How to Train Your Password Cracking Dragon

Password cracking is no longer rocket science but a handy skill for any penetration tester or system and network defender, or anyone who simply enjoys a good geek project. Watch our webinar series by Brian Johnson, a cybersecurity enthusiast from 7 Minute Security, to learn how to set up cracking tools in
the cloud (and on the cheap!) and better protect your organisation’s Active Directory environment.

Summoning the Password Cracking Beast

Learning how to crack passwords is fun and incredibly useful for assessing the security of your IT environment. It used to be a considerable time and money sponge, requiring you to drop a big chunk of change on a beefy desktop and invest some serious time in building and configuring it. The good news is that now, thanks to the power of the cloud, we can build a rocking virtual cracking box that can try millions of password guesses per second — all for about a dollar an hour.

In this session, you will learn how to:
  • Build a Linux-based password-cracking VM in minutes
  • Install and configure cracking tools and word lists
  • Crack Active Directory and wireless passwords
  • Make sure your password policy is strong enough to resist password cracking

Protecting Your Active Directory Castle

Hackers love it when we choose weak or leaked passwords for our most important accounts. What if we could better protect our companies by preventing users from picking over 500 million known bad passwords? And better yet, what if we could do this for free?

In this session, you will learn how to:
  • Download and customise the popular Pwned Passwords list
  • Incorporate Pwned Passwords into Active Directory for free using the open source PwnedPasswordsDLL project
  • Build customised lists of additional bad passwords
  • Enforce a strong password policy and monitor for unauthorised changes to it using Netwrix Auditor
