Formal Presentations

US Cyber Challenge Camp: “Large-Scale Forensic Analysis with SOF-ELK® and the Elastic Stack

  • Delaware Technical Community College: June 25, 2019; Dover, DE

The [Encrypted] Elephant in the Room

There is no arguing that the Internet is becoming both more widely and heavily encrypted. This has drastically changed (read: decreased) what traffic network forensicators and defenders can see and therefore use to perform their jobs. However, all hope is not lost. In this talk, we will first briefly explore some of what got us to this point, but more extensively discuss the current state of network traffic analysis in general and what we as an industry can do to overcome it. We will talk about legal, architectural, and technical means of maintaining meaningful visibility in a typical network environment, as well as how our analytic procedures can keep pace with the broader Internet trends.

The road ahead is still full of terabytes of NetFlow, logs, and yes – even full-packet-captures of network traffic. Encryption will remain a constantly evolving technology, meaning security professionals must also stay nimble in the face of this perpetual change.

The Tap House“: This is a series of talks that focus on new and emerging topics in the Network Forensics arena.  No two talks will be quite the same, so feel free to stop in and see what’s new if you’re attending a SANS or other event where we’re holding an event.

Packets move pretty fast. The field of Network Forensics needs to move fast, too. Whether you are investigating a known incident, hunting unidentified adversaries in your environment, or enriching forensic findings from disk- and memory-based examinations, it’s critical to stay abreast of the latest developments in the discipline.

In this SANS @Night series, Phil Hagen will discuss some of the latest technologies, techniques, and tools that you will want to know in pursuit of forensication nirvana.

Phil is also an avid craft beer fan, so there’s a good chance you will learn something about a new notable national or interesting local beer in the process.

This presentation will be helpful for those that wish to keep up-to-date on the most cutting-edge facets of Network Forensics.
