RAPID7’S HD MOORE AND ANDRÉS RIANCHO TO PRESENT AT SECTOR 2010 CONFERENCE

Security Experts to Illustrate Efficient Penetration Tests and Web Application Implementations Using Leading Open Source Frameworks

Rapid7®, the leading provider of unified vulnerability management and penetration testing solutions, today announced that HD Moore, Rapid7 chief security officer and Metasploit chief architect, and Andrés Riancho, director of Web security at Rapid7 and w3af founder, will both be speaking at the SecTor Security conference, taking place October 25-27, 2010. These sessions will focus on educating attendees about performing efficient penetration tests and using open source tools for avoiding common security pitfalls.

During the conference, Moore will give two separate presentations. In the first, he will speak about Metasploit Pro™, the latest commercial penetration testing tool built on the acclaimed open source Metasploit® Framework and how the new solution improves the efficiency of penetration testing. In the second, Moore will present “Beyond Exploits: Real World Penetration Testing,” which will focus on the abuse of design flaws, configuration errors and information leaks to gain access to typical environments. He will utilize the Metasploit Framework as a demonstration platform to illustrate how low-risk information leaks can be combined to gain administrative access to a target network.

In addition, Riancho will be presenting "Web Application Payloads,” where he will introduce the topic to attendees and show a working implementation of Web application payloads. It was developed as a part of the w3af framework, an open source Web application attack and audit framework, sponsored by Rapid7 as a part of its Web Application Security Center of Excellence for Web security.

Rapid7’s Senior Director of Security Strategy and Head of Strategic Partners & Alliances, Sheldon Malm, also serves as a SecTor Advisory Committee member and will be on sight throughout the conference.
