a talk by Jirka Vejražka
A real world example of a port scanner written in pure Python as no existing tool fit the bill.
Quick introduction to port scanning, example of a distributed Python code running on multiple systems across the globe and bypassing common portscan detection/prevention systems.

This talk is suitable for both beginner and advanced Pythonistas.
I've been using Python for IT security purposes for 10+ years. I work as a cyber security expert in a global financial institution.
I'm using (and writing) Python code for a wide range of tasks including offensive operations, low-level network code, distributed task management, knowledge management and internal auditing. Mostly harmless.
