Video – The Java Virtual Machine As Shellcode

In this screencast we’re going to look at some features we are working on for the next version of netifera.

The two main things we’re going to demonstrate are geographical visualization and the netifera probe which is a deployable software agent that makes it possible to run all netifera platform tools remotely as easily as running them locally.

We’re going to install the probe on the webserver, and we’ll deploy it like shellcode by injecting it directly into memory over the network, using an exploit.

    is the communications channel between the probe and netifera encrypted or encoded?

    It will be encrypted when we release it.

    I can testify that Netifera is totally awesome. Try it and see.

    This title fails to adequately capture the awesomeness that is Netifera. Yes, it does involve a Java VM written in shellcode. But it wasn’t even written *for* Netifera, it’s just someone else’s project they are using. Watch this video. You will soon understand that Netifera is… impressive.

    This is a screencast which demonstrates some of the features and capabilities of the application my startup is working on. Our software is an open-source network tool framework with an emphasis on security assessment. It’s also a distributed platform which is the main feature we are showing off in the video. After installing a smallself-contained Java VM based software agent (which we call a ‘probe’) any tool created with the framework can be transparently deployed and launched remotely and runs autonomously without needing to be connected to the UI.
