Title: Forensics in the Field – Find All The Things! (Devices)


Have you ever walked into a scene and wondered where to start?

Wondered if you should pull the plug or conduct a live examination?

Left a scene wondering if you found all the devices? In this presentation, Derrick will walk you through some free and open source techniques to passively and actively interact with a network to help you find wired and wireless devices that may not be in plain view. The presentation will walk you through how to covertly examine a network, actively interact with the network, and cover techniques based on the order of volatility when dealing with networks and devices including IoT devices. Topics we will cover include:

* Packet sniffing and its value to your scene triage
* Router analysis and exploitation
* IoT devices and their value to an active investigation
* Wireless analysis
* Reverse mapping wireless BSSID’s to locate a devices locations
* War driving for networks
* Additional tools and techniques (time permitting)
