IndySec 1

Our first official IndySec meeting was conducted last night. A thank you goes out to all that attended.

The meeting lasted around two hours and the topic of discussion ranged from IDS to network printer vulnerabilities (and what a pain it is to get the word out to the right people).

Look for more information on IndySec 2. We are working on speaker topics and a possible location change (downtown Indy).

Links for discussed items.

Asterisk based trixbox enables even the novice user to quickly set up a voice over IP phone system. trixbox can be configured to handle a single phone line for a home user, several lines for a small office, or several T1s for a million minute a month call center.
Open Source HIDS
OSSEC HIDS is an Open Source Host-based Intrusion Detection System. It performs log analysis, integrity checking, rootkit detection, time-based alerting and active response.


  1. Anyone actually played with either of those yet? (OSSEC or Trixbox)

  2. I have played with Trixbox (aka Asterisk@home) Great tools. I would recommend if your looking for some info on it.
