Topic: Pentesting ChatOps

ChatOps, a concept originating from Github, is chatroom-driven DevOps
for distributed teams, using chatbots (like Hubot) to execute custom
scripts and plugins.
She has applied the concept of ChatOps to the penetration testing
workflow, and found that it fits outstandingly – for everything from
routine scanning to spearphishing to pentest gamification.
This talk discusses the tools that her company use (RocketChat, Hubot, Gitlab,
pentesting tools), and provides battle stories of using Pentesting
ChatOps in practice.
