Pass the Apple Sauce: Mac OS X Security Automation for Windows-focused Blue Teams - Brian Satira BSides Columbus Ohio 2018 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Pass the Apple Sauce: Mac OS X Security Automation for Windows-focused Blue Teams
Brian Satira
BSides Columbus Ohio 2018

What do you do about that handful of Mac systems on your Windows enterprise network? Blog posts and articles abound of OS X exploits and rootkits on the rise. That small number of Mac systems can yield a foothold or even access to “crown jewels” for an attacker. Our talk is for anyone who needs a quick-start guide and tool set for OS X security automation, especially in the context of a Windows enterprise network. We will discuss how to leverage scripts, open-source security tools, and automation to achieve better hardening and visibility of OS X endpoints in your environment. We want to share our code and experiences to help foster a stronger community of interest among Windows focused teams to close this often overlooked gap in defenses.

We are a security guy and a sysadmin working together to defend a mid-sized Windows enterprise environment with a sprinkling of Mac users and limited resources. A deluge of Suricata alerts for signature "GPL RPC portmap proxy attempt UDP” led us to a developer’s Mac laptop and a practical curiosity about OS X security. Brian Satira is a malware analyst and CISSP, with eight years of experience in security, who likes to solve problems--usually by doing things the stupid hard way so others can learn from his mistakes. Brian has spoken before at FloCon and BloomCon. Nicholas Marple is a system administrator and aspiring infosec professional who enjoys building tools and the challenge of securing systems from attackers. *If Nick is available he may attend to speak or simply attend for moral support if tag-teams aren't allowed.
