  54. * [Primum non nocere - Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primum_non_nocere)
  55. * Primum non nocere (Classical Latin: [ˈpriːmũː noːn nɔˈkeːrɛ]) is a Latin phrase that means "first, do no harm."
  56. * The ""I don't know what I'm doing but I want to learn 'security'" portion:
  57. * Security imo is a field like philosophy. On its own, it has limited application in the immediate. However, when applied to other subjects, its value/usefulness becomes more apparent.
  58. * You can learn security as a discipline, or you can learn general basic concepts and then apply that to a line of code/function/program/Architecture/Design/etc.
  59. * There isn't a single path to take, and not all paths go straight forward, you may go down one path only to find you end up reading about the basics for something you considered ignorable/not worth your time, because in a new perspective, you've seen the 'hidden' value.
  60. * The "I wanna be a hacker!" advice:
  61. 1. Learn basic security concepts
  62. * check out the Security+ syllabus by Comptia for ideas.
  63. * [Computer Science Distilled: Learn the Art of Solving Computational Problems - Wladston Ferreira Filho](https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/34189798-computer-science-distilled), Plus plenty of reading on Wikipedia: [Computer Science - Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_science)

  104. * Tacit knowledge or implicit knowledge (as opposed to formal, codified or explicit knowledge) is the kind of knowledge that is difficult to transfer to another person by means of writing it down or verbalizing it. For example, that London is in the United Kingdom is a piece of explicit knowledge that can be written down, transmitted, and understood by a recipient. However, the ability to speak a language, ride a bicycle, knead dough, play a musical instrument, or design and use complex equipment requires all sorts of knowledge which is not always known explicitly, even by expert practitioners, and which is difficult or impossible to explicitly transfer to other people.

  113. * As software is eating the world, every company is becoming a software company. This doesn’t mean that every company is shipping software products, it means that services and products in every field are becoming increasingly driven, powered, and differentiated by software. Let’s explore what that will do to how cybersecurity is practiced in enterprises of all types. Peter Drucker famously said that “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.” There have been two large cultural shifts in software engineering over the last 20 years that created the successful strategies behind how software is eating the world. First, there was Agile (2001). In response to the inefficiencies of classic “waterfall” software development, Agile focused on breaking down the barriers between software requirements, development, and testing by having software development teams own their roadmaps as well as their quality. Separate product management organizations evolved into product owners working directly with the software team. Similarly, separate quality assurance organizations evolved into a focus on building quality into the software development process. This should remind us of how we talk about needing to build security in, but most importantly, this change was effected by software teams themselves vs. forced onto them by a separate security organization. There is a lesson to be learned there. Next came DevOps (2009), which brought the agile mindset to server operations. Software teams now began to own their deployment and their uptime. Treating software teams as the end-user and customer has driven the replacement of traditional ops with the cloud and replacing the traditional stack with serverless models. Ops teams evolved into software teams that provide platforms, tools, and self-service infrastructure to internal teams. They provide value by increasing internal teams’ productivity while reducing costs to the entire organization through economies of scale and other efficiencies. When a cross-functional team owns their features, their quality, their deployment, and their uptime, they fully own their end-to-end value stream. Next, they will evolve to also own their own risks and fully own their end-to-end impact. There are two big shifts involved as teams begin to own their end-to-end impact: software teams need to own their own security now and security teams need to become full-stack software teams. Just as separate product management and quality assurance organizations diffused into cross-functional software teams, security must now do the same. At his re:Invent 2018 Keynote, Amazon’s CTO Werner Vogels proclaimed that “security is everyone’s job now, not just the security team’s.” But if security is every teams’ job, what is the security team’s job? Just like how classic ops teams became internal infrastructure software teams, security teams will become internal security software teams that deliver value to internal teams through self-service platforms and tools. Security teams that adopt this approach will reduce the risk to the organization the most while also minimizing impact to overall productivity. In this talk, we’ll explore how this is already being done across high-performing companies and how to foster this security transformation at yours.
  114. * [Real Software Engineering - Glenn Vanderburg(Software Art Thou)](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RhdlBHHimeM)
  115. * The idea is spreading that perhaps software development is simply incompatible with engineering; that software developers are not, and never will be, real engineers. Glenn Vanderburg, VP of Engineering at First, takes a fresh look at what that really should mean for this field. With an extra 45 years of experience about the task of programming, and a broad survey of the varied different engineering disciplines, can we envision a future for a field of “software engineering” that is worthy of the name?
  116. * [Real Software Engineering by Glenn Vanderburg(Lone Star Ruby Conference(2010)](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NP9AIUT9nos&feature=youtu.be)
  117. * Software engineering as it's taught in universities simply doesn't work. It doesn't produce software systems of high quality, and it doesn't produce them for low cost. Sometimes, even when practiced rigorously, it doesn't produce systems at all. That's odd, because in every other field, the term "engineering" is reserved for methods that work. What then, does real software engineering look like? How can we consistently deliver high-quality systems to our customers and employers in a timely fashion and for a reasonable cost? In this session, we'll discuss where software engineering went wrong, and build the case that disciplined Agile methods, far from being "anti-engineering" (as they are often described), actually represent the best of engineering principles applied to the task of software development.

