these days. Many are looking at this as a research framework that can help standardize many aspects of information security, particularly with respect to offensive methodology. This talk will look at the MITRE ATT&CK framework from a different angle aby examining how the information MITRE has organized can improve penetration testing and, based on preliminary results, defensive posture. I will provide an overview of the ATT&CK framework, discuss the techniques that are useful for penetration testing, and present a case study of homebrew malware written to be aligned with the ATT&CK Framework. The talk will conclude with a discussion of using existing tools aligned with MITRE's ATT&CK Framework for detection and automating analysis of log data generated by those tools. It is important to note that this talk as supported by a significant amount of student work through both undergraduate and graduate capstone projects.

Robert Olson is an lecturer in the Department of Computing Security at the Rochester Institute of Technology. In addition to teaching classes in penetration testing, web application security, and mobile device security, he also serves as the director for the Computing Security undergraduate program.
