What I’m Up To

“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”

It’s Day 2 of InfoSec Week at UC Baseline, the cybersecurity training program offered by Tampa Bay’s security guild, The Undercroft. I’ve fired up Kali — a distribution of Linux made for cybersecurity types and other troublemakers — and am marveling at the hacking goodies contained within.

I’ll write more as we go through the exercises, which includes fun activities including:

  • Networking and IPv4 basics review (easy)
  • Scanning and enumeration (I will neither confirm nor deny that I have any experience doing this)
  • Breaching a system (Totally new to me)
  • Web application vulnerability analysis (I’ve got only a tiny bit of hands-on experience in this area)
