OSINT for AppSec: Recon-ng and Beyond - Tim Tomes Derbycon 2015 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

OSINT for AppSec: Recon-ng and Beyond
Tim Tomes
Derbycon 2015

It's not hard to see the value of OSINT in Red Teaming or Network Penetration Testing, but where does OSINT stand when it comes to Application Security Assessments? Many believe that OSINT is a waste of time for pure Application Security Assessments. After all, Application Security Assessments are all about the application itself, and often include the source code. If you have the source code, what else do we need? You need OSINT, and in this talk, I'll show you why. With popular OSINT tools, resources galore for harvesting useful information about applications and their infrastructures, and some new Recon-ng hotness, I'll demonstrate for you why your application testing methodology must include OSINT, and why you'll be short changing yourself and your clients if it doesn't.

Tim is the Managing Consultant at nVisium with extensive experience in Application Security and Software Development. Tim currently manages multiple open source software projects such as the Recon-ng Framework and Djsco (Django Source Code Analyzer), writes technical articles at lanmaster53.com, and frequently instructs and presents on Application Security topics at major Information Security conferences such as DerbyCon, ShmooCon, Black Hat and SANS.
