Defcon 8 speach:
syke - Open Source Utilities and How To Use Them to Test IDSes and Firewalls (12.9M MP3)
This talk showcases free/open-source utilities and how to use them to test IDSes and firewalls. There have been a few talks on the common weaknesses of both kinds of products, but no practical means by which to test for said weaknesses. The point of the talk is to enable people to test vendor's claims (or their own products) themselves. This talk would be of interest to developers, security admins, product reviewers, and white/blackhat hackers. Knowledge of TCP/IP and programming are recommended.
