January 9th Meeting ISSA Meeting – Brains over Brawn

This presentation will provide new password cracking ideas that can immediately be applied to penetration testing, improving organizational password compliance, recovery of password-protected documents needed for forensics, incident response, law enforcement, and legal cases. We will also share experiences running the DEFCON password cracking contest “Crack Me If You Can” which helped develop “intelligent recovery” methods as well as cutting-edge cracking logic.

The discussion will be lead by Sean Segreti - a security consultant, developer, and password researcher at KoreLogic where much of his time is dedicated to penetration testing for Fortune 500 companies. Sean is a maintainer of the Carnegie Mellon University’s Password Guessability Service, is an author of ten password-related publications, and has spoken at PasswordsCon and the Symposium On Usable Privacy and Security (SOUPS).
