• How to Build Your Own Cryptocurrency Mining Rig

    i2 Labs - Miami

    Create Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoins, Ethereum... It’s as simple as that. Mining Rig computers generate cryptocurrencies. They are necessary for Bitcoins, Ethereum, ZCash, Litecoins, and nearly all other cryptocurrencies to buy, sell, or trade them. Miners are essential to the crypto world. They not only generate cryptocurrencies, they also validate all transactions, solve complex algorithms, and get paid by the network to use its processing power. If you are looking for a steady way to build your crypto portfolio, then mining could be the answer. On July 21st through 22nd, i2 Labs will host How to Build Your Own Cryptocurrency Mining Rig workshop. In this 2-day workshop, you'll learn step-by-step how to create your very own mining computer to start generating money. You will learn all the components needed and how to put them together. We will build a miner from scratch using basic computer parts, and show you the best hardware and software configurations to optimize your Return on Your Investment (ROI). The workshop instructor has spent years testing and retesting components, settings, and configurations to maximize revenues so you don’t have to. Who should attend this workshop? Anyone who has an interest in cryptocurrencies should take this course. Whether you are a seasoned trader or new to the field of cryptocurrencies and blockchain, if you can use a computer, you can build and setup your own cryptocurrency generating machine.

  • DC305: Cross-site Scripting Attack (XSS) Introduction

    • What we'll do During this meetup we will be going over the techniques and concepts that go into XSS. For those that find it difficult to make it to the meetup we will be posting a link for live streaming. Cross-site scripting (XSS) is a type of computer security vulnerability typically found in web applications. XSS enables attackers to inject client-side scripts into web pages viewed by other users. A cross-site scripting vulnerability may be used by attackers to bypass access controls such as the same-origin policy. Cross-site scripting carried out on websites accounted for roughly 84% of all security vulnerabilities documented by Symantec as of 2007.[1] Bug bounty company HackerOne in 2017 reported that XSS is still a major threat vector. XSS effects vary in range from petty nuisance to significant security risk, depending on the sensitivity of the data handled by the vulnerable site and the nature of any security mitigation implemented by the site's owner.

  • DC305: Metasploit Introduction

    I2 Labs

    The metasploit framework (MSF) is a powerful collection of scripts and modules used by many security professionals to find and verify vulnerabilities in a streamlined fashion. Within MSF, numerous tools can be used for intelligence gathering, scanning and exploitation, while keeping results organized, searchable and exportable. In order to get familiar with metasploit, we will go over some of the core options and functionality while performing tests on a dedicated target. In this DC305 Meetup we will show how to: • Configure: Learn what services can enhance your work. Start up the framework console, setup a workspace and navigate in the sea of options. • Scan: Use different tools to find the target, gather a list of available services and any other information that can be used to plan your next move. • Explore: Find out what information is important, how to search for exploits and how to choose the correct module for the moment of truth. • Exploit: Use the intel you have collected to prepare the exploit, dive in and learn about Meterpreter, an advanced dynamic payload that enables various post-exploitation modules.

  • DC305: Explore the Hak5 Field Kit

    I2 Labs

    During this Meetup, we will explore the Hak5 field kit and its components. We will do an introductory talk/demo about some of Hak5’s top selling tools that have been showcased in major tv series like Mr. Robot and Silicon Valley and are becoming a staple in both security administrators and threat actors tool boxes. Wifi Pineapple : It isn't a simple client radio, nor just a router or access point. The WiFi Pineapple NANO is a powerful wireless network auditing tool that leverages its unique hardware and intuitive web interface to integrate with your pentest workflow. And it fits in your pocket. USB Rubber Ducky : The USB Rubber Ducky is a keystroke injection tool disguised as a generic flash drive. Computers recognize it as a regular keyboard and accept pre-programmed keystroke payloads at over 1000 words per minute. LAN Turtle : The LAN Turtle is a covert Systems Administration and Penetration Testing tool providing stealth remote access, network intelligence gathering, and man-in-the-middle surveillance capabilities through a simple graphic shell. Bash Bunny : It features a simple scripting language that you can write in any text editor like notepad. The growing collection of payloads are hosted in a single library so finding the right attack is quick and easy. Setting up Bash Bunny attacks is just a matter of flicking its switch to arming mode and copying a payload file. No shortage of fun and interesting paths to follow. DEFCON groups were birthed out of the largest annual security conference, DEFCON, held in Las Vegas. The groups are localized gatherings of people who want to learn, create and do things, especially when it involves the unintended use of something, (a hack). We are open to all curious minded folks, no matter the comfort level with computers or technology. This is about community, so come out and meet your neighbors, peers, and those running the world in their own minds. During this Meetup, you will have an opportunity to tour the i2 Labs’ space, enjoy snacks and refreshments, meet and greet like-minded folks, and help fine-tune initial direction for DCG305.
