The Tale of Two Benches by: Peisi, Alina, and Edmund

When a car is as expensive as a house (in Singapore), no one in the right mind would inject malcode into his/her vehicle. The only sane way is to learn through a test bench. This talk will feature two benches built by the Car Security Quarter (CSQ), our journey and lessons learned. We will also describe the challenges faced when building a vehicle IVI system and how we overcome it.

Red Team Village

October 8, 2020 - Day 1

Red Team Village ( is a community driven combat readiness platform for Adversarial attack simulation, Red teaming tactics and Offensive security operations. This community is managed by a group of cyber security and red team tactics enthusiasts. A red teamer needs to be skilled in every aspect of Adversarial Simulation and offensive security operations. We can consider this as a platform to share tactics, techniques, and tools related to various domains of adversarial attack simulation. We have been organizing workshops, talks, demonstrations, open discussions, Capture the flag challenges (CTF) and other exercises at Cyber Security conferences for the past 4 years. We do design real life corporate CTF scenarios with the same network architecture and defensive mechanisms used by the organizations. The CTF players needs to do the red teaming against this infrastructure which protected and monitored by Blue teams. This village welcomes Red teams, Blue teams and Purple teams. Blue teams get to know the attack tactics used by the adversaries, and Red teams get to learn the security monitoring/detection techniques used by the SoC teams. A collaborative purple teaming culture can be cultivated.

Workshop - Adversarial Simulation Lab using Splunk Attack Range by: Rod Soto, Principal Security Research Engineer at Splunk

Abstract: The Splunk Attack range framework provides different tools to allow security analysts to test network, host and applications against a number of known adversarial TTPs based on Mitre ATT&CK framework. The Splunk Attack Range framework allows the security analyst to quickly and repeatedly replicate and generate data as close to "ground truth" as possible, in a format that allows the creation of detections, investigations, knowledge objects, and playbooks in Splunk Phantom. This 2 hour workshop will provide attendants with access to Splunk Attack Ranges containing adversarial simulations engines (Caldera, Atomic Red Team), target machines and a Splunk server receiving attack data. Instructors will provide step by step instructions on where to get the code for the framework, how to build it and how to use it to simulate attacks, create detections and defense artefacts.

Gathering Vulnerability Intelligence from Darkweb by: Nandakishore Harikumar

It’s not new for Red teams and offensive hackers to buy 0day exploits from Darkweb. In last two year there has been a lot of Incidents where Red Teams/ offensive Security researchers need to regularly keep their third vision in these darkweb portals where they sell 0day exploits and other vulnerabilities ensuring the anonymity. Zoom to Tor, Exploits were easily accessible. Threat intelligence has opened up a scope of a new extended area of Vulnerability Intelligence that need to be gathered from Darkweb and other deep web platforms. The network of anonymous groups are extended from Darkweb to the Telegram/Jabber and to their marketing side on twitter handles which helps them to gain attention from Cyber Security journalists.

About the speaker
Nandakishore Harikumar - is a cyber security entrepreneur. He is the CEO and Founder of a Cyber Security Start-up named Technisanct. Widely quoted in national and international media. He is an Engineer turned Entrepreneur. His start up is backed by IIT Mandi, Data Security Council of India (DCSI), India Accelerator Program and GAN(Global Accelerator Network). He was also the co-founder of the private intelligence firm Seclabs and Systems based out in Noida, Delhi

The Year of the C2 (Command & Control) by: Quentin Rhoads-Herrera & Charles Dardaman

DeimosC2 is a Golang built command and control application that supports multiple communication methods such as QUIC, TCP, HTTPS, DOH, and pivot TCP. We have agents that are run on Windows, Linux, Darwin, and Android with iOS to come. For security purposes each listener has its own public and private RSA key that wraps AES encryption with the agent to make forensics more difficult. Each agent also supports functionality such as jitter, delay, EOL, and live hours to make it harder to detect. We also support webshells for the times that you have an arbitrary file upload on a website that allows you to manage your webshell. You can than take that webshell access and deploy a C2 agent to further your control over the victims device. DeimosC2 also supports modules for multiple operating systems that have both agent and server sections. This allows us to collect looted data. DeimosC2 has a GUI that is built with Vue.js that makes it easier to use and supports collaboration between multiple red teamers. It supports MFA, password length restrictions, and two user roles (admin and user). The C2 server also supports archiving of the database and all log files for historical purposes which can also be replayed if the C2 infrastructure needs to be stood back up, to include the compiled agents that were used during the engagement. One of the key features of DeimosC2 is that agents and modules can be developed in any language as long as the responding format to the C2 server is in the correct format which we made as JSON to simply everything. This makes it easily extendable. It is also easy to add custom agent functions like we did after a DefCon talk released the concept of Domain Hiding which we instantly added for our HTTPS agent. DeimosC2s future is moving towards mobile as a way to highlight the lack of security around enterprise mobile devices.

Data Enrichment and Intels to automate operational intelligence by: Haran Kumar

Recent problems in mitigating cyber attacks are the threats evolving into a highly sophisticated landscape. It is challenging to address “Known unknowns and unknown unknowns”. As data sets increase in size and complexity, the human effort required to inspect dashboards or maintain rules for spotting infrastructure problems and cyber attacks. Enriching your internal telemetry and automated threat intel lookups even at pre ingestion phase of the data provides more value to the data set in efficient hunting and automates the production of highly valuable operational intelligence. This Paper talks about the automation of enriching data alerts and telemetries both at pre ingestion and post ingestion methods to addressing sophisticated threat landscapes.
