PASCAL Hackerspace - Tools That Pwn: A Hacker Symposium
PASCAL

This Saturday at PASCAL we are offering a Hacker Symposium of sorts, featuring a few handy tools of the trade as well as two major frameworks often used in developing exploits and attacking systems or networks. We will be surveying several of the tools that are part of Kali, and easy to install on any Debian derived distro. It seems many folks, sometimes even the professionals already hip deep in the field of tech, are unaware of the power their packages wield! The wild hacker kidz at PASCAL are going to show you how to get started with packaged/pre-loaded tools like Burp Suite, Binwalk, Wireshark, Kismet and will also provide you with an overview of the Metasploit and Volatility frameworks. Come take your first step with Reverse Engineering at PASCAL using Binwalk! Excuse yourself and set up a proxy with Burp Suite! Breath deep and sniff packets with Kismet! Enjoy these puns and more, in person with Cylon and the rest of the misfit hackers of PDX!

We will set aside time to answer questions, and hold demonstrations of each utility discussed. This is all about what YOU want to learn!! Questions? please email Cylon--> [masked]. PASCAL also has a Discord server as means of communication regarding upcoming events, news in infosec and memes (inquire within).
If you RSVP and are no longer able to make it, please do take the time to change your RSVP so that someone else may attend, even if it is only an hour before! Thanks!

PASCAL Hackerspace - Going Commando!
226 SE Madison St

That's right, watch some guy stand up in front of a room of people and go full commando! Whoa, don't get too excited there. I will be wearing clean...ish undergarments. By "going commando", I am referring to conducting any and all of your everyday computing tasks from the command line! Everything from being productive in an office environment to posting the twitters and streamin' the youtubes! Why, you ask? We are all hackers here aren't we? And what hacker doesn't want to look as cool in real life as we do in the movies? So come and enjoy all the typie-typie carpal tunnel goodness!

Joe Cathell (that's Ca-THELL, not cat+hell..even though Joe is something of a crazy cat man) is an infosec professional at the Washington University in St. Louis. When he's not defending our next generation of doctors from Russian hackers (true story, ask him!), he can usually be found at the Arch Reactor Hackerspace. Joe is both a founding member of Arch Reactor and serving as the current president of the board of directors. He is also a co-organizer of the monthly STL2600 and DC314 meetup, as well as a regular presenter. He likes blue raspberry Icees, building robots and competitive butter sculpting.

PASCAL Hackerspace - AlgoBytes: Algorithms for Hackers!
PASCAL

PASCAL Hackerspace is happy to announce a new bimonthly workshop! One of the core goals of our organization is to provide educational opportunities to people in the information security and technical communities of Portland, and with AlgoBytes we get to do exactly that!

AlgoBytes is an informal workshop series to learn a bit more about the formal foundations of the field of computer science and about core data structures/algorithms frequently used for interviews, whether you've never explored them before or need a refresher.

Each 90 minute session we will focus on a different topic, although we may repeat them if there are requests to revisit material. Currently there will be 20-30 minutes of presentation, a walk through of a problem, followed by breaking into small groups to practice. Attending sequential events is probably helpful if the material is new to you, but not required.

First Session's Theme: Analysis Foundations

What is an algorithm, besides a scary word?
I'm a practical person, why do I care?
What is a data structure?
What is complexity analysis?
What is Big O? Big Theta? Big Omega?
How do I apply them?

Please bring your preferred note-taking device(s) and preferred scratch paper.

A laptop with your editor & language of choice may be handy for trying out your solutions- especially important if you are prepping for technical interviews, but is not at all required.

The PASCAL board is excited to be hosting this event alongside a very accomplished and brilliant woman in security-

Allison Marie Naaktgeboren is a Senior Software Engineer. She has previously written (and regretted) code at Mozilla, Amazon, Cisco, FactSet Research Systems, and the Biorobotics Laboratory in Carnegie Mellon’s Robotics Institute. Allison holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.

Allison is a mentor in the PDXWiT mentorship program, supports the Women Who Code Portland Algorithms track, and mentors high school students in robotics and programming (Go Rebel @lliance!) She is a member of PASCAL & the OWASP Portland chapter.

Portland SaaS Founders - Customer Acquisition Strategies for SaaS
US Custom House / WeWork

Acquiring customers for our SaaS companies is arguably one of the most difficult challenges we face. We need to figure it out what works and what doesn't work, and we need to do it before the money runs out.


In this Meetup we'll discuss:

• The marketing strategies that are working for us, and the ones that didn't.


• Lessons we learned taking our products to market.

