Waiter, there's a compiler in my shellcode! - Josh Stone NolaCon 2019 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec <br>Tutorial Videos)

Waiter, there's a compiler in my shellcode!
Josh Stone


Hacking is dynamic, and it's hard to predict what you need to do in post exploitation to achieve your goals. After using lots of technologies, I realized that no programming environment has ever been built specifically with hacking in mind, so you're always dealing with tradeoffs. \n\nJoin me in this talk about a programming language and environment built specifically with subversive remote control in mind. It's a native code, optimizing compiler that fits in about 5KB of shellcode, requires no runtime environment, can be deployed any way you like, and yet gives you all the access you need on the target host. And to top it all off, it's built around an interactive coding paradigm that makes dynamic exploratory post-exploitation fun. \n\nThis talk approaches some complex topics, but is designed to be interesting to anyone, whether you're into compiler theory or not. Even a non-coder should get something out of it, so anyone with an interest in offensive hacking is encouraged to attend.\n

Josh Stone is a security researcher, working currently in the area of red teaming command and control systems. He's a lifetime coder, and loves programming languages. Professionally, he's worked in infosec in both offensive and defensive roles for almost 20 years, and been around a few blocks.
