Using A Rule Engine For Hacking

March 17, 2010

I was interested to stumble upon an issue of the hacker zine Phrack dating back to 2000 which includes a tutorial on building a vulnerability scanning system used for hacking…that includes a rule engine. The article mentions a number of things you would expect: Rete, OPS5, CLIPS, Charles Forgy, Daniel Miranker and even the monkey and bananas problem.
