BSc Computer Science, 2nd class division 1 - 2010
University of East Anglia
My third year project focused on a scalable distributed attack platform. This utilised distributed computing to interrogate an external/internal infrastructure. Perform a targeted attack and then a deep analysis of the network, stealthily analysing and reporting on network/system activity. The project used JAVA to form a distributed platform using the Metasploit Framework in conjunction with JRuby to distribute commands. The reconnaissance side used C++ to sniff and gather intelligence which was then embedded into images (steganography) and then uploaded to social networking sites. Password cracking was also used to help break passwords gathered from compromised systems for which I wrote a distributed version of Rainbow tables in JAVA. This JAVA Wrapper for Metasploit, known as JSploit can be downloaded from Google Code.
