Tour of the Network Operations Center (NOC) at the 2015 Black Hat Conference

“It’s the best thing in the world. It’s like having the shiniest toy on Christmas,” said Neil “Grifter” Wyler (@Grifter801), of what it’s like to set up, run, and thwart hackers from penetrating the NOC (network operations center) at the 2015 Black Hat Conference.

The NOC at Black Hat is responsible for all network operations at the conference. This includes the training, briefings, and conference wi-fi. Wyler is one of the leads in charge of setting up the NOC. This year is the first year they’ve opened the doors of the NOC to the public, so anyone can see what they’re doing. They’re literally in a glass cage and onlookers can come by and gawk.

Not everything is necessarily appropriate for the public, such as IP addresses (which had to be hidden before I began filming), silly behavior, and sleeping on the floor. Luckily, this year there was a significant upgrade and Wyler and his staff will be sleeping on couches.
