Big Bang Theory: The Evolution of Pentesting High Security Environments

This presentation focuses on pentesting high security environments, new ways of identifying/bypassing common security mechanisms, owning the domain, staying persistent, and ex-filtrating critical data from the network without being detected. The term Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) has caused quite a stir in the IT Security field, but few pentesters actually utilize APT techniques and tactics in their pentests.

This presentation picks up where Joe left off in last year’s Def Con presentation “You Spent All That Money And You Still Got Owned” and takes it to the next level. Joe will also be releasing a new tool as well.
