iSAC General Meeting
Thursday's agenda will be a welcome to new and current members, a quick security current events, and overview of what you can expect for the semester.
We will cap the evening with a live demo.
The hacking demonstration subject-matter will be: two quick demos: the first one will involve a n00b* to conduct a password crack to demonstrate the relative ease to which many exploits can be successfully conducted. The second will be a little more advanced and will utilize the same tools, but in a different way.
Demo: 1 (beginner)
If you would like to volunteer to be a n00b, then bring a laptop if you have one (send me an email to confirm). You will crack your own computer on the overhead display--we will show you how in 30 seconds or less. Then we will show you how to defend against this type of attack, and demonstrate that the defense works.
Demo 2: (beginner - intermediate)
We will deploy the same platform to crack the password that is now defended, but will utilize a simple technique to completely bypass security. We will not even attempt to decrypt the password. (For those of you who think you might have it figured out, we won't even use chntpw.) We will demonstrate how to defend against it as well.
