Back by popular demand… ok maybe just because one guy asked, the Network Hacking workshop!
The date is set for June 7th, and we’ll start at 8:00pm!
We all know to be careful on coffee shop (and Noisebridge) WiFi, but maybe you don’t know what an attack actually looks like. Let’s fix that!
This workshop is hands-on, with the goal of having every person walk away having intercepted some packets and popped some reverse shells! It’s facilitated online using a piece of infrastructure I hacked together dubbed Naumachia (I’m an engineer, not a marketer). You can check it out now at naumachiactf.com
Topics we’ll cover:
- Network crash course in peeling back the layers
- Network sniffing and the world of broadcast traffic
- Man-in-the-middle attacks through ARP poisoning
- Network scanning and finding your next target
- DNS poisoning so that your too can be facebook.com
What do I need to hack?
You’ll need a laptop and the following tools:
- Wireshark (tcpdump also works)
- netcat (nc)
It’s highly recommended that you use Linux or MacOS, but these tools are availible for Windows as well. If you have a Windows laptop, you can install Linux in a VM*. Kali is the canonical offensive security distribution if you need to pick one. (https://youtu.be/FVmWMogGX4Q )
*Windows subsystem for Linux if great, but doesn’t work with packet capturing, so you won’t be able to use it here
