Where:  Business Hall (Oceanside), Arsenal Station 4

Who: Scott Sutherland and Antti Rantasaari of NetSPI

Session Summary: This session includes training on functions supporting SQL Server discovery, weak configuration auditing, privilege escalation on scale, and post exploitation actions such as OS command execution. The tool includes additional functions used by administrators to quickly inventory the SQL Servers in their Active Directory Server (ADS) domains, and perform common threat hunting tasks related to SQL Server. PowerUpSQL enables red, blue, and purple team in automating day to day tasks involving SQL Server.

Mainframe [z/OS] Reverse Engineering and Exploit Development:

When:  Thursday, Aug. 9, 2018 @ 3:50 p.m. 

Where:  Jasmine Ballroom

Who:  Chad Rikansrud, NetSPI’s Mainframe Partner of RSM Partners

Session Summary: Talk to a Fortune 500® who is running mainframe and they’ll tell you two things: (1) without their mainframes they’d be out of business, and (2) they do not conduct any security research on them, let alone vulnerability scans. This session is focused on providing various tools that exist on the platform to help you in doing your own reverse engineering, followed by detailed steps on how to start your own exploit development.

In addition to these presentations, attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the following:
