Next Meeting: *Monday April 16th from 7:00 - 8:00 PM*

*OWASP Philly/ Meeting - Fisher-Bennett Hall - 231*

*When:* Monday, Monday April 16th from 7:000 - 8:00 PM
*Where:* University of Pennsylvania, Fisher-Bennett Hall - 231, Philadelphia

*Title: HECTOR, our evolving security intelligence platform*
*Presenter:* Justin Klein Keane


Asset management is an ever present challenge for any IT organization, and
especially so for information security groups. Even more challenging is
data aggregation for intelligent security analysis (or security
intelligence). HECTOR is an effort by the University of Pennsylvania's
School of Arts and Sciences to provide such a security intelligence
platform. Organizing assets, scanning for vulnerabilities and profiles,
correlating attacks on your network to services offered by hosts, tracking
changes, following remediation, and making information available to
multiple users via a web interface are all goals of HECTOR. HECTOR
leverages honeypot technology, darknet sensors, port scans, vulnerability
scans, intrusion detection systems, the powerful open source MySQL
database, and a PHP based web front end to provide security intelligence to
security practitioners.

HECTOR is an evolving, open source effort that attempts to leverage a wide
variety of tools and information sources to empower security practitioners
with better insights as well as to track and trend security related data.
Come hear about HECTOR in advance the official open source launch at the
Educause Security Professionals 2012 conference. Presentation material will
include a discussion of the philosophy behind HECTOR, the open source
technologies that make HECTOR work, as well as design challenges and
solutions. Even if you don't end up using HECTOR the presentation seeks to
spur new ideas and ways of thinking about asset management and security
