Presidio Tech Talk Series: Introduction to Network Programmability with Experime

Presented by

Jason Masker - Engineering Director, Office of the CTO with Presidio

About this talk

As an example project, we’ll take a look at securing a Linksys Velop WHW03 consumer wireless router with a Palo Alto PA-220 Next-Generation Firewall in a Virtual Wire configuration. We will review a few recent CVEs published on the Linksys device that exploit an obscure REST API and then make use of that API to update objects on the PA-220 device that can be referenced by policies on the firewall. In the process the concepts of working with Python’s Requests library and json to work directly with REST APIs and working with commercial vendor SDKs or libraries such as Palo Alto’s pandevice library will all be introduced.
