For this month's Security Meeting, Aaron Jones will be giving us an "Introduction to Shodan"

Introduction To Shodan is a two-hour course designed to provide an overview of the search engine for finding devices connected to the internet. Shodan is a security researcher tool that works by scanning the entire internet, locating and parsing banners, and then returning this information to the user. Shodan is an excellent tool to familiarize yourself with if you do not have the infrastructure or tools necessary to run masscan yourself. Shodan is useful in the target selection phase of an operation.

For this month's security meeting we will have a presentation by Todd Stewart from SRP's Cyber Security department on "5 Habits of Highly Secure People"


Todd Stewart: 5 Habits of Highly Secure People

The presentation will cover the challenges of defending critical infrastructure in today’s Cyber World. It will also cover how to develop healthy cyber security habits at home.

The goal of this presentation is to change your perception of cyber security and empower you to be accountable for cyber security at your job and at home.

Here's a list of links that Todd passed along after his presentation:

Join the Phoenix Linux Users Group at their Security Session to learn about why the internet is a terrible place now. We will be discussing how the internet has turned into a tool for surveillance, monitoring, and the constant delivery of malware and other exploits. We will discuss how others are creating alternative 'networks' and how technology from the 70's could be used to help reduce our reliance on corporate backers for access to the web. We will learn about Packet Radio, Mesh Networks, and other forms of digital communication that are effective community builders. Hope to see you there!
