Want to see Live Online in action? SANS is launching a new series of free workshops available in the Live Online platform, held every other Tuesday at 1:00pm EDT (17:00 UTC) with our top instructors. These workshops are two-hour hands-on virtual environments that give you the opportunity to dive into the material and start trying out tools and techniques that are useful and relevant in focus areas across cybersecurity.
The upcoming workshops are listed out below and will feature the same platform, TA support, and Slack channel benefits that you would get in a Live Online environment. We recommend bookmarking this page and checking back frequently, as we'll be adding more in the days and weeks to come.
Due to the nature of these workshops, many have a capacity limit and will not be made available for archive. To help us offer this opportunity to as many people as possible, we are asking that you please only register if you plan to attend live.
Free Upcoming Live Online Workshops
Rooting Android and Jailbreaking iOS for Mobile Security Assessments
Tuesday, July 7, 2020 at 1:00pm EDT (17:00 UTC)
Duration: 2 Hours
The SANS "SEC575: Mobile Device Security and Ethical Hacking" training highlights how gaining privileged access to a mobile device is often needed, and highly recommended, to perform in-depth low level mobile security assessments. All popular mobile devices come with default restrictions that limit the activities required by security analysts to research and assess the security of the mobile operating system and mobile apps.
In this hands-on workshop we will take a practical look at some of the most common steps required to root an Android and jailbreak an iOS mobile device, using modern versions of both mobile operating systems. The workshop goal is to end up rooting or jailbreaking your testing mobile devices, but you need to accept the challenge of overcoming all the pre-requisites, steps and difficulties that might be encountered in this process. Attendees are required to have an inquisitive soul, do not fear setbacks, and be very eager to learn... ;-)
System Requirements: The workshop will be mainly delivered using Windows 10 as the platform of reference, to reach a larger audience (although using a macOS system is also an option, but with limited support during the workshop). Attendees must have administrative access to their computers to be able to install new applications and tools.
Having Internet access during the workshop is mandatory. A Wi-Fi network (with Internet access) shared between the Windows (or macOS/Linux) computer and the testing mobile devices is required.
To benefit as much as possible from the hands-on workshop activities, attendees should have at least one Apple iOS/iPadOS testing mobile device (for the jailbreak section), and/or one Android testing mobile device (for the rooting section), preferably Google Nexus or Pixel devices. Do not use your production mobile devices for the workshop!!
The iOS/iPadOS device (iPhone or iPad) must run a OS version up to 13.5 for unc0ver - https://unc0ver.dev - (or alternatively, a mobile device model supported by checkra1n - https://checkra.in - can be used, although this will require using macOS or Linux, again with limited support during the workshop).
The iOS jailbreak process requires a (disposable) Apple ID, so you need to create an Apple account in advance - https://appleid.apple.com/acco... Android device should run a modern version of Android, preferably 7, 8 or 9, rather than Android 10, as there are current limitations in custom recovery images for Android 10 (if Android 10 is used, an alternative rooting method will be required).
Apart from these hardware requirements, you need to be ready to prepare and meet multiple prerequisites (software, tools, etc.) that will be provided early in the workshop.
*Please note that this WILL NOT be recorded. Due to the nature of these workshops, many have a capacity limit and will not be made available for archive. To help us offer this opportunity to as many people as possible, we are asking that you please only register if you plan to attend live.
