Beneath the Depths of the Windows Event Log
by: Charles Yost

The Windows Event Log is the cornerstone for many Blue Teams and a bane for many Red Teams when dealing with InfoSec on Windows hosts. However, there are many differences between it and the logging in place on Unix/Linux and macOS Systems. Where did it come from? How does it work? Why is it so complex? In this talk I will guide you through the depths beneath the Windows Event Log in an effort to better understand it. We will dive into the Windows API and Infrastructure surrounding the Windows Event Log and discover the whys and wherefores that dictate it’s usage. From the Windows Registry to some C structs we will pull back the cover on just what it is, and how we can better understand it in an Information Security context.
