Beyond Scanning: Advancements in Identifying the Global Threat Landscape

At the 2022 Converge Security Conference, we unveiled an internal initiative for the rapid identification and cataloging of internet-accessible services. Our objective was to deepen our understanding of the global threat landscape by conducting highly distributed port scans across the entire addressable IPv4 space.

We explored the architecture, tooling, and methodology necessary to leverage thousands of nodes for reliably scanning 3.7 billion addresses. Initial results were undoubtedly successful, as we achieved a repeatable task that could be completed within 90 minutes at an approximate cost of $100.

This year, we're back with more, and we're thrilled to present the advancements we've made since our last session. Join us as we share updates on the initiative and delve into additional statistics, demonstrating the impact of our research on proactive threat detection, network security, and vulnerability management.
