Workshop Topic Details:

Hands-On Exploit Development

Want to write memory corruption vulnerabilities but don’t know where to start? Do you secretly aspire to Pwn2Own glory and a life as a freelance bug hunter? So many tutorials assume a certain amount of previous knowledge, or the example programs are so hard to find and setup so you can follow along.

This workshop tackles the basics of how memory corruption vulnerabilities work as well as helping you get familiar with the tools of the trade such as Immunity Debugger, WinDBG, and Mona.py. Using real vulnerable programs in a contained lab environment, this hands-on class will get you up to speed on the basics in preparation for further study in this exciting realm.

For Every Workshop:

This is a hands-on workshop where you will put into practice those things you may have read about or covered in a class. This is also a great opportunity to meet other like-minded women and to keep your skills fresh if you're a veteran! You will also earn continuing education credits towards your certification renewal. 

Every workshop progresses from beginner through advanced topic material. Beginners are encouraged to watch and learn as much as possible even though you might not have a clue. Exposure to new tools and techniques by watching will advance your learning process a lot more quickly than trying to learn on your own. You will get to ask questions and see how it's done in the real world. Advanced attendees are encouraged to share their knowledge and experience and help answer "noob" questions as much as possible.
