Protecting Your Active Directory Castle
Hackers love it when we choose weak or leaked passwords for our most important accounts. What if we could better protect our companies by preventing users from picking over 500 million known bad passwords? And better yet, what if we could do this for free?
Summoning the Password Cracking Beast
Learning how to crack passwords is fun and incredibly useful for assessing the security of your IT environment. It used to be a considerable time and money sponge, requiring you to drop a big chunk of change on a beefy desktop and invest some serious time in building and configuring it. The good news is that now, thanks to the power of the cloud, we can build a rocking virtual cracking box that can try millions of password guesses per second — all for about a dollar an hour.
Ever wanted to build your own affordable pentesting lab? Join me and my pals Paul Wilch (Project 7) and Dan DeCloss (Plextrac) as we kick off a fun, casual Webinar series all about doing exactly that!
Part 1 is coming up Tuesday, February 5 at 12pm CST and will cover:
• Creating a shopping list of components you’ll need
• Discussing pre-made kits vs. “assemble it yourself” options
• Installing virtualization software to build your lab machines on
It’ll be a free, fun, informative, and casual way to spend your lunch hour. Hope you’ll join us!
