BSidesDFW 2022 Training Day, The Real Deal

Posted by isac on 17 Oct 2022

We have the trainings!
It is with great honor and privelege that we can present to you, the following sessions:

Threat Modeling for Everyone by @Ell_o_Punk / Sponsored by Grimm Cyber / @GRIMMCyber
Threat modeling is a critical aspect of secure application development and a major part of the DevOps methodology's "Plan" phase. This course will familiarize individuals with the predominant Threat modeling frameworks using hands-on activities in order to drive home the importance of performing Threat Modeling very early in the DevOps process, allowing teams to avoid costly patching or even redevelopment later in an application's life cycle.

Python Code Reading by @count3rmeasure
Reading computer languages, "code", is different than reading traditional written languages and different from writing the code originally. Ask any developer to review their own work from a year before. This class attempts to empower the student to better find specific pieces of code, navigate large codebases, and enable then to contextualize the code they are reading in medium to large code bases.

Introduction to Kali Linux by Madhat / @unspecific
A fast paced introduction to the Linux operating system. Learn to understand how Linux environments are most commonly set up. Learn how to use the command line to explore the system, manipulate files, install/upgrade applications, and more.

Introduction to Nmap by Madhat / @unspecific
Have you heard of Nmap but don't really know where to start? Maybe you have run a few scans but don't feel like you know what you are doing? Have you been told Nmap is the tool you need, but you don't understand how or why?
Introduction to Nmap is here to help you. We will start from the installation, to the first run of Nmap, to more complex scans, output, fingerprinting, Nmap scripts, and more.

Exploring Wireless Networks with Wireshark by Madhat / @unspecific
This introduction to Wireshark, the powerful protocol analyzer, will explain the the basics of the User Interface (UI), then work on a real time example of monitoring a WiFi network, including decrypting the packets.
This class will also utilize a few command line tools, such as airmon-ng and airodump-ng. If you do not have a WiFi card that can be used in monitor mode, you will still be able to follow along via a packet capture provided.

Training seats are limited, please refund your training ticket if you are unable to commit the time.
As a reminder training day is on Friday 04 Nov 2022. That is the day before the main conference.
