We will be able to pre-load any software (within reason) including one virtual machine for your presentation. The computers will boot Kali Linux. While network access is available to all machines, it should not be relied upon for your presentation... this is DEF CON after all. :)

Few More Accepted Packet Hacking Village Talks At DEF CON 27 Announced

CIRCO - [Cisco Implant Raspberry Controlled Operations]

Emilio Couto, eKio Security

Designed under Raspberry Pi and aimed for Red Team Ops, we take advantage of “Sec/Net/Dev/Ops” enterprise tools to capture network credentials in a stealth mode. Using a low profile hardware & electronics camouflaged as simple network outlet box to be sitting under/over a desk. CIRCO include different techniques for network data exfiltration to avoid detection. This tool gather information and use a combination of honeypots to trick Automation Systems to give us their network credentials!

Generating Personalized Wordlists With NLP by Analyzing Tweets

Utku Sen, R&D Lead at Tear Security

Adversaries need to have a wordlist or combination-generation tool while conducting password guessing attacks. To narrow the combination pool, researchers developed a method named "mask attack" where the attacker needs to assume a password's structure. Even if it narrows the combination pool significantly, it can be still too large to use for online attacks or offline attacks with low hardware resources. Rhodiola tool is developed to narrow the combination pool by creating a personalized wordlist for target people. It finds interest areas of a given user by analyzing his/her tweets, and builds a personalized wordlist.

Utku Sen (Twitter: @utkusen) is a security researcher who is mostly focused on application security, network security and tool development. He presented his different tools and researches in Black Hat USA Arsenal, DEF CON Demo Labs and Packet Hacking Village in recent years. He's also nominated for Pwnie Awards on "Best Backdoor" category in 2016. He is currently working for Tear Security.

Leveraging Passive Network Mapping with Raspberry Pi and Python

Chet Hosmer, Owner of Python Forensics

Mapping of network assets and their behaviors is a vital step needed for the prevention and response to cyber-attacks. Today active tools like NMAP are used to discover network assets, however, these methods take a momentary snapshot of network devices. By passively monitoring network activity the discovery of rogue devices, aberrant behavior, and emerging threats is possible. This talk and demonstration will utilize a Raspberry Pi and a custom Python solution to map network assets and their behaviors and demonstration the identification of rogue devices and unauthorized behaviors.
