Agenda• About me• About Python• Python basics• Python’s uses• Coding for Penetration Testers book• Tips, tricks, observations• Resources
About meWho am I?• Husband/father/geek/gets distracted by shiny objects easy• Career path switched to IT in 1999, professionally in IT since 2001 – Learning, studying, and currently interviewing for infosec professional roles• Vbscript – 2007• Python – 2011
About Python• Conceived in the late 1980’s by Guido van Rossum at CWI. • Python 2.0 was release on October 16th, 2000 • Python 3.0 was released on December 2008
What is Python good for?• Python comes with a large standard library that covers areas such as; • string processing • Internet protocols • software engineering • operating system interfaces • Artificial intelligence (because of similarities to Lisp)
What is Python good for?Extensive use in the information security industry • Exploit development • Network • Debugging • Reverse engineering • fuzzing, • Web • Forensics • Malware analysis • PDF
What is Python good for?• Easy to write short scripts for system admin work.• Python code is easy to understand. • Once the basic syntax is learned, even the most complicated scripts can make sense.
What is Python good for?• Python is cross platform!! • It will work on Linux, Windows, Mac and most every other OS.• Many, many resources and a big, friendly community
Python tools• Social-Engineer Toolkit - specifically designed to perform advanced attacks against the human element.• Artillery - a honeypot/monitoring/prevention tool used to protect Linux-based systems.• Fast-Track - aimed at helping Penetration Testers in an effort to identify, exploit, and further penetrate a network.• Scapy - send, sniff and dissect and forge network packets. Usable interactively or as a library• Pytbull - flexible IDS/IPS testing framework (shipped with more than 300 tests)• Scrapy - a fast high-level screen scraping and web crawling framework, used to crawl websites and extract structured data from their pages• W3af - a Web Application Attack and Audit Framework.
