Presentation Title Xprobe-NG: Building Efficient Network Discovery Tools
Presentation Abstract

In this presentation, the authors of Xprobe will present a new version of their tool. Build to scale, with minimized network footprint new generation of xprobe is a tool designed for mass network scanning. The tool includes a number of improvements to the signature engine and fuzzy signature matching process.

Additionally, the new version of the tool includes a number of significant enhancements, such as use of test information gain weighting. The network traffic overhead minimization algorithm uses the test weights to re-order network probes and optimize module execution sequence. The new version of the tool tool also includes modules to perform target system probing at the application layer. The authors will also present new python API for xprobe extensions and lots of demos will be included ;-)
