The Truth, You Thought We Wouldn't Know' - Wolf Flight (Terry Gold) (BSides Las Vegas 2013) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

The Truth, You Thought We Wouldn't Know' - Wolf Flight (Terry Gold)

OSINT is often mentioned, but not really covered.

Occasionally mention is made of a particular tool, but the aspiring professional is left to their own means to discover how to use the tool, or determine what information is of value.

Given a sample case, a real world person, the talk will include some dox freely available in the wild and discuss and demonstrate how some of the information found can easily be used in a penetration test or by an attacker.

The purpose of this discussion is multi-parted. By and large it will show some aspiring individuals how to go about gathering some of the information.

It will also serve as a warning to those in the audience who might be simply curious about infosec and security in general, how easy it can be to find some information about particular individuals.

BIO: James is a full time systems administrator. A former CCDC Alum,  he is currently actively engaged with preparing the team for next year. He works as an assistant to Georgia Weidman at Bulb Security, and is an ambitious, aspiring, infosec professional.
