Hacking Identity: A Pen Tester’s Guide to IAM


Jerod Brennen, Security Solutions Architect, One Identity

Abstract: Know your opponent and know yourself. It held true for Sun Tzu 2500 years ago, and it holds true for pen testers today. A pen tester who has worked in sec ops role has a distinct advantage, especially if that pen tester has a solid grasp of the good, the bad, and the ugly of identity and access management (IAM) in an enterprise setting. For red teams, this presentation will cover pen testing tips and tricks to circumvent weak or missing IAM controls. For blue teams, we'll also cover the steps you can take to shore up your IAM controls and catch pen testers in the act. Purple teaming, FTW!

Bio: By day, Jerod (@slandail) is a Security Solutions Architect with One Identity.

By night, he's a husband, father, writer, filmmaker, martial artist, musician, and gamer. I think it's fair to say that he's earned every gray hair in his beard, having spent his career fulfilling infosec roles in consulting, higher education, retail, and public utilities.

Jerod loves to share what he's learned over the years every chance he gets: at local and regional information security professional organizations, at larger information security conferences, and online via blogs and podcasts. He also teaches online information security courses for Pluralsight and LinkedIn Learning, as well as in-person courses, both domestically and internationally.

At the end of the day, Jerod just wants to help folks get one step closer to doing what they want to do securely.
