Python Forensics – Latest Conference Participation
enfuse 2017 Conference Presentation
Asset Mapping with Python, presented by Chet HosmerDownload Session Python Source Code
Tuesday, May 23
11:00AM – 12:00PM
Mapping of enterprise computing assets is a vital step needed for the prevention and response to cyber-attacks. This talk will cover methodologies associated with asset mapping which will include Network and System mapping using both active and passive approaches. The talk is a combined lecture and demonstration. The approaches are codified using cross-platform Python language scripts developed by the author. The resulting open source solutions will be provided to all participants in the session.
1) To provide a common framework for asset mapping that includes both system and network assets.
2) Discuss the advantages of combining active and passive mapping methods.
3) Provide an open source methodology implemented in Python.
4) Demonstrate the value of Python based asset mapping for the prevention and response to cyber- attacks.
