May 9th Meeting 6pm @ Elsies

Written by  on April 28, 2013

For the May DC612 meeting, Paul Dokas will be presenting on the new Dragon Research Group (DRG) pod distro. The Dragon Research Group (DRG) is a volunteer group of security researchers that collect and freely distribute intelligence regarding malicious behavior seen online.  One of the key platforms used to collect and analyze this data is the DRG pod which is a passive sensor built using NanoBSD (a slimmed down version of FreeBSD).  This talk will cover the design goals, system layout, build system and future directions for the pods.

Bio: Paul Dokas is an IT security professional with 20+ years of experience in the IT industry as an IT security architect and analyst, programmer, and system administrator.  Currently working in the Twin Cities as an senior IT security analyst he is expanding his passion for intrusion detection, data analysis and incident response.  In off hours, he volunteers with the DRG and is building a network intrusion sensor and analysis framework (soon to be released as open source).
