Bypassing MacOS Detections With Swift - Cedric Owens Derbycon 2019 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Bypassing MacOS Detections With Swift
Cedric Owens
Derbycon 2019

This talk is centered around red teaming in MacOS environments. Traditionally, MacOS post exploitation has largely been done in python with a heavy reliance on command line utilities. However, as defender tradecraft continues to evolve with detecting suspicious python usage on MacOS, we (as red teamers) should consider migrating to different post exploitation methods. In this talk, I will share why the Swift language can be beneficial for red teaming macOS environments. I will also share some macOS post exploitation code I have written using the Swift programming language and contrast detection techniques between python and Swift based post exploitation.

Cedric is a red teamer who came from a mostly blue team background. His passion revolves around red teams and blue teams working closely together to improve each other's tradecraft. Cedric enjoys writing useful red team utilities and periodically writing posts that are of interest to red and blue team team members on his blog at https://medium.com/red-teaming-with-a-blue-team-mentaility
