New tools and some docs..

Hi i'm back from the vacations, i will start posting more frequently than before, it's an objetive that i set.

Well let's move on the first post, it is about some new tools and documents from the last weeks.

Docs:

Blackhat and Defcon are over, and the presentations and whitepapers could be downloaded from here:

Blackhat: http://164.106.251.250/docs/netsec/bh2007/
Defcon: http://164.106.251.250/docs/dc15/

There are a lot of presentations, and some are really good.


Tools:

Nmap-SOC:
First Nmap SOC release! Nmap 4.22SOC1

The new nmap version is available, with all the improvements proposed in the Summer Of Code (Google). Some of the highlights are:

-The UMIT graphical Nmap frontend is now included
-The port selection mechanism was overhauled
-Added the --reason option which explains WHY Nmap assigned a port status
-Integrated all of your 2nd generation OS detection submissions, increasing the database size by 68% since 4.21ALPHA4 to 699 fingerprints.
-Added --servicedb and --versiondb command-line options which allow you to specify a custom Nmap services (port to port number translation and port frequency) file or version detection database.
-In verbose mode, Nmap now reports where it obtains data files (such as nmap-services) from.

These are some of the more significant (at least for me), there are many more improvements on the release.

Umit: Nmap frontend.

Really a very good frontend, with a lot of functionalities, like comparing between different scans, saving scans, multiple tabs, profiles, information highlighting, etc. This project is sponsored by the Google Summer Of Code.

Evolution: Massive information Gathering.

Evolution is a program that can be used to determine the relationships and real world links between different entities. Really it worths a try. I liked a lot the GUI, is still in beta stage, but is really awesome the interface.

Immunity Debugger:

The new toy from Immunity guys, this is a new debugger oriented for vulnerability analysis, and security related task. It's programmed in python :), you can load python scripts to aid the analysis. Immunity says:

-A debugger with functionality designed specifically for the security industry
-Cuts exploit development time by 50%
-Simple, understandable interfaces
-Robust and powerful scripting language for automating intelligent debugging
-Lightweight and fast debugging to prevent corruption during complex analysis
-Connectivity to fuzzers and exploit development tools



Really a very good tool.
