C# for Blue Team

  • Zac Brown, Red Canary Principal Software Engineer
  • Adam Mathis, Red Canary Director of Information Security
  • Michael Sullivan, Red Canary Incident Handler

As adversaries extend tools and capabilities to use the .NET Framework, it is important for defenders to understand the architecture and opportunities for detection. This introductory to intermediate level training is designed to be a deep dive into .NET, by specifically working with C#.

Attendees will learn:

  • Modern uses of adversarial uses of C#
  • How to develop sample attacks and look at detection engineering.
  • How to understand and respond to .NET binaries encountered during an investigation.
