Taming Skynet: Using the Cloud to Automate Baseline Scanning Derbycon 2012 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Taming Skynet: Using the Cloud to Automate Baseline Scanning
Derbycon 2012

The “cloud” has to be good for something, right? There’s a lot of very smart people spending a lot of time and money building incredibly powerful, scaleable cloud services. Let’s tap into that power and use it to our advantage.

Inspired by the Blue Team talk given by Mick Douglas at DerbyCon 2011, this talk concentrates on how to obtain a baseline for your network from the outside using
both the cloud and automation. We’ll spend a short amount of time identifying what a baseline is and why we need it. Then we’ll delve into how we can use the cloud to automate the process and deliver a useful set of reports we can
actually act on. Finally, we’ll take a look at a tool written for this express purpose and find out how we can get our hands on it.
Speaker(s):

Jason Frisvold

Jason Frisvold is currently employed as a Senior Network Engineer at Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania. Prior to his current position, he spent 15
years in the ISP business working for a variety of small and large companies. He has a wide variety of interests including programming, network design, security, and gaming.
