Todd Dow

A CSEC cybersecurity analyst has gone rogue. He has taken a large cache of top secret files that include the names and identities of several secret agents working in foreign countries. This rogue analyst has stowed these files on the internet in an encrypted format and he is now threatening to share the location of the files and the decryption keys with the public. Earlier today, the CSEC cybersecurity analyst narrowly avoided capture at a local cyber cafe, but during his escape, he left behind a USB drive, which contained our only clues thus far…

Does this scenario sound familiar? Would you know how to recover this data?

In this action packed hour, Todd will use various publicly available infosec tools to solve this fictitious infosec mission. Topics and tools will include cryptography, steganography, virtual machines, network and intrusion monitoring and vulnerability exploit tools.
