Foundational Packetry: Using the internet on god mode (@undeadsecurity, @blackswanburst)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

So you're a network wizard, and all your packets are urgent. You nmap, and wireshark, and you're good at it. At parties people ask to see your packet tricks, and challenge you to duels.

This is a workshop/challenge born over a beer wager between two such gentleman of networks. Chaps with finely groomed facial hair and an understanding of Braess' paradox applied to routing tables.

And what better place to settle that challenge over beer, than Brucon?

The challenge was simple, yet worthy:
Can you associate with wireless, get an IP address, set your DNS server, resolve a URL, and do an HTTP request using only SCAPY? In other words, BE THE OS at the network layer.

They didn't do it because it was cool, and they didn't do it because it was sexy (cause let's face it, it's neither). They did it to re-learn the foundations of networking and packetry. They did it to embrace the task that gives birth to deep understanding. They did it because they admire the people of the IETF who bootstrapped the internet primarily by writing and responding to text files.

Now you too, can quote RFCs. You too, can improve your SCAPY skills in a single day. You too, can make obscure packet jokes.

More importantly, this workshop will test you on things you *think* you know. The gentleman in question thought they were pen-test badasses, until they humbled themselves on the foundations of networking.

Are you ready to school these two legendary gentleman on what they think they already know?

This will be half workshop, half personal challenge. The two hosts were born out the hacker spaces, where everyone is a teacher and everyone is a student. This is simply a continuation of that ethos.

Eireann Leverett hates writing bios in the third person. He once placed second in an Eireann Leverett impersonation contest. He likes teaching the basics, and learning the obscure. He is sometimes jealous of his own beard for being more famous than he is.

Matt isn't very good at writing bios. He works outside of information security but dabbles in packets, malware and other such shenanigans when the urge strikes him. Mostly during winter, when it's colder than a penguins nipple outside.
