Who’s afraid of PowerShell security?

Hello together,

many people are afraid of using Powershell remoting, because they think it is very unsafe.

Just take a moment and read this:

The improvements in WMF 5.0 (or WMF 4.0 with KB3000850) make PowerShell the worst tool of choice for a hacker when you enable script block logging and system-wide transcription. Hackers will leave fingerprints everywhere, unlike popular CMD utilities. For this reason, PowerShell should be the only tool you allow for remote administration. These features allow you to answer the classic questions who, what, when, where, and how for activities on your servers.

PowerShell ♥ the Blue Team

Whitepaper by Lee Holmes “Scripting Security and Protection Advances in Windows 10” (PowerShell 5).

Give this to your InfoSec people, your manager, and your grandmother. Then implement it.

PSConfEU – Interviews – Material

Hi all,

some time passed since my last update, but now i am arriving with a whole bunch of demo scripts for everyone.

I have been at the PSConfEU and had two speaking slots there:

  • PS-Repo Server
  • Deep Dive XAML-GUIs in PS

My good friend Sebstian Klenk, Technical Evangelist Microsoft, did two interviews in german with me and summed everything up in his blog.

There you can get also the material of my sessions and more – i recommend the demo Scripts of the GUI Session-  but keep in mind that not all of the examples were written by me but i personally did not want to keep them out.