• Paid vs organic marketing channels: which ones are best for every stage of growth.

• How we've identified our most profitable market segments and how we're providing value to them.


• Social media, search engine marketing, PR and advertising. Pros and cons of each channel, and which ones are right for us.


Coffee, tea and draft beer will be provided. Come hang out with other SaaS founders and share your story!

PDX Women in Tech (PDXWIT) Happy Hour Networking Event
Urban Studio

** Please RSVP on Eventbrite HERE **

Join us for happy hour at Urban Studio, sponsored by Lyft and in partnership with Tech Ladies!

As a woman-focused community, we’ve decided it is no longer enough for our support of other underrepresented groups to be implied. This month, we’ve decided it is time to focus on the interconnectedness of the various social categorizations and dedicate the theme of this event to “Intersectionality,” with a conversation starter of “What’s a recent book, writer or film that has changed your perspective?”

While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short segment at 5:30 to share important announcements and showcase two women from Lyft!

Introduction to Lyft, including what they do and what job opportunities are available!

Lita Cho, Senior Software Engineer at Lyft, will talk to us about how intersectionality has been woven into the company’s diversity and inclusion efforts.

Janani Sundarrajan, Software Engineer at Lyft, will talk about Lyft’s progressive Gender Inclusion and Affirmation policy which was recently released.

During the event, we’ll have an Activity Table where people can get creative. This is a fantastic way to meet others if large groups are not your thing. If you have trouble finding it, look forMeg Aul, our Event Activities Director.

PDXWIT is a community-based non-profit organization. Our purpose is to strengthen the Portland women in tech community by offering educational programs, partnerships, mentorships, resources and opportunities.

Portland SaaS Founders - Developing high functioning software teams for SaaS
US Custom House / WeWork

We're all faced with the challenge of creating an awesome software product for our customers. A big part of this is having a highly functional software development team.  

In this Meetup we'll discuss:

• When to develop software in-house versus outsourcing or partnering with another software platform. Some SaaS companies utilize a mix of in-house and outsourced developers. We'll brainstorm various possible approaches.

• How do you train new developers?  What approaches have been successful and what has been a dismal failure? - Does it make sense to hire senior developers only or a mix of junior and senior developers?

• Team / project organization - Do you do daily standups? How do your organize sprints? How are deadlines established and by whom? Is your team in the same office or are some remote? What tools do you use (Slack, Trello, etc.)? With all of the bugs, feature requests, UI overhauls, when do you ship updates to the product?

• Communication and transparency - How do you speak to the rest of the team in a language everyone understands? Do you hold weekly/bi-weekly meetings to announce progress? How do you showcase new features to clients?

Coffee, tea and draft beer will be provided. Come hang out with other SaaS founders and share your story!


If there's more on this topic you would like to discuss, send us a message and we'll try and get it added to the agenda.

PASCAL Hackerspace - Hacking+PASCAL=Hack2Learn
226 SE Madison St

Hack2Learn is a monthly CTF (capture the flag) meetup hosted at PASCAL in Portland, OR. PASCAL is an organization of equal opportunity hackers, and we will be introducing you to all the various types of challenges that you might face at any level, and at any time in the fields of information security and technology as a whole, for fun or profit.
Hacker/Tech culture and community can sometimes be a bit (or a byte ^_^) off-putting, especially to those trying to figure out what exactly it is, what we are and what we do. During this meetup at PASCAL, we welcome n00bs with open arms! Never competed in a CTF challenge before? Never even heard of CTFs? Do you have a strong desire to learn & teach alongside peers? GOOD!! You will fit right in at Hack2Learn!
For the first Hack2Learn meetup, we will walk you through the setup process, starting with installing a virtual machine and setting up a beginner friendly Linux environment (Kali counts as beginner friendly, right?), followed by a lightning lesson on command line. Once everyone is ready, we will dive right in to a STEMCTF challenge created by MITRE Cyber Academy. Basic understanding of at least one programming language and/or security concepts is helpful, but not necessary. Honestly, when we say all you need is a desire to learn, we mean it!
If you have a laptop, bring it. We have a handful of loaners for those who need them, as well as several desktop PCs for use at the hackerspace. So, brush off your social anxiety, leave your impostor syndrome at the door, and let your inner hacker take a crack at capture the flag- PASCAL edition!

Questions? email [masked], or leave a comment on the meetup page (though we tend to not check that as often.)

