Forensic Challenge - VOIP systems
As part of my
contribution to the Honeynet Project, we have released
the forth instalment in the "Forensic challenge" series. This challenge
is focused in the world of VOIP telephony, which is a burgeoning area
and one that is unfortunately often neglected when it comes to security
treatment, and in particular in the study of the threat/incident
environment. I've been studying the threat environment for over 18
months, working closely with the Norwegian chapter - you can read about
some of this work in my honeynet blog.
The "VOIP forensic
challenge" consists of real world attack data, and
poses some technical and reflective questions which challenge
participants to piece together the clues, and discover some hidden
attributes of the attacks. Participants will learn much about VOIP
along the way, and as a result they will be better armed to mitigate
the risk of attacks to VOIP systems.
For the first time, we
have translated the challenge into Chinese -
both Traditional and Simplified versions. This will make the challenge
accessible to an additional billion people. We are very excited about
this, and are hoping for unprecedented participation. In designing the
challenge, we formed a team with members from Norway, Hong Kong, China,
Taiwan, Singapore, France and the US. I'm continually impressed by the
collaborative global environment that exsists at the Honeynet project.
If you are in a position
to advertise the challenge to students or
security teams - please feel free to do so. Remember the goal is to
participate, enjoy and learn!
