Living Off the Land (LOL) is a tend in security that many professionals aren’t prepared to deal with. The traditional tools like AV, HIPS, Network IPS, and proxies don’t detect normal tools doing normal things. These tools can be used to help identify malicious use of LOL techniques, but you have to know what to look for and how it works to be able to identify the normal activity vs malicious activity. This talk will give a brief introduction to some of the most popular techniques that attackers are using and enough information to be able to re-create similar attacks on your network so that you can see how they look with your tools and can work to identify this type of malicious activity. In addition to demos, we’ll talk about defensive techniques and questions are appreciated.
Ryan Linn is a security strategist for a large financial institution. His background in red teaming, penetration testing, incident response, and forensics has helped him to understand many of the challenges that security practitioners face today. He enjoys sharing this knowledge at places like DefCon, BlackHat, Triangle InfoSeCon, and other security conferences. He has helped train individuals around the world on hacking and incident response techniques, and has incorporated this information into books like Gray Hat Hacking.