We will set aside time to answer questions, and hold demonstrations of each utility discussed. This is all about what YOU want to learn!! The future workshop will be scheduled after all Q&A and demos are complete and will take place 2-4 weeks after, at which point we will continue the series until we have completed a thorough review of each tool.
Questions? please email MrD34d--> [masked] or Cylon--> [masked]. We can also be found on the encrypted messaging app called Wire, which is available for desktop, Android and Apple devices (@mrdead or @wireglitch for invites to the PASCAL channel.)

PASCAL Hackerspace - 802.11x Total Domination via Warwalking
through PASCAL

Hackers of the night- unite! There are many cliches revolving around hackers and hacker culture that are, well, true. For example, we are night owls; we thrive in the night and do our best work in the dark. We use caffeine as our main source of energy and Sour Patch Kidz as our main source of nutrition. We wear black hoodies and carry backpacks full of gear as we stalk through night, avoiding the moonlight and sticking to the shadows as we totally, completely, and utterly ravage the city's WiFi!

Speaking of gear, here is a general list of items you will need to participate in this quest for[masked]x Total Domination: an Android phone (rooted or not rooted, with or without Kali installed BUT! You will probably want a rooted Android device because you will need monitor mode. You can skip the rooting and use a Raspberry Pi 3 and ssh into it with a non rooted phone via a terminal app), pretty much any Alpha radio, omni & directional antennae, and an insatiable appetite for learning.

If you do not have access to or do not have time to acquire all or some of the gear listed- do not fret. Stay calm, and warwarlk on. Actually, just let us know what you are missing or which item you would like to test out and we will do our best to provide (you can let us know via Meetup, actually, by answering the question when you RSVP..this is one of those rare instances in which the question isn't totally superfluous.)

MOAR DETAILS
Warwalking is similar to Wardriving except we take to the city on foot, not in a vehicle. Your hand/eye/foot coordination will be put to the ultimate test as you try not to trip and fall and result in a 9gag meme while passively collecting node and AP data. Which brings me to a very important point that you may have been wondering about...YES! IT IS LEGAL! As mentioned, warwalking and wardriving is the act of PASSIVELY collecting data, and sometimes taking note of this data (check out warchalking for lulz.)
We will meet at PASCAL Hackerspace at 11pm/2300hrs, and be headed out, on foot, at 11:30pm sharp after doing a gear check and making sure everyone is pumped! In case you are new to the Portland area, be warned that light rain is to be expected any time, anywhere and you should be sure you're wearing comfortable clothing. Also, we will not make fun of you if you decide to go full RPG-mode (Cylon has been known to dress head to toe as Aiden Pierce for no other reason than he felt like it and it is fun!) So, dust off your combat boot/trench coat ensemble and be Neo for a night! Or keep it simple with thick prescription sunglasses and work it like Whistler! Ok, I'm done alliterating...

Questions? Find us on Wire Encrypted Messaging app (it's like Slack but encrypted!) and send a connection request to MrDe4d (@mrdead) or Wireglitch (@wireglitch). You can also email us at [masked] or [masked] or [masked].

For the October edition of Hack2Learn, we will be focusing on web and binary challenges. First we will make sure everyone is set up with a virtual machine and the OS of their choice (though Kali is recommended, specifically for the web challenges). For the binary challenges we will install Cutter which is something of an intro to Radare2. You are encouraged to familiarize yourself with Cutter and R2 prior to the workshop; take a look--> https://github.com/radareorg/cutter (note: downloading a VM and/or installing a new OS is not necessary for using Cutter when working on the binary challenges, unless you're using Mac OS in which case you will need to spin up a VM for either Windows or Linux).
Basic understanding of at least one programming language and/or security concepts is helpful, but not necessary. Honestly, when we say all you need is a desire to learn, we mean it!
Cylon is setting up a wireless hacking station for October H2L as well, and will be offering some hands-on experience to anyone interested in the wonderful world of wireless hax!
If you have a laptop, bring it. We have a handful of loaners for those who need them, as well as a few desktop PCs for use at the hackerspace. So, brush off your social anxiety, leave your impostor syndrome at the door, and let your inner hacker take a crack at capture the flag!

PASCAL Hackerspace - Hacking $mart Contracts
PASCAL

Exciting news, Pascalians! PASCAL Hackerspace will be hosting the world-renowned Dean Pierce for a presentation and workshop on hacking smart contracts!! Come learn about the basic concepts surrounding smart contracts and the latest in keeping them secure!

What to expect during a Dean Pierce presentation: knowledge, verbs, adjectives, human hand gestures, an insider look at how smart contracts are created and how they are manipulated, lulz, and if we are lucky, maybe he will shed some light on how smart contract hacks can be applied to one of PASCAL's favorite pastimes- CTFs (fingers crossed this may be included in the workshop portion.)

