Aaron Jones: Rehash - Shodan
Due to the fact Aaron will be presenting his Shodan talk to the Fed, he will be presenting it again at SPLUG for practice.
Introduction To Shodan is a two-hour course designed to provide an overview of the search engine for finding devices connected to the internet. Shodan is a security researcher tool that works by scanning the entire internet, locating and parsing banners, and then returning this information to the user. Shodan is an excellent tool to familiarize yourself with if you do not have the infrastructure or tools necessary to run masscan yourself. Shodan is useful in the target selection phase of an operation.
