Building a Home-Hacking Lab for Testing and Fun presented at BSidesHarrisburg 2019

by James Lloyd,


Summary : I have built and rebuilt many hacking lab setups throughout my career. This talk will describe the best way to set up vulnerable systems and any caveats in certain builds. I will discuss the benefits and negatives of using true Virtual Machines or Docker images. The discussion will have a strong focus on web applications testing. I will also share my experience in building injects for cyber exercise and how to build/test those injects in a home lab while being mindful of the legal ramifications.
