RPE: The Rotten Apple in the Bushel

On February 11-13, 2020, we will infect hosts within the RodinCorp network we used in RPE-003 with malware and common attacks which will perpetrate the theft of user credentials. This network will operate as normally designed with users and automated processes constantly logging in and out (of a Windows domain), administrators logging and out of services such as the local firewall and SSH and users logging in and out of applications on the local network.

Tech Talk Series: Modern Software Defined Architecture Lunch & Learn

Where an application tries to access a database, that's a perimeter. When a user elevates privilege to perform a sensitive operation, that's also a perimeter. The zero-trust model of security prompts you to question your assumptions of trust every time there's an access event. Event is on February 19th from 10am - 2pm.

The Turing Test Prize Challenge

In the Spring of 2020, this will be a challenge event where participants develop a stand-alone automated process to interact with a Microsoft Windows machine just as a human user may do with the goal being to fool a human judge who is monitoring target computers via Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) or Virtual Network Computing (VNC) into thinking a normal user is interacting with that machine and not an automated program or process.
