:: Sim city

Smart City represents a romantic and close vision of future. Intelligent meters or traffic control systems are some of the technologies, which, once connected and adapted in each city zone, will be able to change it to the “smart city”, providing valuable information like traffic status, free parking spots, air quality, etc. In this presentation, we will show the IoT ecosystem of some cities as well as the electronics used. We will also analyze ways of attack, exploitation and post- exploitation.

:: Hacking with stegomalware. Real threat?

Steganography is a science as old as the human need to protect their secrets. For years- if not centuries- this used to be a very elite, even mystique science linked to the world of politics and military. Many researchers see it as a kind of a peculiar technique, which does not have a great impact on how we protect our daily communication or its link to the information systems security. In this paper, we will summarize most interesting techniques of stenography that can be used not only to hide malware but also to run it. We will see examples of different antivirus solutions responding on different platforms.

Our Workshops

Node: Road to Ninja!

This workshop will be fundametally hands-on, every concept and topic will have its own snippet of code to follow along. We will learn how to design interfaces and build API's (Express / Hapi), database integration (NoSQL and real-time), deployment in Heroku, and how to integrate all this in a “build system”. Our goal and focus it to learn about architecture, abstract problems and have a global vision about the posibilities and design pattern when building complex systems.

  • Node, history and architecture
  • Design patterns
  • Web services and APIS
  • Security
  • Performance

Pentesting with Metasploit... and more!!

We will demonstrate how to configure and use Metasploit, how to combine it with other pentesting techniques and tools, how to save the results of our PenTests in a database, how to pull the most out of the Meterpreter and its extensions, how to swing from one host to the rest of the LAN, etc. This workshop will show the power of Metasploit during a Pentest, as well as how to use not only one console but other important tools that incorporate Framework that can be combined with different hacking techniques.

Profundizaremos bastante en el uso de 'Meterpreter', utilizando las sesiones como 'gateway' para pivotar en la red interna, utilizaremos extensiones como 'Incongnito' o 'Mimikatz' en entornos windows para escalar privilegios dentro del directorio Activo, mostraremos como funciona el ataque 'PassTheHash', como escalar privilegios en un Windows 7 con UAC activado utilizando 'BypassUAC' y como utilizar nuestra sesión activa para capturar tráfico de red entre otras cosas. Para mostrar todo lo anterior contaremos con un laboratorio formado por maquinas virtuales que simularán una completa red corporativa que los asistentes deberán atacar.
