SecureState Analyst Reveals Tool of the Trade

March 31, 2015

CLEVELAND, OH -  It’s technically yummy, but you can’t eat it.  You will, however, want one – especially if you crave cybersecurity. 

“This gives you one of those movie-type scenarios, where you can walk into a building, connect the device to the network and pentest from outside,” creator Jeremy Schoeneman described.

Schoeneman is a research analyst, specializing in penetration testing and attack services, at SecureState. What he’s describing is a Raspberry Pi Pentester, a cybersecurity device used by ethical hackers at SecureState. This is just one of the tools SecureState uses to determine the security vulnerabilities of a businesses’ computer network.

“All you have to do is plug in a properly configured device, such as the Pi Pentester I have created, sit it somewhere obscure, such as a lobby or public area of the building, then connect to the private network this Pi is broadcasting,” explained Schoeneman.

Sounds like science fiction?  It’s not.
