Tool Demos - PM Session (2:45-4:45 p.m.)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The tool demo will cover a few widely available, cross-platform tools that will allow University IT professionals to discover devices on their network, assess them for vulnerabilities, and take steps to address these problems.  Because much of the information on our networks flow over HTTP, the session will start at a high level and consider the entire network, but quickly move to focus on web server resources.  Students should leave the class with a basic understanding of how to find resources on their network, find listening services, and track changes on the network.

The Tool Demo sessions are intended for University IT professionals with a basic understanding of TCP/IP, network topology, and web services. Attendees will gain an understanding of tools that are designed to harvest information on a network.  While some of these tools are often used to attack network resources, they can be valuable troubleshooting and maintenance tools in a managed environment. University IT professionals that want to know what is on their network, how to keep track of changes, and how to better assess and secure web resources will benefit from this session.

The exercises will be conducted on a closed, private network and will focus on discovering useful information about resources on the network.

Please note that this is not a Capture the Flag-type session.