  144. * If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants; Most famously attributed to Sir Isaac Newton, this quote reflects the sentiment of this project. All of us in the field of information security stand on the shoulders of giants, this project is dedicated to shining a light on those shoulders- the known and unknown.

  187. * True empathy requires that you step outside your own emotions to view things entirely from the perspective of the other person.? Reject the idea that end users are the weakest security link. Rather, think of them as your front line of defense. Start the foundation of creating a strong culture of security within your organization by treating end users with respect, dignity, and empathy. Security professionals need to utilize soft skills, in addition to technical tools, to empower the end users to prepare them against phishing and other social engineering attacks. Based on a library science technique that has been adapted for Information Security professionals, this talk will illustrate how changing the way you interact with end users can make for a better security atmosphere.

  189. * Continuous deployment and the DevOps philosophy have forever changed the ways in which businesses operate. This talk with discuss how security adapts effectively to these changes- specifically covering: – Practical advice for building and scaling modern AppSec and NetSec programs – Lessons learned for organizations seeking to launch a bug bounty program – How to run realistic attack simulations and learn the signals of compromise in your environment

  191. * There's no blueprint for how to be successful at a small startup. Startups are quirky, ambiguous, and full of challenges and broken processes. Startups also have a high risk tolerance and rarely introduce security from the beginning. This talk will discuss different approaches to introducing security at a company, how to be successful as a security professional at a startup, and how to integrate your security team with the rest of the company.

  193. * Over the last decade, technology as a whole has exploded worldwide and corporations have struggled to keep pace. Usability and revenue creation have been the key motivating factors, ignoring the proactive design and security required for long-term stability. With the increase of breaking news hacks, record breaking data leaks, and ransomware attacks it is our job to not only scrape by with default installs but to secure our data and assets to the best of our abilities. There will always be cases where you will walk into an environment that is a metaphorical train wreck. So many of us have been there. We've walked into an environment that has exploded with technology, but no talent to manage it, no leadership to distinguish FUD from real threats, and either zero infosec budget or so much they aren't sure what to do with it. If you or someone you know are currently in this situation, we're here to help. We'll go over great steps to start with that will have little impact on budget, but a large impact on moving forward for a more secure environment. It is important to be able to implement low cost security technology and prioritize threats to show upper level management that due diligence has been done before they throw money at blinky boxes.

  197. * Let’s face it; it’s not easy to run a security governance program. With the continuing pressure of keeping our information secure and breach-free while management doesn’t see the need of increasing budget if there isn’t an incident occurring or compliance need. So how does someone in the trenches measure, monitor, and communicate this to ensure that you get the buy-in needed - or at least get the acceptance from management on the risk. It’s something that everyone in a security leadership position struggles with. Through this talk, we will be discussing some of the key points in implementing, managing, and creating oversight to communicate both internally to the security team and externally with the company. And don’t worry, the points we will be discussing will be applicable across the board - from small businesses to Fortune 100s. Also, we will be releasing some helpful tools in aiding your quest to the nirvana of a simple security governance program. You don't want to miss it!

  199. * Information security has been a challenge since the dawn of computer networking. Improving the situation requires coordination and cooperation, not an adversarial stance between The Business, Security and IT. The answer isn't more endpoint agents, blinky boxes, or vendor pitches. The answer lies in partnering with all teams with a common purpose: improved security.

  201. * This talk explores that counter-intuitive premise, and shows how it is not just possible but *necessary* to discard many traditional security behaviors in order to support modern high-velocity, cloud-centric engineering teams. For the product security team at Netflix, this is the logical implication of a cultural commitment to enabling the organization. Attendees will learn how to replace heavy-handed gating with an automation-first approach, and build powerful security capabilities on top of cloud deployment primitives. Specific examples including provable application identity, immutable and continuous deployment, and secret bootstrapping illustrate how this approach balances security impact with engineering enablement.

