Summary : In this talk we will examine the problem of detecting authorized penetration testers from a variety of technical and political aspects. One on hand, we need to monitor and protect from many threats, but politically, we also don't want to have the pen test team make your security monitoring, your SIM or your NIDS look like a joke. Attendees will quickly realize that the tips and insights for making better use of firewall logs, netflow, systems logs and so on can and should be applied to monitoring for real bad guys as well.
