Talks presented by MWR

  • Time: 10:20 
  • Room: Lecture Room 1
  • Topic: Project Vision, Making Passive System Mapping Great Again
  • Speakers: Chris Day
  • Description:

    Knowing what you have can be a challenging problem. System diagrams can be outdated or non-existent, the person who knew the system has left or that latest acquisition means you now have another companies worth of assets to account for.

    Traditional active mapping techniques, while accurate, can be invasive, resource intensive to produce and typically rely on a single technique to produce enumeration results. For overloaded or fragile systems, such as SCADA / ICS environments, active techniques can introduce stability issues and the risk of downtime.

    Passive mapping techniques offer solutions to some of these issues but individual passive methods can be inaccurate or lacking information. It is true of both active and passive techniques that the tools available so far typically operate in the network domain and do not capture non-Ethernet communications.

    Project Vision is designed to overcome these issues by offering an adaptive system enumeration option capable of mapping network and non-network based systems. This presentation will share our experiences conducting system mapping and our methodology for fusing together active and passive data sources, including some novel sources of system information. This talk is intended to discuss the technical issues of system mapping, the benefits of a blended approach to system enumeration data and introduce MWR’s Vision enumeration tool with demonstrations of Vision’s capabilities.


  • Time: 15:40
  • Room: Lecture Room 1
  • Topic: Outlook Rulez and E-Mail Rocks!
  • Speakers: Stuart Morgan
  • Description: Every organization relies on e-mail as a primary business enabler. However, it can also be a vector for external compromise, support lateral movement, be leveraged as a stealthy back door and provide remote control of your computer to adversaries. This talk will show you how your e-mail system can be used and abused by targeted attackers.
