Seccubus Workshop presented at BruCON 2010

Tags: Security Infrastructure Application Security

Summary : As part of his job as Security Engineer at Schuberg Philis, Frank Breedijk performs regular security scans. The repetitive nature of scanning the same customer infrastructure over and over again made him decide to look for a more automated approach. After building his first scanning scheduler he realized that it actually does not make sense to look at all findings every time they are reported. It would be much better to only investigate the deltas between the scans. The philosophy behind AutoNessus was born.

In his workshop Frank will demonstrate Seccubus by making the attendees perform scans of a live demo environment and explain the inner workings of Seccubus and the philosophy behind it.
