Parasyste: In search of a host - Richard Peters and Matthew Roth HouSecCon v6 2015 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Parasyste: In search of a host
Richard Peters and Matthew Roth
HouSecCon 2015 v6

We will be unveiling the Parasyte project at HouSecCon. Using the newly released USB Armory device, we are developing a multi-threat penetration testing appliance. As a penetration tester, I want a device that I can plug into a host system that automatically calls home to me with its onboard Linux OS. From there I can use the Parasyte device along with the host system to further compromise the environment. While we,re at it, let,s have the device harvest useful data from the host. And for a truly autonomous penetration testing tool, our behavioral scripting system allows for automated attacks in offline or heavily monitored environments. Come see the latest developments with the Parasyte project!,We humans are the greatest of earth,s parasites.
