DARK SIDE OPS 1
Dive deep into source code to gain a strong understanding of execution vectors, payload generation, automation, staging, command and control, and exfiltration.
Threat intel reports are constantly being released which document the
novel techniques and custom tooling that support real-world operations.
Despite access to this information, the industry still lacks many of the
fundamentals required to emulate nation state threats—opting instead for
“off the shelf” tooling and click-once solutions. These tools abstract
the true work required to compromise, engage, and exfiltrate a target
network, leaving an operator scrambling when the going gets tough.
“Dark Side Ops: Malware Dev” focuses on the goals, challenges,
architecture, and operations of advanced persistent threat (APT)
tooling. Participants will dive deep into source code to gain a strong
understanding of execution vectors, payload generation, automation,
staging, command and control, and exfiltration. In addition,
participants are given hands-on experience with black hat techniques
currently used by hackers to bypass NIDS and HIPS systems, layer 7 web
proxies, “next-gen” antivirus, and DLP solutions.

See what they’re saying.
Participants will receive source code to a variety of offensive tools, including custom shells, backdoors, C2 listening posts, and client-side exploitation techniques. To reinforce the knowledge provided through instruction, the modification and creation of the code is the focal point of every lab, allowing participants to take materials home for continued use.
