DevSecOps for Red Team Initial Access Operations – Joff Thyer
October 19 @ 1:00 pm – 1:50 pm MDT
Presented by: Joff Thyer
This presentation describes some of the challenges of malware development for Red Team initial access operations, and how continuous integration/continuous development (CICD) pipelines can be employed to assist in solving the challenges. The presentation will start by introducing some of the known techniques employed by modern endpoint defense software, and then describe how a CICD approach can be used to enable unique malware artifact production for bypass and initial access operational success. It is hoped that this presentation will stimulate ideas and discussion surrounding both source code obfuscation and related dynamically triggered child pipeline utilization.
