    PASCAL Hackerspace - Tools That Pwn: A Hacker Symposium

    PASCAL

    This Saturday at PASCAL we are offering a Hacker Symposium of sorts, featuring a few handy tools of the trade as well as two major frameworks often used in developing exploits and attacking systems or networks. We will be surveying several of the tools that are part of Kali, and easy to install on any Debian derived distro. It seems many folks, sometimes even the professionals already hip deep in the field of tech, are unaware of the power their packages wield! The wild hacker kidz at PASCAL are going to show you how to get started with packaged/pre-loaded tools like Burp Suite, Binwalk, Wireshark, Kismet and will also provide you with an overview of the Metasploit and Volatility frameworks. Come take your first step with Reverse Engineering at PASCAL using Binwalk! Excuse yourself and set up a proxy with Burp Suite! Breath deep and sniff packets with Kismet! Enjoy these puns and more, in person with MrDe4d, Cylon, Wireglitch and the rest of the misfit hackers of PDX this Saturday!

    We will set aside time to answer questions, and hold demonstrations of each utility discussed. This is all about what YOU want to learn!! The future workshop will be scheduled after all Q&A and demos are complete and will take place 2-4 weeks after, at which point we will continue the series until we have completed a thorough review of each tool.
    Questions? please email MrDe4d--> [masked] or Cylon--> [masked]. We can also be found on the encrypted messaging app called Wire, which is available for desktop, Android and Apple devices (@mrdead or @wireglitch for invites to the PASCAL channel.)
    PASCAL has snacks and drinks for some dollars and cents, though everyone is welcome to bring their own food and drink.
    Final Note: if you RSVP and are no longer able to make it, please do take the time to change your RSVP so that someone else may attend, even if it is only an hour before! Thanks!

  • PASCAL Hackerspace - Foundations: SSH Fundamentals

    PASCAL

    SSH is the protocol that makes possible the secure administration of remote Unix-like systems. Any aspiring Linux hacker would do well to understand a little bit about how SSH works, and what it can do.

    In this presentation, we're taking you through the basics of the ubiquitous OpenSSH implementation. We're going to cover the SSH client, the server, keys, best practices, and useful features like tunneling.

    To participate in the interactive portion of the event, bring a laptop that runs MacOS, or Linux either natively or in a virtual machine.

    As a supplement, we will be distributing digital copies of SSH Mastery by Michael Lucas.

    Please RSVP if you're coming, and let us know if you can't make it so we can make room for others.

    PASCAL Hackerspace - Hacking $mart Contracts

    PASCAL

    Exciting news, Pascalians! PASCAL Hackerspace will be hosting the world-renowned Dean Pierce for a presentation and workshop on hacking smart contracts!! Come learn about the basic concepts surrounding smart contracts and the latest in keeping them secure!

    What to expect during a Dean Pierce presentation: knowledge, verbs, adjectives, human hand gestures, an insider look at how smart contracts are created and how they are manipulated, lulz, and if we are lucky, maybe he will shed some light on how smart contract hacks can be applied to one of PASCAL's favorite pastimes- CTFs (fingers crossed this may be included in the workshop portion.)

    A bit more about Dean. Dean is an OG Portland hacker and definitely a human. When he isn't making and breaking blockchainz, he's out doing human things such as bipedal walking, eating a food and consuming oxygen.

    We hope to see you there!

    PASCAL Hackerspace - 802.11x Total Domination via Warwalking
    through
    PASCAL

    Hackers of the night- unite! There are many cliches revolving around hackers and hacker culture that are, well, true. For example, we are night owls; we thrive in the night and do our best work in the dark. We use caffeine as our main source of energy and Sour Patch Kidz as our main source of nutrition. We wear black hoodies and carry backpacks full of gear as we stalk through night, avoiding the moonlight and sticking to the shadows as we totally, completely, and utterly ravage the city's WiFi!

    Speaking of gear, here is a general list of items you will need to participate in this quest for[masked]x Total Domination: an Android phone (rooted or not rooted, with or without Kali installed BUT! You will probably want a rooted Android device because you will need monitor mode. You can skip the rooting and use a Raspberry Pi 3 and ssh into it with a non rooted phone via a terminal app), pretty much any Alpha radio, omni & directional antennae, and an insatiable appetite for learning.

    If you do not have access to or do not have time to acquire all or some of the gear listed- do not fret. Stay calm, and warwarlk on. Actually, just let us know what you are missing or which item you would like to test out and we will do our best to provide (you can let us know via Meetup, actually, by answering the question when you RSVP..this is one of those rare instances in which the question isn't totally superfluous.)

    MOAR DETAILS
    Warwalking is similar to Wardriving except we take to the city on foot, not in a vehicle. Your hand/eye/foot coordination will be put to the ultimate test as you try not to trip and fall and result in a 9gag meme while passively collecting node and AP data. Which brings me to a very important point that you may have been wondering about...YES! IT IS LEGAL! As mentioned, warwalking and wardriving is the act of PASSIVELY collecting data, and sometimes taking note of this data (check out warchalking for lulz.)
    We will meet at PASCAL Hackerspace at 11pm/2300hrs, and be headed out, on foot, at 11:30pm sharp after doing a gear check and making sure everyone is pumped! In case you are new to the Portland area, be warned that light rain is to be expected any time, anywhere and you should be sure you're wearing comfortable clothing. Also, we will not make fun of you if you decide to go full RPG-mode (Cylon has been known to dress head to toe as Aiden Pierce for no other reason than he felt like it and it is fun!) So, dust off your combat boot/trench coat ensemble and be Neo for a night! Or keep it simple with thick prescription sunglasses and work it like Whistler! Ok, I'm done alliterating...

    Questions? Find us on Wire Encrypted Messaging app (it's like Slack but encrypted!) and send a connection request to MrDe4d (@mrdead) or Wireglitch (@wireglitch). You can also email us at [masked] or [masked] or [masked].
