Look Ma, No Exploits! – The Recon-ng Framework - Tim “LaNMaSteR53″ Tomes
Derbycon 2013

Description: I’ve been on the conference circuit for the last year preaching the importance of thorough reconnaissance as a part of the penetration testing methodology. I’ve talked about the principles of reconnaissance, how to accomplish it quickly and effectively, and even released a few tools to help along the way. In my latest tool, the Recon-ng framework, the power of reconnaissance has been taken to a new level. In this talk, I am going to discuss and demonstrate the power of the Recon-ng framework by walking attendees through a live reconnaissance scenario which starts with the tester having nothing but the framework, and ends in the tester gaining credentials to the target environment. All without sending a single packet to the target network. Come a skeptic. Leave a believer. Reconnaissance is king.
