Tales from the Trench

This talk covers a few of my favorite stories from the past year and will demonstrate different ways that I managed to “own” an organization during a pentest engagement. Stories include:

No MFA? Thanks!

This story discusses how I obtained domain admin access as an external attacker, teaching some key lessons along the way.


This story discusses how IPv6 can be abused in internal networks and easily allow for complete domain compromise.

You Spent How Much on Security?

This story discusses how I obtained domain controller access on an organization that was doing *almost* everything right and spending a lot of money to do so.

Digging Deep

This story discusses how I managed to take down an internal network when no apparent exploit existed.

The Information Systems Security Association is a not-for-profit, international organization of information security professionals and practitioners. It provides educational forums, publications, and peer interaction opportunities that enhance the knowledge, skill, and professional growth of its members.

The Triad of NC chapter provides a local resource for information security professionals to get together, learn new things, and develop relationships with others in the industry. If you are involved in information security, full or part time, or are simply interested in the subject, this organization is a great way to learn and grow.
