Introduction to the RangeForce Training Platform

Reverse Engineering II

In this module, you are going to learn how to recover a password from a program by reverse engineering it with Ghidra. Ghidra is a software reverse engineering framework created by the National Security Agency (NSA) of the USA. It includes a variety of tools that helps users analyze compiled code on a variety of platforms including Windows, macOS, and Linux. Its capabilities include disassembly, assembly, de-compilation, and many others.

Splunk Basics

Splunk is a tool that captures, indexes, and correlates real-time data which can then be used to generate graphs, reports, alerts, dashboards, and visualizations. In this module, you will learn how to use a Splunk instance which is fed by web transaction, database activity, and system security logs. You will also get familiar with this data as well as the search capabilities that Splunk has to offer.

Yara Rule Generation

Malware detection is often done through the identification of certain features of known malicious files. YARA is a tool that identifies malware by creating descriptions that look for certain characteristics. In this module, you will learn how to use yarGen to create new custom Yara rules to check for malware which shares features with previous samples of malware you have received.
