How to build your own tools - Part 2

In this bird feeding episode of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Chris Maddalena joins me to discuss how to build your own tools.

Chris (@cmaddalena) gave a talk at DerbyCon this past year on writing Win32 Shellcode. We've talked before on a previous podcast around why building your own tools is important. Chris has also written several tools for his day job and for public consumption. His most recent tool is ODIN, a passive recon tool for penetration testers.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why should someone build their own tool
  • What tool should people build?
  • How to get started building tools
  • What resources are available for building tools
