Speaker: Ben Ten
We have seen PowerShell gain attention and adoption in the last few years. People are beginning to realize that there is more to PowerShell than another scripting language. With the adoption comes more tools and resources for both the offensive and defensive sides of security. This talk is designed to give you a first hand look of using PowerShell in both an offensive attacking scenario as well as a defensive scenario. In this talk I will be focusing on the tools, methods, and techniques that are being used from both offensive and defensive mindsets. I will highlight existing tools that can be leveraged as well as teach you how to write some custom tools yourself. We will dive into the more complex ideas with PowerShell and the .NET Framework. At the end of this talk, you will learn that there are many ways to leverage PowerShell to your advantage; regardless of what color hat you wear.
