INFOSEC NIGHT: Certifications Open Forum

SUMMARY:  For those in INFOSEC and starting out in INFOSEC there is a small barrier to entry to some jobs.  Ok there are a few barriers but those are not tonight’s topic.  We will talk about all the Alphabet soup Certifications that keep popping up on job requirements and the best way to tackle them.  Maybe you don’t need them and you want a leg up on your resume.  Maybe you just wanna know where to get started.  Well this night is for you.  And on that note the night is not for old INFOSEC curmudgeons to come in and talk bad about certs or your opinion on certs validity.  You will be deemed a troll and dealt with accordingly.  I should not have to say that and you know who you are.

INFOSEC NIGHT: Working Group Kali Sucks

Thank you to Everyone for coming out to INFOSEC NIGHT.

We started off a little slow and with some confusion and some help from the crowd I think we are on the right track.  I am not sure if I misrepresented what the idea was for the event.  I will just clarify so we are all on the same page.

First and foremost this is a Working Group NOT a class.  This is a thought exercise and a reason to learn some stuff or find a better way to do something.

InfoSec Night: Working Group-Build a better Kali Kick Off

TOPIC: Working Group-Build a better Kali Kick Off
SUMMARY: Kali Linux is like that Swiss Army Knife that everyone has with 127 tools on it. Some tools are used more often and for the most part the rest of it is just bloat and goes unused. I am not saying Kali is unusable and is terrible, but wouldn't it be nice to have your own build that is suited for you and updates and builds things the way you like every time. No matter what you do Blue Team or Red Team you have your go to tools and development environments. I want to start building scripts and use Dave Kennedy’s Pen Testers Framework (PTF) to create something people can use to deploy their own environment.

INFOSEC NIGHT: Raspberry Pi Hacking/ INFOSEC After Action Report

Thank you to Everyone for coming out to INFOSEC NIGHT.

We had a great turn out.  I like seeing the new faces in the crowd.  I am glad more and more people are learning about INFOSEC and about Unallocated and what we have to offer.

I hope everyone liked the presentation.  I tried to show concepts and ideas through my own adventures with the Raspberry Pi.  This was not a hands on event because there are so many possibilities and things that can be done with this mini linux machine.

Linux 102 Test Run – Post event announcement

Hey all,

Earlier tonight (7/17) I ran a Test Run of a Linux class that I am developing. I did so with the goal of revealing any issues with the exercises, infrastructure, and the flow of the course.
I wanted to reach out and thank all who showed up, participated, and provided the wealth of great feedback, as well as a special thanks to Bowie for letting me use the space on Project Night.

I’m compiling and organizing all of the feedback tonight, and will get started on updates to the course tomorrow which will continue up until the release of the class.
There are a ton of improvements to make and I want to thank you again for bearing with the Severn area Comcast internet outage, and the rough edges in the presentation.

I’m really encouraged that we had a full house of people interested in the finished event, and am trying to work quickly to finish up the exercises while doing service to the topic.

I am shooting for a Final release in October

For those who asked how to donate to UAS for providing free area education you can do so through: http://www.unallocatedspace.org/uas/donations-and-dues/

Thanks again!
– Flay
