This short workshop looks at how bad presentations make for bad talks. Its a shame, as most people who give talks spend little time thinking about the visual effects of terrible slide decks and how they can detract from the message they're trying to deliver. Over the years i have seen countless crap slide decks, and a handful of amazing ones. This workshop will aim to help you give a good talk that isn't death by powerpoint!

A quick dive into the world of mobile application testing, focusing on Android but with consideration for Windows Mobile, BB10 and iOS. It will be based on Portcullis' mobile application testing methodology although it will cover much of the equivalent OWASP methodology of which I am a contributor. It will cover testing from a network perspective as well as how you assess the attack surface an application presents locally.

Audience: Techies, Pentesters, Hackers, Any Geek
Requirements: A laptop with the Android SDK installed. I may be able to make a VMware image available closer to the time.

Metasploit: You can look like Hugh Jackman too! by Patryck Winkelmolen

"Patryck Winkelmolen is most famous for winning the 2013 Eurotrash Security Podcast contest, which in turn allowed him to visit BSidesLondon2013. Despite all the fame, success and groupies that came with winning the prize he remained quite humble and down to earth..

Patryck spends most of his days in Amsterdam. By day, he works as a consultant for the largest ISP The Netherlands can offer. He loves huge companies, because those are the places where people and technology eventually won’t get along and clash. These clashes cannot simply be fixed or replaced by a very small shell script, and will therefore remain the battlefield for human intervention over the next few years. Nobody really knows what he does at night, but it might have got something to do with being a co-author of the freely available LPIC2 Exam Prep guide from the hands of his employer.

This year, he wants to give back to all the folks that made BSidesLondon possible! He will be doing this by teaching a Metasploit Framework Introduction Workshop at BsidesLondon2014."

"You know about computers and stuff. You replaced some characters from your password so it reads 'Sw0rdf1sh' now. You know there are hundreds of tools out there, but you only have one lifetime to explore them all…

This is where the Metasploit Framework comes in. One framework to rule them all...

During this practical workshop session you will learn about the various stages of a pentest, and how the various puzzle pieces fit together. By using a centralised tool like the Metasploit Framework we can concentrate on results rather than effort. By the end of this workshop, you will have an understanding of the Metasploit Framework, how it can aid you in increasing your overall security and last but not least; You will be more bitter, but much wiser!"

Audience: Any Geek
Requirements: - Laptop (please leave the VAX at home..) - Virtualization software installed - Kali Linux guest installed

Getting at serial consoles in embedded devices by Paul Marsh

Paul works as a pentester of things for SecQuest infosec. In a previous life, he spent a great number of years in the IBM EMEA x-force hacking team, breaking more things. His interests include satellite hacking, hardware breaking, CNC machine building, POTS and VoIP telephony and of course infosec. He wont hear a bad word said about the iSeries / AS400 either! Paul has presented at a few European security conferences and to closed groups on a variety of interesting infosec related topics.

A talk on embedded devices and their use of serial consoles lasting for perhaps 20 minutes, some demonstration of finding consoles in a few different bits of kit, vsat modems, routers, media players etc. Opportunities for interested folks to have a go at doing this themselves and getting to grips with what hardware they will need to start picking away at hardware to find the consoles and get root.

Audience: Techies, PenTesters, Hackers, Any Geek
Requirements: A laptop, tty terminal emulator, and interface. We can probably find a handful of USB->serial adapters to give out to interested folks, but really the point of the workshop is to show people that they can get at the underlying system even if the network connection isnt playing ball.
Duration: 1 hour

Connect Dradis to everything: API, universal file upload and Excel(!) by Daniel Martin

"Daniel Martin (creator of the Dradis Framework)

Daniel has been in the industry for the last ten years. He created Dradis in Dec'07 and has been working on it every day since. His focus is on application security and is passionate about the Ruby programming language.

He has presented in DC4420 and DEFCON and has been a webapp security trainer in BlackHat. Last year he authored CPNI's Development and implementation of secure web applications Technical Note. He's found bugs in software like Microsoft Sharepoint and Oracle BPEL."

"The next version of Dradis will ship with an API to allow you to push data in from external sources. Learn about it and how to start using it (Metasploit integration? Sure! Push using `curl` from Bash or inside your python script? Why not!).

If HTTP APIs are not your thing, we'll also be introducing a new universal file upload so you can output your results into a file and feed them to Dradis directly. Learn about this new feature, the file format and how to make your tools and scripts compatible with very little effort.

Finally, you'll also learn how to get your results into Excel. Don't roll your eyes just yet. I know, nobody likes Excel... well except *the Business* (and maybe *the Client*), meaning there is a good chance you'll be asked to provide your findings in Excel format sooner or later. Learn how to do this in the most effortless and painless way, so you can get on with your hacking efforts.

Dradis is an open-source framework to enable you to work efficiently by gathering information from different tools and presenting it in a variety of formats. We currently support Burp Scanner, Nessus, NeXpose, Nikto, Nmap, OpenVAS, OSVDB, Qualys, Retina, SureCheck, VulnDB HQ, w3af, wXf and Zed Attack Proxy but with what you'll learn in this workshop you'll be able to connect Dradis to any other tool and present the information in any way you need.

Dradis is written in Rails so this is a great chance to learn a bit about Rails and how Rails apps work under the covers."

Audience: Techies, PenTesters, Hackers
Requirements: Laptop running BackTrack VM (or Kali for you youngsters

Extracting Configs From Common Remote Access Trojans by Kevin Breen

"By Day I'm a SANS Certified Intrusion Analyst and Malware Reverse Engineer for a large UK CIRT.

In my spare time I'm an Independant researcher and blogger. My current projects include Remote Administration Tools, Analysis of C2 Network Traffic and Yara rule writing."

This Workshop will take you through the steps required to extract and decode the Configuration settings from common Remote Access Trojans and create share able IOC's.

Staring with a Group effort the Instructor will lead you through all the steps required using a simple Publicly available RAT. You will be shown how to use simple debugging techniques and a few lines of python to get the information you require. Finally showing you methods that will achieve identical results without looking at a single line of assembly.

Once the group has created a working decoder each participant will be given their own random sample of a RAT to figure out and decode.

The final wrap up will deal with Creating IOC's on the artifacts you find.

Exploit Dev 101 by Liviu Itoafa

Penetration Tester with a passion for security and technical issues. Areas of interest relate to ethical hacking, investigating security incidents and researching software vulnerabilities. I became a coding enthusiast a long time ago when I found out you can do game cheats by patching binaries. Since then, I enjoy programming stuff for fun, fuzzing applications and reverse engineering.

"This will quickly go through finding exploits using fuzzing and debuggers. We'll play with crash dumps and reverse engineer a simple network protocol. To make things interesting, we'll build a custom shellcode, exploit an exotic class of vulnerabilities and bypass common protection mechanism. Hopefully we'll also have fun.(you will have fun damn it)

The takeaway from this workshop is to get you interested in more advanced exploitation processes.

Audience: Beginner / intermediate people with an interest in networking and building. Python knowledge is recommended but not really necessary.
Requirements: Medium level x86 assembly knowledge, Basic Python Scripting, Basic understanding of C programming concepts and familiar with Olly/Immunity
