Preventing credential theft & lateral movement after initial compromise.
You’ve done the patch work, you have good perimeter defenses, and even application whitelisting, however, an attacker has found themselves on an end-user machine. For most networks, once an attacker has gained access the game is usually over quickly for the blue team. In this session, I will discuss several techniques used by attackers to find additional credentials and laterally move about and how to prevent them. Implementing these changes will slow down escalation and lateral movement and credential theft to provide an opportunity for detection and subsequent response.

Fun with One Line of Powershell
This talk shows how to use one line of PowerShell in different ways to get meterpreter on a system. Beginning with the creation of a malicious ps1 file using msfvenom, starting a handler, and hosting the malicious ps1 for targets to download. Once the target runs the one liner, it'll download and execute the malicious ps1 file giving you a meterpreter session. I then go over different ways to get targets to run the one liner using a Teensy, a shortcut on a network share, a macro enabled spreadsheet, a misconfigured mssql server (blank SA), and using ysoserial to exploit vulnerable java deserialization functionality.

Better life through Models
Models play a major role in our lives - we start using them as an infant to understand everything from motor skills to social constructs, and continue using them throughout our lives as we develop. We will look at the impact models can have on skills development, security program development, and even dealing with/planning for/analyzing specific threat scenarios. To do this we'll dive into the good and bad of various models at work in the industry today, have a few laughs, and discuss the characteristics that make said models valuable from different angles.

Learning From Pirates of the Late 1600s - The first APT
"In an effort of general threat intelligence I sought to understand what understanding of other criminals could be applied to cyber criminals. What I found was startlingly useless. The difference between our adversaries and traditional criminals is not simply modernity. The dynamics and incentives underlying these advanced actors is fundamentally different from traditional thieves or even organized crime. The closest comparison I have found is the pirates of the late 1600s.

Pirate companies share a similar distinction - roaming the seas instead of cyberspace and sailing through significant gaps in international law. They organized together but did so by inventing democratic organization more advanced than the world had seen before. These pirate companies, forced to innovate or die, turned into some of the most progressive companies the world had ever seen. There is a lot of learn from this stunning level of innovation. Drawing from history we can also examine which strategies were successful in stopping pirates - and which failed"

Playing Doctor: Lessons the Blue Team can Learn from Patient Engagement
At CircleCityCon 2015 in the presentation “Turn Your Head and Cough”, Nathaniel "Dr. Whom" Husted compared security architecture assessments to being a physician. The similarities run deep. Doctors struggle with patient compliance, complex and unclear problems, time and resource pressures, and succeed only when others carry out their recommendations. Doctors struggle all the time. In this session, we explore the field of patient engagement and discuss how doctors are trained to drive patient behavior. We will cover the metrics and reporting used to determine patient engagement. And at each step along the way, lessons will be shared for applying these ideas to information security. So the next time you present an IT compliance report, the next time you share your findings from a penetration test, or the next time you tell developers their code is weak, you’ll be ready to drive behavior and get results by playing doctor.

The Art of Bit-Banging: Gaining Full Control of (Nearly) Any Bus Protocol
Most buses have dedicated hardware that a system uses to communicate with attached devices. This hardware generates the appropriate waveforms to implement the bus' protocol. Bit-Banging is the set of techniques that allows one to generate these waveforms directly from software using little to no extra hardware.

Controlling these waveforms from software has many advantages:
-Protocol Violations - transmitting sequences on the bus that the hardware would not normally permit opens up a whole new vector for attacking a system.
-Monitoring - passively observe traffic going across a bus, good for reverse engineering, and debugging.
-Packet Injection/Suppression - waiting until a device sends a packet, stopping the packet in its tracks, writing your own in its place.
-Access Non-Standard Protocols - some devices use proprietary protocols for which there is no standard hardware to interface to it.

This paper presents the primitive operations used for bit-banging, introduces some of the common strategies involved, looks at some of the common pitfalls encountered, and gives an overview of some advanced techniques that can be used when software is not fast enough to meet the required protocol.

As current students at the very beginning of building our careers in computer security, we will share what it has been like to start learning the difference between our preconceived expectations and the actual reality of the career options available to us as we prepare to graduate.

This talk will center on a project that has been active since July 2015, which involves attempting to understand internal North Korean conditions through the use of nmap and masscan, and the scanning of the entire North Korean IP range. In the process of undertaking this project not only was some interesting information gathered about North Korean internal political practices, postures and responses to crisis, but also a significant amount was learned about port scanning hostile and well defended networks, as well as learning a little bit about code on the side. In this presentation the lessons learned and the challenges encountered will be reviewed within the wider discussion of the importance of the use of technical tools to understand the world outside of the technical realm.

Bridging the Gap or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying, and Love the Developers
The relationship between security professional, and developers often seems adversarial. In this presentation I will be discussing the problems, work-flows and end-goals from the developer and security professional's viewpoint.

I will discuss in depth, the pressures and business needs that often drives development cycles. We'll also be talking about the mind-set of the successful developers you can easily win over, how to do it, and how to expand this to all development teams.

We Security Professionals are also not without fault. Our approach of tracking issues, and throwing tools at the problem just isn't working. I'll be talking about my experiences within different organizations, and how minor adjustments can gain wider acceptance and appreciation for security teams within the organization.

It is hoped by spreading understanding what drives a developer's mindset, as well as the development process, we as security professionals can help them, and ourselves. In outlining the problem, as well as filling in the gaps for those who lack development experience, we can bring security and development onto one team.

Gamify Security Awareness: Failure to Engage is Failure to Secure
We call it security awareness training, but all we ever give our employees is regurgitated knowledge. Their passwords suck, public wifi is bad, and email is deceiving.

Closing Keynote - The Night Begins to Shine - Intrinsic Detection Capabilities
Attack patterns are something that when it occurs is extrinsic (not natural) behavior in a computer ecosystem. Understanding what attack patterns look like and building an understanding of how to detect them with what you already have is possible. Most preventative technology tries in some extent to detect extrinsic behavior in an environment but falls short because of the continual changes in attack patterns and commoditized detection. This talk dives into looking at what you already have in your infrastructure that you can use for intrinsic (natural) detection capabilities that doesn't rely on a specific signature, but more so on how attackers go after an organization. As an industry, we need to be detecting the extrinsic occurrences in our networks which exhibit abnormal behavior. During this presentation, we'll be covering a large percentage of techniques used by attackers, and how to detect them with what you currently have in place at your organization today.
