Cooking Cyber Recipes with CyberChef
June 7, 2022

CyberChef is known as the "The Cyber Swiss Army Knife" and is a simple, intuitive web app for carrying out all manner of "cyber" operations within a web browser. The tool is designed to enable both technical and non-technical analysts to manipulate data in complex ways without dealing with complex tools or algorithms. In this presentation, the presenter will show you what the tool can do and the basics of creating recipes using operations like simple encoding like XOR and Base64, compression and decompression of data, calculating hashes and checksums, and much more.

Factoring large primes and calculating modular inverses is dizzying. What is base64, anyway? This session gently introduces participants to foundations of classic and modern cryptography through a CTF style adventure. This session assumes no prior knowledge of cryptography.
