Blackhat Amsterdam 2012 : ToolsTube with Didier Stevens on PDF Tools

Didier has released several free open source tools to help with the analysis of (malicious) PDF files. These tools are included in popular Linux distros like BackTrack and REMnux. One of these tools, pdfid, is also running on the number one virus scanning site VirusTotal.

Didier has also produced tutorials for these tools on YouTube.

But Didier has released many other offensive, defensive and forensic tools. Feel free to ask questions about these tools too.

Currently Didier is working on Cisco IOS forensic tools.
