Active Defense, Offensive Countermeasures and Cyber Deception (Two-day Version)

Course Syllabus  ·  12 CPEs  ·   Laptop Requirements

The current threat landscape is shifting. Traditional defenses are failing us. We need to develop new strategies to defend ourselves. Even more importantly, we need to better understand who is attacking us and why. You may be able to immediately implement some of the measures we discuss in this course, while others may take a while. Either way, consider what we discuss as a collection of tools at your disposal when you need them to annoy attackers, determine who is attacking you, and, finally, attack the attackers.

Active Defense, Offensive Countermeasures and Cyber Deception is based on the Active Defense Harbinger Distribution live Linux environment funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). This virtual machine is built from the ground up for defenders to quickly implement Active Defenses in their environments. The course is very heavy with hands-on activities - we won't just talk about Active Defenses, we will work through labs that will enable you to quickly and easily implement what you learn in your own working environment.