  205. * Scenario: You've been put in charge of InfoSec for a business with no existing security posture and the executive team thinks that Antivirus and Firewall is a sufficient InfoSec budget. They expect results in one year. If you're thinking '`Oh $(*7, I have to do what?'`, this talk is for you. At the end of this talk you will have a roadmap for the first year of implementing a security program, with some understanding of what those who have come before you have done. I hope to explain my mistakes so that you don't have to make mine; you can make your own.

  229. * Security teams spend a lot of time focused on the results and impact of what happens when applications FAIL at security. In turn, we have a bad habit of 'Monday-Morning-Quarterback'ing all the things that should have happened to prevent the security failure in the first place. But have you ever attempted to fully implement ALL of the security advice that's out there in conjunction with business priorities? Well, I did. In this presentation, I will share what I learned about what it takes to get application security right from design to delivery, how to communicate about REAL risk (without the FUD) and why we should eliminate the word 'just' from our remediation recommendations.

Sharing knowledge is fantastic, but when you're a busy AppSec engineer or manager struggling to keep up with day-to-day requirements, it can be difficult to stay on top of or even be aware of relevant research. This talk will summarize and distill the unique tips and tricks, lessons learned, and tools discussed in a vast number of blog posts and conference talks over the past few years and combine it with knowledge gained from in-person discussions with AppSec engineers at a number of companies with mature security teams. Topics covered will include: Principles, mindsets, and methodologies of highly effective AppSec teams, Best practices in developing security champions and building a positive security culture, High value engineering projects that can prevent classes of bugs, How and where to integrate security automation into the CI/CD process in a high signal, low noise way, Open source tools that help with one or more of the above. Attendees will leave this talk with an understanding of the current state of the art in DevSecOps, links to tools they can use, resources where they can dive into specific topics of interest, and most importantly an actionable path forward for taking their security program to the next level.

  263. * Why do we have such a hard time getting engineering teams to care about vulnerabilities? How is it that we are fixing lots of vulnerabilities, yet are still falling ever further behind on the actual risks? These questions both have the same answer, but getting to it requires empathy, trust, courage, and a giant step back from our day-to-day approach to security. In this talk we will share our experiences about creating proactive partnerships with engineering and product teams. From the ways we have seen this fail to recent success stories, we will illustrate specific practices that help developers and security teams focus and align on a shared view of risk, rather than a laundry list of vulnerabilities: the leverage that comes from enabling rather than gating, automating for visibility and action to manage scale, threat modeling across organizations rather than individual applications, and the particulars of how we get big security features onto busy product teams' roadmaps.

  269. * In this presentation, Koen will share his experiences with Product Teams at Riot Games and how those teams do or do not take security into consideration. Every product team is unique; but they all behave in similar security patterns, and care about security in predictable ways. Using metrics of our Bug Bounty program and security review process, we’ll dissect the impact that team culture and process have on the security posture of a product. The framework that we’ve created allows you to quickly see what makes a good team good, and how other teams can improve. Taking into account how agile organisations want to operate, we will look at some tools you can introduce into your product teams to help raise the security bar.

  312. * The map of reality is not reality. Even the best maps are imperfect. That’s because they are reductions of what they represent. If a map were to represent the territory with perfect fidelity, it would no longer be a reduction and thus would no longer be useful to us. A map can also be a snapshot of a point in time, representing something that no longer exists. This is important to keep in mind as we think through problems and make better decisions.
  313. * [Coastline paradox - Wikipedia](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coastline_paradox)
  314. * The coastline paradox is the counterintuitive observation that the coastline of a landmass does not have a well-defined length. This results from the fractal curve-like properties of coastlines, i.e., the fact that a coastline typically has a fractal dimension (which in fact makes the notion of length inapplicable).

Everybody who wants to make life easier on themselves, power users and sysadmins alike, can benefit from reading this practical course. The guide contains lots of examples and exercises at the end of each chapter, demonstrating the theory and helping you practice. Bash is available on a wide variety of UNIX, Linux, MS Windows and other systems.
  333. * [The BashGuide](https://mywiki.wooledge.org/BashGuide)
  334. * This guide aims to aid people interested in learning to work with BASH. It aspires to teach good practice techniques for using BASH, and writing simple scripts. This guide is targeted at beginning users. It assumes no advanced knowledge -- just the ability to login to a Unix-like system and open a command-line (terminal) interface. It will help if you know how to use a text editor; we will not be covering editors, nor do we endorse any particular editor choice. Familiarity with the fundamental Unix tool set, or with other programming languages or programming concepts, is not required, but those who have such knowledge may understand some of the examples more quickly.

