The Red Team uncovers and identifies offensive security risks. They find malicious attacks and security vulnerabilities in the system before others find them. Red teams are offensive cyber security professionals (Hackers) who are experts in attacking systems and breaking into network and system defenses. Blue teams are defensive cybersecurity professionals responsible for maintaining internal network defenses against all outside or inside cyber attacks and threats.Red teams often consist of independent ethical hackers who evaluate system security in an objective manner.
Red teams simulate attacks against blue teams to test the effectiveness of the network’s security. These red and blue team exercises provide a holistic security solution ensuring strong defenses while keeping in view evolving cyberthreats.
They ‘re security experts first, but also an enthusiastic group of thinkers and innovators with a global outlook. To promote cybersecurity culture and training Tier3 provides enthusiastic individuals with resources and penetration testing tools to enhance their experience.
How Does A Red Team Work?
Red teams spend more time planning an attack then they do performing attacks. In fact, red teams deploy a number of methods to gain access to a network.Social engineering attacks, for example, rely on reconnaissance and research to deliver targeted spear phishing campaigns. Likewise, prior to performing a penetration test, packet sniffers and protocol analyzers are used to scan the network and gather as much information about the system as possible.
Typical information gathered during Reconnaissance phase includes:
- Uncovering operating systems in use (Windows, macOS, or Linux).
- Identifying the make and model of networking equipment (servers, firewalls, switches, routers, access points, computers, etc.).
- Traversing the networks.
- Learning what ports are open/closed on a firewall to allow/block specific traffic.
- Creating a map of the network to determine what hosts are running what services along with where traffic is being sent.
Once the red team has a more complete idea of the system they develop a plan of action designed to target vulnerabilities specific to the information they gathered above.
Redteam Modus Operandi :
- Penetration testing, also known as ethical hacking, is where the tester tries to gain access to a system, often using software tools. For example, ‘John the Ripper’ is a password-cracking program. It can detect what type of encryption is used, and try to bypass it.
- Social engineering is where the Red Team attempts to persuade or trick members of staff into disclosing their credentials or allowing access to a restricted area.
- Phishing entails sending apparently-authentic emails that entice staff members to take certain actions, such as logging into the hacker’s website and entering credentials.
- Intercepting communication software tools such as packet sniffers and protocol analyzers can be used to map a network, or read messages sent in clear text. The purpose of these tools is to gain information on the system. For example, if an attacker knows a server is running on a Microsoft operating system then they would focus their attacks to exploit Microsoft vulnerabilities.
Red Team Toolkit in Pakistan
Red Team Toolkit is an offensive security platform and penetration testing tooling suite used and recommended by Tier3 penetration testers. These best red team tools can be used by professionals pentesters or those who want to get more experience through cybersecurity training. It optimizes the red teaming operations and penetration tests. This collection of offensive security softwares or red team toolkit enables Penetration Testers and professional hackers in Pakistan to perform advanced network operations, collaborate on target exploitation, and better simulate sophisticated adversaries.
