Using Suricata to detect lateral movement in Windows environment
2023-07-05, 14:35–15:10 (Europe/Paris), Amphitheater

Suricata can be used to provide visibility and build detection of lateral movement in Windows environment using dedicated signatures or analysis of network security monitoring data. The talk will provide practical methods to increase visibility and provide detection of attacks.

This talk will describe how Suricata IDS and NSM features can be used to detect lateral movement in Windows based environments. The focus will be made on SMB based attacks (including Red Team Tooling) as with a specific attention on DCERPC layer of SMB but data extracted from protocols such as Kerberos will also be looked at.

The talk will include a presentation of the free SMB lateral ruleset published by Stamus Networks . It will show some practical hunting techniques that can be used when working with SMB protocol.