  363. * [GNU Screen - gnu.org](https://www.gnu.org/software/screen/)
  364. * Screen is a full-screen window manager that multiplexes a physical terminal between several processes, typically interactive shells. Each virtual terminal provides the functions of the DEC VT100 terminal and, in addition, several control functions from the ANSI X3.64 (ISO 6429) and ISO 2022 standards (e.g., insert/delete line and support for multiple character sets). There is a scrollback history buffer for each virtual terminal and a copy-and-paste mechanism that allows the user to move text regions between windows. When screen is called, it creates a single window with a shell in it (or the specified command) and then gets out of your way so that you can use the program as you normally would. Then, at any time, you can create new (full-screen) windows with other programs in them (including more shells), kill the current window, view a list of the active windows, turn output logging on and off, copy text between windows, view the scrollback history, switch between windows, etc. All windows run their programs completely independent of each other. Programs continue to run when their window is currently not visible and even when the whole screen session is detached from the users terminal.

  426. * This paper presents a design principle that helps guide placement of functions among the modules of a distributed computer system. The principle, called the end-to-end argument, suggests that functions placed at low levels of a system may be redundant or of little value when compared with the cost of providing them at that low level. Examples discussed in the paper include bit error recovery, security using encryption, duplicate message suppression, recovery from system crashes, and delivery acknowledgement. Low level mechanisms to support these functions are justified only as performance enhancements.
  427. * [Ceremony Design and Analysis - Carl Ellison](https://eprint.iacr.org/2007/399.pdf)
  428. * Abstract. The concept of ceremony is introduced as an extension of the concept of network protocol, with human nodes alongside computer nodes and with communication links that include UI, human-to-human communication and transfers of physical objects that carry data. What is out-of-band to a protocol is in-band to a ceremony, and therefore subject to design and analysis using variants of the same mature techniques used for the design and analysis of protocols. Ceremonies include all protocols, as well as all applications with a user interface, all workflow and all provisioning scenarios. A secure ceremony is secure against both normal attacks and social engineering. However, some secure protocols imply ceremonies that cannot be made secure.

  440. * Virtually every company today uses firewalls to enforce perimeter security. However, this security model is problematic because, when that perimeter is breached, an attacker has relatively easy access to a company’s privileged intranet. As companies adopt mobile and cloud technologies, the perimeter is becoming increasingly difficult to enforce. Google is taking a different approach to network security. We are removing the requirement for a privileged intranet and moving our corporate applications to the Internet.

Double-loop learning recognises that the way a problem is defined and solved can be a source of the problem. This type of learning can be useful in organizational learning since it can drive creativity and innovation, going beyond adapting to change to anticipating or being ahead of change.

  517. * [Auto-Editor](https://github.com/WyattBlue/auto-editor)
  518. * Auto-Editor is a video editing tool that can automatically edit raw source video into a entertaining and polished video. It works by analyzing the video's audio to detect when a section needs to be cut, kept in, or zoomed in, then auto-editor runs a subprocess called ffmpeg to create the new video.

  520. * Cut the crap is an automatic video editing program for streamers. It can cut out uninteresting parts by detecting silences. This was inspired by jumpcutter, where this program can get better quality results by using an (optional) dedicated microphone track. This prevents cutting of quieter consonants for example. Using ffmpeg more efficiently also produces faster results and is less error prone.

This article describes what leads to this normalization and explains why flagrant practice deviations can persist for years, despite the importance of the standards at issue. This article also provides recommendations to aid healthcare organizations in identifying and managing unsafe practice deviations before they become normalized and pose genuine risks to patient safety, quality care, and employee morale.

