Cybercrime is on the rise and may, in fact, become the world’s third-largest economy by 2021. Cheap, easy-to-obtain domain names, IP addresses and other DNS assets are helping to fuel today’s cybercrime, from spam and phishing to more sophisticated nation-state attacks. In this three-part webinar series, you will learn how to identify and dismantle malicious infrastructure using Passive DNS.
Farsight DNSDB is the industry standard in historical passive DNS data. Learn from Farsight Security CEO Dr. Paul Vixie, as he teaches the fundamental investigative techniques and methodologies of how to use DNSDB to combat common cyberattacks. Starting with a single IOC (indicator of compromise), Dr. Vixie will step through how to pivot through domain infrastructure to build intelligence of associated malicious activity.
In Part II and Part III of this series, you will be able to build on your knowledge to execute more advance pivoting techniques including how to uncover obfuscated or hidden domain names and IP addresses and how to query DNSDB API using Farsight’s Command Line tool, dnsbq.
