Tenable Research Engineers to Speak at Sharkfest 2011

June 13, 2011 to June 16, 2011

SHARKFEST is an annual gathering, instantiated in 2007, with the purpose of providing a forum for knowledge-sharing between the global Wireshark and Open Source development community and users of the world's most popular and widely-deployed network analyzer. Participants receive a rich educational experience, allowing all to extend their use of Wireshark and other Open Source tools to make the most of their data analysis experiences and existing network infrastructure.


Tenable research engineers Lucas Tamagna-Darr and Ro Bowes will be speaking at Sharkfest, giving their unique perspective on Wireshark. As vulnerability researchers, Lucas and Ro use Wireshark every day to understand a variety of network protocols - some that Wireshark recognizes, and some that it doesn't. In this presentation, they will begin by demonstrating how they use wireshark to analyze known network traffic to identify applications (and sometimes their versions) on a particular host. Then they will walk the audience through the process of using free tools, including Wireshark, to analyze and document a new protocol that Wireshark does not yet recognize.


Lucas Tamagna-Darr works as a Vulnerability Rsearch Engineer for Tenable Network Security where he develops plugins for both Nessus and the Passive Vulnerability Scanner. He has a Masters in Computer Security and Information Assurance from the Rochester Institute of Technology.


Ron Bowes, also a Vulnerability Research Engineer for Tenable, is best known for his contributions to open source security software including the Nmap Security Scanner, for which he has written dozens of scripts covering a number of complex protocols. He has a Bachelor of Computer Science from the University of Manitoba, runs a Winnipeg-based security consulting company (Dash9 Security), and is a founding member of SkullSpace - Winnipeg`s first and only hackerspace.
