Focus on Your Malware, Not Infrastructure
Malware analysis is one of the most exciting yet daunting tasks in the security research world. A typical researcher spends countless hours and sometimes days to dissect malware and exploits. To keep up the pace (and sanity) many automation tools have been built to help with different kind of tasks. Usage of such tools brings a massive problem of maintaining working and secure infrastructure. An infrastructure often operated in very hostile environments. This problem causes researchers to spend too much of their time and resources on the infrastructure instead of spending it on their target goal. In this talk, we will learn how every malware analyst can start rapidly using serverless technology to make their life easier. We will dive into a serverless open source project called MalScanBot. Learn how it was built and how it can be used as a template for many other interesting project. Because as a researcher you should always Focus on your malware, Not Infrastructure.
