Pentesting Modern Defenses

  • James Shewmaker

Modern networks have multiple defensive layers that can prevent auditors and penetration testers from getting a clear perspective of actual risks and vulnerabilities. A legitimate penetration test will work around countermeasures with persistent effort, just as a real attacker. This session covers examples of leveraging modern-day features (IPv6, VPNs, and process management) to defeat modern-day defenses.
