Course Description:
There are so many Network Security tools around like yersinia, spike, scapy, etc., wouldn't it be nice to build your own tool, customized to your purposes?
This 2 day workshop will demonstrates the usage of the most useful tools and test methodologies, but it goes further. If the tools don't fulfill your testing requirements, you will also learn how to build this kind of tools by yourself. Lesson will be taught with real world examples from our network testing experience and in the end you get tools that break a protocol flaw in 120 lines of code.
Day One
• Why do we want to break networks?
• Overview about available Tools
• Introduction to the protocol fuzzer spike
• Writing yor own spike protocol definitions
• Practical fuzzing exercises
• Usage of scapy to build your own packets
• Visual network discovery with scapy
Day Two
• Introduction to our MPLS tool suite from the code side
• Network programming basics
• Getting into the libs (Libpcap, Libdnet)
• Useful and mandatory API functions
• Building real test tools easily with Libpcap und Libdnet
• Exercise: Building a basic protocol cli
