SANS@Mic - Building Your Own Kickass Home Lab

  • Jeff McJunkin
  • Thursday, December 10th, 7:30pm - 8:30pm

US Central Time

Building your own home lab is a great way to keep up with the ever-changing IT world. Well, how does one actually go about building a home lab? That's the part that gets more complicated. Do you really need a whole rack full of off-lease servers and some enterprise-grade switches? No! New-ish high-end servers and workstations are surprisingly powerful, capable of mocking up a pretty complicated network, including attacker systems and even incorporating wireless communications.In this talk, Jeff will walk through both the hardware and software stacks he uses and recommends, including a number of ways to incorporate Microsoft software without paying exorbitant licensing fees. Jeff will also outline several lab designs that can be used for a number of scenarios, including defense, offense, and forensics.
