Despite how robust computer security may be, there remains a serious threat within any system: the people using it. Social engineering is an enormously powerful technique which exploits human weaknesses such as greed, fear and even attributes we consider positive such as sympathy and generosity, in order to compromise security systems and give an attacker access to sensitive information. In this Play by Play, Troy and Lars discuss various techniques that adversaries use to coerce their targets into performing actions that they wouldnâ€™t normally do. These range from very simple techniques that even your kids use, to sophisticated human manipulation practices designed to compromise large scale systems.
