In this episode of Tradecraft Security Weekly hosts Beau Bullock (@dafthack) and Mike Felch (@ustayready) discuss methods for evading network-based detection mechanisms. Many commercial IDS/IPS devices do a pretty decent job of detecting standard pentesting tools like Nmap when no evasion options are used. Additionally, companies are doing a better job at detecting and blocking IP addresses performing password attacks. Proxycannon is a tool that allows pentesters to spin up multiple servers to proxy attempts through to bypass some of these detection mechanisms.
Stellar Cyber's Open XDR platform that collates data from networks, clouds, applications, endpoints and other sources provides 360-degree visibility in identifying and responding to attacks, according to the company.
