Next week's meetup I will be giving a wrap-up of Circle City Con, which I am getting the opportunity to contribute to this year as a picture taker guy. I've been told that a few people plan to head to BSides Charolette this weekend and we'll hopefully have a review of that conference as well.
For the main event Jeff and Adam will be doing a demonstration on building your own home lab. Per Jeff:
"For next weeks meetup we will be doing some demos on how to install and configure a home virutal lab for Security testing and research. We will primarily be using VirtualBox as our host virtual environment. It will run on Windows, Mac, and Linux. If people would like to play along, they should download the base Virtualbox installer for their OS as well as the extension pack. The install is fairly straight forward and there are a lot of install guides out on the net.
Once we have our host environment setup, we will walk through an OS install from a base ISO image. We will also show how to move VMs from one machine and import them into another. Finally we'll go through setting up DHCP and configuring the different network types that you can do with VirtualBox. We will have a number of ISO images and some pre-built VMs that can be installed and configured"
Download VirtualBox on a laptop and bring that to the meetup if you'd like to follow along.
Also, we are planning to go to Brew at the Zoo August 7, 2015, as a group. If you would like to commit to going to the event, let me know and bring some money or a checkbook to the meetup to pay for a ticket.
