Hello ASM World: A Painless and Contextual Introduction to x86 Assembly - nicolle neulist (rogueclown) Derbycon 2013 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Hello ASM World: A Painless and Contextual Introduction to x86 Assembly - nicolle neulist (rogueclown)
Derbycon 2013

Description: Familiarity with assembly language is essential if you are interested in writing custom exploits, performing reverse engineering of binaries, or analyzing malware. Getting started with assembly can seem daunting at first: the instructions don’t resemble familiar higher-level instructions very closely. However, with a bit of knowledge of computer memory and a bit of context with both higher-level languages and simple yet useful code, programming useful things in assembly becomes a lot easier. This talk will explain basic principles of programming in x86 assembly language, provide concrete examples of simple functions implemented in assembly beside that same functionality implemented in a higher-level language, and demonstrate basic techniques for writing custom shellcode. No experience programming in assembly language is expected, though some basic experience programming in a higher-level language is helpful.

Bio: nicolle neulist, otherwise known as rogueclown, is a geek from Chicago. Professionally, she is an associate security consultant with Accuvant LABS. Personally, she likes messing around with computers, playing in CTFs with #misec, singing anywhere she gets the chance, and wandering her hometown in search of fun places to go. She entered the field of information security thanks to the support of countless awesome people in the community, and she is passionate about helping new people interested in the field to find their way. She presented a talk about writing security tools in Python on the Teach Me track at DerbyCon 2.0, and has served as a speaker mentor at Security B-Sides Las Vegas in both 2012 and 2013.
