Presenting the Nessus Bridge at #Hack3rcon this weekend.

This weekend (Oct 23rd and 24th) I will be in Charleston WV presenting/demoing the Nessus Bridge for Metasploit at Hack3rcon.  This will be the first time I’ll have presented anything outside of work and should be lots of fun.  Quite a few great speakers that I look forward to meeting.

I’ll post the presentation up here once it’s done for everyone else to take a look at.  Actually going to be presenting a few new commands that are not in the metasploit svn version of the plugin.

After Hack3rcon I’ll be back into high gear adding some new functionality to the plugin and branching out into writing a wrapper for Nessus to speak IVIL for Seccubus v2.  This is pretty exciting stuff for me.  Coming up with a xml format to speak “findings” that is tool agnostic is going to be a great thing.  It will mean moving findings between tools, or comparing findings between tools, will be much much easier.  Keep a look out for that one.

There has been some talk on the metasploit mailing list this week about using tools such as Nessus to scan through a MSF pivot and into another network.  Some interesting discussion and I think it’s something I will dive into in these next few weeks.  Start to examine what some of the limitations are and how we might overcome or avoid them.

that’s it for now.  have a good weekend.
