More Tales from the Crypt…Analyst
Jeff Man, a former Cryptographer for the National Security Agency (NSA), has previously presented “Tales from the Crypt…Analyst” where he shared some of his experiences as both a designer of and breaker of cryptographic systems.
“More Tales from the Crypt…analyst” picks up with the speaker’s third “tour of duty” at NSA where he became one of the founding members of NSA’s first penetration testing or Red Team.
While the thought of NSA hiring hackers or engaging in cyber warfare might be fairly common today, it was not always the case. Somebody had to be first, and the policies, procedures, methodologies, and rules of engagement had to be developed for not only conducting what we called Vulnerability and Threat Assessments, but for successfully navigating the politics, bureaucracy, and reticence of this often-misunderstood clandestine organization.
The first NSA penetration testing team was assembled as a part of the newly formed center of excellence that NSA called the “Systems and Network Attack Center” or SNAC.
Come hear some war stories from the early days, and get a glimpse of how this industry and the art of penetration testing has evolved in the past 25 years.
