Recently on the SANS DFIR mailing list one of the members announced he had put together a Network Forensics challenge for anyone who wanted to participate. The challenge is at http://blog.mywarwithentropy.com/2014/11/spy-hunter-holiday-challenge-2014.html where you can download a large pcap and a PDF with instructions. I’ve only had a small amount of time to play with the pcap but it’s very well done and I’m looking forward to digging deeper into it.

I recently attended the SANS SEC575 Mobile Device Security and Ethical Hacking class in Las Vegas and I wanted to post some of my thoughts on the course. Day One: Architecture and Management Day one started off with a quick overview of mobile device issues that would be addressed in the course and a lab which has the students extract sensitive data from a network capture file with mobile device traffic. After that there are four “what you need to know” sections about iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone devices. The sections cover technical specifications, key points, protection mechanisms etc. These sections are well done and provide a solid foundation for the rest of the class. The next section in the book covers building your own lab using devices, emulators and simulators. There are two exercises where you configure an Android emulator and interact with it using ADB commands. The labs throughout the entire course were very well done and helped reinforce the topics being taugh

Congratulations to James Lieu for winning the paperback copy of “Hacking Exposed 7: Network Security Secrets & Solutions“. Last week I attended the SANS SEC575 Mobile Device Security and Ethical Hacking course at Network Security 2014 in Las Vegas. It was an enjoyable class and I just finished the first draft of my index (the book for day #3 is close to 300 pages!). I plan on writing up a review of the course in the next few days. In addition to the class I was able to spend time with some great people and participate in both nights of Core Netwars. Netwars would be fun no matter what but it was made even better by sitting with friendly and knowledgeable people. I ended up getting about half a dozen questions into level 3 and finished 14th on the alumni scoreboard. While I always feel like I could have done better Netwars is a great way to see the progress that I’ve made from year to year and I felt a lot more comfortable than I have in previous years.
