Show 176 – Intro to Python & Automation for Network Engineers

In this show, network automation geeks Jeremy Schulman and John Deatherage join host Ethan Banks for a practical look at getting started with Python and a host of related tools that the networking industry is making use of. The point being…you can, too. The automation movement in networking is driven in no small part by the open source community, meaning that there’s a lot of tools available for free.

Beyond the Tech: Building Internet Freedom Tools for Real People

Few hackers will disagree that users are not given enough consideration when building Internet Freedom Tools designed to circumvent censorship and surveillance. But how do we do it? This talk will outline a framework for a user-focused approach to the Development and Impact of Internet Freedom Tools through using ethnography, human-centered design, and the practice of research-based product definition. This talk is intended for developers, researchers, and journalists who seek to understand how better tools can be developed to protect anonymity and provide unfettered access to the Internet. Internet Freedom Tools (IFTs) are developed to solve the technical challenges of anonymity, privacy, security and information access. Focus on these technical challenges rather than the user of an IFT can lead to overlooking the motivations, needs and usability issues faced by user communities. Further, IFTs may solve a technical challenge for users, and yet fall short when it comes to user experience. There is a disconnect that must be remedied for IFTs and the people who use them to realize their full potential. This talk seeks to provide new insights to developers and users in need of knowledge on how they can better address relevant problems, create appropriate solutions and help users with IFTs. This talk will explain to the audience what tools are available for user-focused design. It will also walk through a framework to guide the development of IFTs that is grounded in ethnographic methods and human-centered design, and how this framework is being used to conduct an IFT user community. This work is currently being conducted by SecondMuse and Radio Free Asia through the Open Technology Fund (www.opentechfund.org). ADDENDUM: But, what is "Ethnography"? What are "User Communities"? Ethnography is defined as the study of culture and human motivation through qualitative research. Ethnographic practices complement usability studies by tapping into needs and motivations of people and users to give the "why" behind certain actions observed solely through conducting usability research. This method includes interviews, observing specific behaviors and understanding the material culture and surrounds of a target group. A community is defined as a group of users that can be defined by geography, culture, shared experiences, or shared challenges. User is defined as someone who is currently utilizing a particular IFTs such as Tor, RedPhone, CryptoCat, and/or other privacy, security, anonymity and access enhancing technologies and methodologies created by developers or users themselves. A user may also be defined as a potential user of such technologies and tools. http://events.ccc.de/congress/2013/Fahrplan/events/5550.html Day: 2013-12-30 Start time: 11:30 Duration: 01:00 Room: Saal G Track: Science & Engineering Language: en

An introduction to Firmware Analysis

This talk gives an introduction to firmware analysis: It starts with how to retrieve the binary, e.g. get a plain file from manufacturer, extract it from an executable or memory device, or even sniff it out of an update process or internal CPU memory, which can be really tricky. After that it introduces the necessary tools, gives tips on how to detect the processor architecture, and explains some more advanced analysis techniques, including how to figure out the offsets where the firmware is loaded to, and how to start the investigation. The talk focuses on the different steps to be taken to acquire and analyze the firmware of an embedded device, especially without knowing anything about the processor architecture in use. Frequently datasheets are not available or do not name any details about the used processor or System on Chip (SoC). First the prerequisites, like knowledge about the device under investigation, the ability to read assembly language, and the tools of the trade for acquisition and analysis, are shown. The question "How do I get the firmware out of device X?" makes the next big chapter: From easy to hard we pass through the different kinds of storage systems and locations a firmware can be stored to, the different ways the firmware gets transferred onto the device, and which tools we can use to retrieve the firmware from where it resides. The next step is to analyze the gathered data. Is it compressed in any way? For which of the various different processor architectures out there was it compiled for? Once we successfully figured out the CPU type and we've found a matching disassembler, where do we start to analyze the code? Often we have to find out the offset where the firmware is loaded to, to get an easy-to-analyze disassembler output. A technique to identify these offsets will be shown. The last chapter covers the modifications we can apply to the firmware, and what types of checksum mechanisms are known to be used by the device or the firmware itself to check the integrity of the code. http://events.ccc.de/congress/2013/Fahrplan/events/5477.html Day: 2013-12-27 Start time: 12:45 Duration: 01:00 Room: Saal 1 Track: Security & Safety Language: en
