DerbyCon 7.0

 Hyatt Regency Louisville

 Speaking Engagement


DerbyCon isn’t just another security conference. We’ve taken the best elements from all the conferences we’ve ever been to and put them into one. DerbyCon is a place you can call home, where you can meet each other, party, and learn. Our goal is to create a fun environment where the security community can come together to share ideas and concepts.

Optiv is proud to have two speaking session at the conference.

A New Take at Payload Generation
Friday, September 22, 1:00-1:50 pm
Speakers: James Cook and Tom Steele
As the evolution of endpoint, egress, and network security controls continues, adversaries and pentesters are finding it increasingly more difficult to execute malicious payloads within properly-hardened enterprise networks. Although tools currently exist to aid in circumventing these controls, the current state fails to properly account for some of newest techniques used by these controls. Enter Empty-Nest, a command-and-control (C2) toolset created with circumvention in mind. Empty-Nest was designed to provide a flexible payload-generation mechanism and pluggable interface to enable adversaries to easily customize payloads for targeted security control bypass.

SniffAIR, An Open-Source Framework for Wireless Security Assessments
Sunday, September 24, 12:00-12:50 pm
Speakers: Matthew Eidelberg and Steven Darracott
SniffAir is an open-source wireless security framework. Its primary purpose is to provide pentesters, systems admins, or others eager about wireless security a way to collect, manage, and analyze wireless traffic. SniffAir was born out of the hassle of managing large or multiple pcap files while thoroughly cross-examining and analyzing the traffic, looking for potential security flaws or malicious traffic.
