DNS - Transitioning from an Attack Vector to a Security Control
The Domain Name System (DNS) has long been a recognized attack target. Today, with 90% of malware leveraging DNS at various stages of the cyber kill chain, DNS has also become a top attack vector. However, the tables can be turned on the threat actors by leveraging DNS and the associated DNS platform as an efficient and effective security control. Evolution: Automated threat analysis using an open source tool(pytm). We will talk through the making of pytm and then do a demo.
