Event description


Course Description:

This class leverages an interactive environment to introduce students to YARA, the swiss army knife of pattern matching. Students begin with an introduction to YARA and then quickly move to dissecting and classifying files. They will construct rules for pattern matching and learn strategies to be more efficient in construction. Students will also learn how to scale rule collections and leverage rule organization to handle common and uncommon tasks to aid and speed up classification. When a student departs this class they will have practical understanding, confidence, and experience to craft YARA rules for any file.

Through our interactive labs you will learn:

  • File classification
  • YARA rule creation
  • Fuzzy logic
  • Rule organization and strategy