This guide overviews broad areas of potential legal riskrelated to security research, and the types of security research likely implicated.We hope it will serve as a useful starting point for concerned researchers andothers. While the guide covers what we see as the main areas of legal risk forsecurity researchers, it is not exhaustive. It also doesn’t create a lawyer-clientrelationship between you and the authors. This guide focuses on U.S. law, and mostly federal law.Different U.S. statesand jurisdictions may have different laws, and even different interpretations ofthe same federal law. This guide does not do a state-by-state analysis, butrather focuses on federal law and how it is interpreted by most states. Todetermine which states’ law applies to your specific situation, consult a lawyer.This guide doesnotdiscuss risks associated with security research undernon-U.S. legal systems. Your activity may raise legal risks in legal systemsoutside of the U.S. if it takes place or has impacts outside the U.S., or involvesor impacts people who are governed by non-U.S. legal systems. Similarly, youractivity may be subject to U.S. legal liability (as well as liability under yourlocal law) even if it occurs primarily outside the U.S., if it has impacts in theU.S. or involves or involves U.S. people and/or equipment.2Finally, if your research involves human subjects and is aiming to pro-duce generalizable knowledge,3you should consult an institutional review board(IRB) or ethical review committee to ensure that you are in compliance withhuman testing rules, which are outside the scope of this Guide

It can mean anything from “Someone should run a vulnerability scan against a box” to “I’d like nation-state capable actors to tell me everything that wrong with my enterprise” and everything in between. Security testing is a complex subject and it can be hard to understand what the best type of testing is for a given situation. This talk will examine the breadth of software security testing. From early phase unit and abuse testing to late phase penetration testing, this talk will provide details on the different tests that can be performed, what to expect from the testing, and how to select the right tests for your situation. Test coverage, work effort, attack simulation, and reporting results will be discussed. Also, this talk will provide a process for detailed product assessments, i.e.: if you’ve got a specific product you’re trying to break, how do you approach assessing the product in a way that maximizes your chance of breaking in as well as maximizing the coverage you will get from your testing activity.

  604. * As a blue team, penetration tests are a critical part of your security program and finding a pen test company that can meet your needs is paramount. Unfortunately, there is no manual for hiring a pen tester. Sometimes you need to learn from mistakes and successes. This presentation will go over the experience of a penetration test from the customer’s perspective. You’ll hear stories of tests that were good, bad, and ugly. First, you need to determine what your goals are to pick the right kind of assessment. Then you can start looking at vendors. Asking some of the right questions beforehand can really set the stage for success. Contracts, scoping, and documentation can be a pain, but they are important. We will go over the things you want to cover. Afterward comes the report. What should you do if there are lots of findings? What if there aren’t any? We will cover answers to these and more to help make sure when you buy a pen test, you don’t end up with a pencil.

  607. * What can you do to step up your game as a security analyst? Vulnerability scanners and other security assessment tools can be extremely useful for collecting information quickly and efficiently, but what are some good next steps for analyzing and using that information? How much value does a raw vulnerability scan report provide (hint: don’t just hand this to a client or supervisor), and how much more value can we get out of our tools with a little bit of effort? What do you do when you need data that an existing tool can’t provide? John will discuss some areas in the security asssessment process that are ripe for easy wins through custom scripting, including data aggregation, diffing, false,positive identification, and visualization. As an example, John will release a tool for slicing and dicing the results from assessment tools in interesting ways, based on various techniques used in previous consulting engagements.

  610. * Stiff statistics, prismatic pie charts, and questionable survey results drown the Information Security space in a sea of never-ending numbers that can be difficult to sift through. Have you ever finished reading a research institution's annual security report and felt your Spidey sense begin to tingle with doubt or disbelief? What you are probably sensing is a manipulation of statistics, an age-old hoodwink that has been occurring as long as numbers have been used to convey information. This critical subject was first examined over 60 years ago, when Darrell Huff first published the groundbreaking book "How to Lie with Statistics," over 60 years ago. This presentation takes the foundation Huff created and updates the core concepts for the contemporary Information Security field. Most people would be shocked to find that data is often manipulated to lead the reader to a particular conclusion. Several areas are examined: bias in vendor-sponsored security reports, data visualization misuse and common security fallacies. There is a silver lining - once you are aware of the subtle ways data is manipulated, it's easy to spot. Attendees will walk away with a new understanding of ways to identify and avoid unintentionally using some of the methods described.

First of all, where other books simply dispense old and tired advice on remediating common vulnerabilities, The Tangled Web offers a detailed and thoroughly enjoyable account of both the "how" and the "why" of the modern web. In doing so, it enables you to deal with the seedy underbelly of contemporary, incredibly complex web apps. The other reason is that it is based on years of original research - including, of course, my Browser Security Handbook (2008). I think it is simply unmatched when it comes to the breadth and the quality of the material presented. It outlines dozens of obscure but remarkably important security policies, governing everything from content rendering to frame navigation - and affecting your applications in more ways than you may expect."