A bit more about Dean. Dean is an OG Portland hacker and definitely a human. When he isn't making and breaking blockchainz, he's out doing human things such as bipedal walking, eating a food and consuming oxygen.

We hope to see you there!

PASCAL Hackerspace - Foundations: SSH Fundamentals
PASCAL

SSH is the protocol that makes possible the secure administration of remote Unix-like systems. Any aspiring Linux hacker would do well to understand a little bit about how SSH works, and what it can do.

In this presentation, we're taking you through the basics of the ubiquitous OpenSSH implementation. We're going to cover the SSH client, the server, keys, best practices, and useful features like tunneling.

To participate in the interactive portion of the event, bring a laptop that runs MacOS, or Linux either natively or in a virtual machine.

As a supplement, we will be distributing digital copies of SSH Mastery by Michael Lucas.

Please RSVP if you're coming, and let us know if you can't make it so we can make room for others.

We will set aside time to answer questions, and hold demonstrations of each utility discussed. This is all about what YOU want to learn!! The future workshop will be scheduled after all Q&A and demos are complete and will take place 2-4 weeks after, at which point we will continue the series until we have completed a thorough review of each tool.
Questions? please email MrDe4d--> [masked] or Cylon--> [masked]. We can also be found on the encrypted messaging app called Wire, which is available for desktop, Android and Apple devices (@mrdead or @wireglitch for invites to the PASCAL channel.)
PASCAL has snacks and drinks for some dollars and cents, though everyone is welcome to bring their own food and drink.
Final Note: if you RSVP and are no longer able to make it, please do take the time to change your RSVP so that someone else may attend, even if it is only an hour before! Thanks!

PASCAL Hackerspace - Hack2Learn: Hackers, Assemble! Pt.2
226 SE Madison St

Hack2Learn: Hackers, Assemble! (Part 2)

Hack2Learn is a bi-monthly CTF (capture the flag) meetup hosted at PASCAL in Portland, OR. PASCAL is an organization of equal opportunity hackers, and we will be introducing you to all the various types of challenges that you might face at any level, and at any time in the fields of information security and technology as a whole, for fun or profit.
Hacker/Tech culture and community can sometimes be a bit (or a byte ^_^) off-putting, especially to those trying to figure out what exactly it is, what we are and what we do. During this meetup at PASCAL, we welcome n00bs with open arms! Never competed in a CTF challenge before? Never even heard of CTFs? Do you have a strong desire to learn & teach alongside peers? GOOD!! You will fit right in at Hack2Learn!

For the next Hack2Learn workshop (yes, we are finally getting this event rolling again!), we will be taking a crack at Assembly-focused CTF (Capture The Flag) challenges: specifically, the PICOCTF2018
Assembly 0-2. MrDe4d will be walking everyone through these challenges, step by step (pun!) so that everyone in attendance will gain theoretical as well as applicable knowledge.
Being able to gain control of system memory is a powerful skill, and is a gateway to understanding memory structure, how data is accessed and processed, how the OS, CPU and programs interface with one another and ultimately how to pwn. A lot of people find Assembly intimidating..and while it may seem daunting and complicated at first glance but, as with any programming language, a grasp of logic as well as dedication to learning are all that are required. In addition to walking you through every step in each challenge, a relatively quick
intro to Assembly will be given, hopefully demystifying it a bit for everyone. MrDe4d will cover basic syntax, instructions and conditions. As we dive deeper into each aspect of the challenges, we will continue to reiterate what has been covered with Assembly- we expect questions to be frequent and recurring. It is absolutely OK to ask the same thing more than once; PASCAL Hack2Learn is a friendly learning environment!
H2L has two major goals: for everyone to capture the flags, and to learn to reverse engineer. This is not a workshop focused on learning a tool, rather it is designed to get attendees thinking logically, critically & to get everyone accustomed to being uncomfortable and not knowing the answer.
In order to participate, attendees will need a computer running either Linux (distro of choice though for this workshop Debian flavors are recommended) or Windows with a VM for Linux, & an install of Cutter 1.7.2 (a Radare2 GUI).

Note: Running Linux is not absolutely necessary when using Cutter. Both Windows and Mac are suitable and Cutter will run fine. Cutter still definitely has a learning curve to it.. fortunately, there is an excellent tutorial/intro on Megabeets.net!

Questions? Email [masked] or get on the PASCAL Discord and interact with other PDX hackers (ask for invite).
