Virtual BSides Huntsville presented by NAC-ISSA!

About BSides

The fun and cheap way to earn CEU's Instead of paying way too much to listen to some guy in a suit try and sell you something, you can pay just a few bucks to hear actual programmers and hackers talk about the unfiltered side of Cybersecurity.

Instead of trying to think of questions that will expose the salesperson as a fraud, you can have interesting exchanges with people that have actually gained access to high security facilities.

BSides Huntsville is the conference for those that work in the trenches of Cybersecurity. This is the opportunity for you to engage in fierce discussions about the next big ideas or the worst product you've ever seen, but in a friendly and informal setting.

Professionally Evil Network Testing class (3-4 hours) taught by Alex Rodriguez


This is a condensed version of our 3 day Professionally Evil Network Test (PENT) class; a hands-on course that teaches attendees a robust methodology for network penetration testing and an introduction to the tools and processes used to test networks. Students will walk through the phases of Reconnaissance, Mapping, Discovery, Exploitation, and Post-Exploitation with demonstrations of various tools and tactics used in each phase. The course is heavily focused on hands-on labs so that attendees have the opportunity to actually use common tools and techniques. By the end of the training, students will understand the structure of a penetration test and have the experience necessary to begin practicing the demonstrated toolsets.

Professionally Evil Application Security class (3-4 hours) taught by Ochaun Marshall


The Professionally Evil Application Security (PEAS) course is designed to teach developers, IT professionals, and penetration testers of all skill levels. This course focuses on the techniques used to assess and exploit applications; including web and mobile applications, APIs, and HTTP-based systems. We combine these techniques with explanations of the risks exposed and defenses required to improve the security of your organization. The course uses a large number of hands-on exercises to reinforce the techniques and understanding an attendee will gain so that they benefit on the very first day back to work. The course focuses on manual techniques for discovery and exploitation while teaching an industry-standard methodology of reconnaissance, mapping, discovery, and exploitation. This methodology provides a comprehensive standard for assessing applications and APIs. This is also a condensed version of our normal 3 day class.

Introduction to People OSINT/Missing People Powered by The OSINTION

This course, taught by a member of the winning team at the DEFCON 28 OSINT Search party, is designed to hone specifically in on the processes and tools used to perform "People OSINT" in situations where investigators are seeking to find missing people, some of which do not want to be found. This focuses on validating the information discovered and using it to pivot to valuable information, in both a CTF setting (such as Trace Labs' CTFs - and law enforcement. In brief, this course covers the following:

Social Media
OSINT Processes and Cycles
TraceLabs categories
Case Studies

A simulated CTF where the class collaboratively works to try to find an actual missing person (The primary reason that this course is not ever recorded)
