Dexter: the friendly forensics expert on the Coinbase security team - Hayden Parker Derbycon 2018 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Dexter: the friendly forensics expert on the Coinbase security team
Hayden Parker
Derbycon 2018

Sometimes you want to be able to pull forensic images off your production hosts but you want to make sure you set that up correctly because if you don’t people might steal customer financial data or cryptocurrency private keys for hot wallets or something and that would be a very bad day for you and for the cryptocurrency community. This talk introduces Dexter, a forensics tool for high security environments. Dexter makes sure that no single person can do scary forensics things, and that the scary results of the scary forensics things can only be read by people who aren’t scary. I’ll give an overview of the Coinbase production environment, data pipeline, and detection tooling to set the stage for when we might use Dexter. Then we’ll walk through how Dexter works and do a demo that will totally work and not have any technical issues whatsoever.

Hayden Parker is a security engineer at Coinbase, working on detection and response tooling. He has been part of Coinbase for over three years and enjoys almost any project that has to do with networking or golang. Outside of work Hayden enjoys spending his time as far away from computers as possible.
