Presentation 1: Armitage+Metasploit for Penetration Testing from Information Collecting to Post Exploitation

Date: Wednesday, January 5, 2022

Time: 1:00-1:50 p.m. ET

Location: Zoom Meeting
Just log in as "Guest" and enter your name; no password required.

Audience: Students, professors, government

Presenter(s):  Dr. Xinwen Fu, University of Massachusetts, Lowell

Description:  It is often hard to find an intuitive live demo and explain the whole cycle of cyberattacks/penetration testing. To this end, this talk discusses the use of Armitage, which is a GUI interface for the popular hacking/penetration testing tool Metasploit. Just a few clicks and commands are needed to perform information collecting (e.g. port scanning), exploitation and post exploitation (e.g., hashdump and password cracking). Armitage and Metasploit can be installed on a Kali Linux virtual machine.

Presentation 2: The Role of Centers of Academic Excellence in Democratizing Cyber Security

Date: Wednesday, January 5, 2022

Time: 2:00-2:50 pm EST

Location: Zoom Meeting
Just log in as "Guest" and enter your name; no password required.

Audience: Students, professors, government

Presenter(s): Michael Losavio, Sharon Kerrick, Adel Elmaghraby, Jeffrey Sun, Im Ghiyoung, University of Louisville

Description:  The expansion of pervasive and ubiquitous computing, especially with the Internet of Thingsand the Smart City, also expands the novel means of criminality and its investigation. We suggest thatnovel means of investigation and discovery may not be sufficient to limit injuries to citizens. Criminal justice and criminology models for cybersecurity offer significant benefits for public cybersecurity, even as they have been largely overlooked. Discussion with the conference participants may inform broader efforts for cybersecurity, including criminal justice integration. Integration of cybersecurity and forensic practices into traditional law enforcement and public safety will be needed to provide public safety and security in our hybrid technical world. We must, in essence, “Democratize” Cyber Security. We discuss means to achieve this and results from efforts to promote this integration.

A recording of both presentations will be available within 48 hours of the presentation.
