This includes building a toolkit for digital forensics, live response analysis (data analyzying, detecting incident), preparing for dead analysis (memory image, filesystem images), FAT filesystems, NTFS filesystems, file analysis (slack space, file signature, recovery), registry, windows artifacts, memory analysis & more
05.Practical Security Architecture (Wayne Tufek)
It includes a method of designing a security architecture brings together the following: Sherwood Applied Business Security Architecture (SABSA), Intel’s Threat Agent Risk Assessment (TARA), Lockheed Martin’s Cyber Kill Chain and threat driven approach, Mandiant’s M-Trends report, Verizon’s Data Breach Investigations Report, ASD Essential 8 and Mitre’s Adversarial Tactics, Techniques & Common
06. Active Deception For Red & Blue Team (Sahir Hidayatullah & Sudarshan Pisupati)
Includes deception techniques for red team and counter-deception for blue teams. Techniques include that used in office files (MS Office), executable trusted files, scripts, active directories (groups, SPNs, ACLs) credentials (windows, SSH, AD), databases (credentials & more), host and enterprise applications, designing deception, wireless deception, identification, rapid deployment at scale using WMI & PowerShell
07.IoT Network & Ecosystem Security Attacks & Secure Design (Sumanth Naropanth)
Includes attacking of IoT ecosystems, and learning how to securely design such platforms to prevent the demonstrated attacks. Students will learn to analyze the architecture of IoT market products from a security perspective, and using specialized hardware & software tools, perform hands-on security assessments, including packet capture/manipulation/injection in wireless sensor networks (WSN) and Bluetooth/BLE communication channels.
