Look Ma, No Packets! - The Recon-ng Framework

  • Tim Tomes
  • Sunday, March 24th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

I've been riding on the conference circuit for the last year preaching the importance of thorough reconnaissance as a part of the penetration testing methodology. I've talked about the principles of reconnaissance, how to accomplish it quickly and effectively, and even released a few tools to help along the way. In my latest tool, the Recon-ng framework, the power of reconnaissance has been taken to a new level. In this talk, I am going to show you the power of the Recon-ng framework by walking attendees through a live reconnaissance scenario. This scenario ends in the tester gaining credentials to the target environment without ever sending a packet to the target network. Come a skeptic. Leave a believer. Reconnaissance is king.
