Portland Linux/Unix Group: Mozilla Socorro Open Source crash reporting tool
PSU Maseeh Engineering Building

Mozilla Socorro: an Open Source crash reporting system evolves.

Socorro collects and analyzes three million crash reports a day employing PostgreSQL, HBase, Hadoop, and ElasticSearch glued together with Python. Socorro's data analysis drives the stability and development priorities of Firefox. Five years ago, Socorro was a system that ran on three machines and was tended by just one person. In 2013, it has evolved to become a distributed system running on 120 machines and serving hundreds of terabytes of data. Meanwhile, companies all over the world are adopting Socorro for crash reporting. This talk, an update of one given several years ago, will track the evolution of Socorro and its future in the upcoming world of FirefoxOS.

K Lars Lohn is the Herd Patriarch of the Mozilla WebTools Group. As the author and curator of the Mozilla Socorro Crash Reporting System, Lars has driven its evolution. Formerly with the OSUOSL, Lars telecommutes for Mozilla from a farm near Corvallis. While preferring Python, PostgreSQL and Harleys, Lars is versed in C++, MySQL and Subarus.

Many will head to the Lucky Lab NW after the meeting

Portland Elasticsearch Meetup: Jeff Bryner from Mozilla, Kibana 4 and Shield Preview
Jama South

Join us at Jama South for food, drink, and Elasticsearch discussion.

Our Guest Speaker: Jeff Bryner ( @0x7eff ) is a 20+year infosec veteran/addict. Speaker at 3 DEF CONs, 3 Bsides, and 1 RSA (but he didn't mean it), he stands accused of re-writing everything in python, integrating security tools into 3D worlds with kinectasploit and taunting the Demo Gods in every presentation.

His Presentation: Hackers have all the fun. With slick, integrated, real-time, open suites like metasploit, armitage, SET, and lair they quickly seek out targets, share exploits, gain footholds and usually win.

The time has come for defense to get the same capabilities in an open-source platform dedicated to defense and based on modern technology. To this end the operations security group at Mozilla has developed MozDef: The Mozilla Defense Platform to take on traditional SIEM functionality of event management, alerting and correlation and expand the real-time capabilities of the defender into automated defense and shared incident response.

This presentation will cover the MozDef platform, its use of Elasticsearch and it's SIEM capabilities with as much live demo as the gods will allow.

The rest of the Agenda:

We also plan on going deep on Kibana 4, the powerful new version of Kibana that takes advantage of the aggregations API in Elasticsearch. A rewrite from the ground up, visualizations are now powered by D3js and provides an enhances workflow capability allowing you to Discover, Visualize and Dashboard your data for insights.

Shield is right around the corner and we will be giving an intro to it at the meetup. Learn how to enable access control, document level security, SSL and more!

We will also have a few Elasticsearch Solution Architects in town so its a great chance to get your questions answered by people that are in the field every day helping customers succeed with Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana (The ELK Stack).

Hope to see you all there!

Pentesting: Find Where Your Systems are Vulnerable

TA3M is back, and we have a great meeting lined up for you!

There have been a number of stories in the news lately about hacking and data breaches, and we all want our personal data to be secure. In order to prevent these attacks on our privacy, an important step is to identify any vulnerabilities in the computer systems that store our private data before those faults can be used to steal the data. And that's where penetration testing comes in. Penetration testing, or "pentesting," is a process of attacking computer systems in order to find security weaknesses so that they can be fixed before criminals and other malicious actors find and take advantage of them.

Please join us for a fascinating presentation that will examine some common computer attacks and preventative steps that we can take to avoid them. Karl Fosaaen, from NetSPI, will talk about working as a pentester and will discuss avoiding exploits in applications and networks and how to counter social engineering attacks.

We'll have snacks, and there will be an opportunity for networking following the talk. We hope to see you there!

Speaker Bio:

Karl is a Managing Consultant with NetSPI who specializes in network and web application penetration testing. With over eight years of consulting experience in the computer security industry, he has worked in a variety of industries and has made his way through many Active Directory domains. Karl also holds a BS in Computer Science from the University of Minnesota. This year, he has spent a fair amount of time digging into the Skype for Business APIs. Prior to that, Karl has helped build out and maintain NetSPI's GPU cracking boxes. Karl has previously spoken at THOTCON, BSidesMSP, BSidesPDX, and DerbyCon. In his spare time, you may see him trying to sell you a t-shirt as a swag goon at DEF CON.
