Effective password testing using Metasploit
Software vulnerabilities receive most of the limelight in network security, but weak, shared, and mismanaged passwords are often the biggest threat to most organizations.
Assessing password issues can be difficult; many problems are not visible to standard security tools and few if any organizations include extensive password testing, outside of offline cracking, into their assessment process.
In this technical webinar for IT and security engineers, HD Moore shows participants how to test their network for common password mistakes, using a combination of open source and commercial tools. This webinar will include a special section highlighting recent research into SSH public key issues.
When: Thursday, January 19th, 2 pm -3 pm EST
