More study help and downloading flash streaming podcast as mp3s

So I am really bad at trying to stop looking for more ways to getting free training information and start studying more… so I will share what I’ve found.

I thinks these overview should not be your primary study material, but it is good to listen to refresh what you read or to get your feet wet on each one of the domains.

First more free video training.

Based on Shon Harris’s CISSP All-in-One book is a FREE 10 video overview for each domain by SearchSecurity.

Just scroll to the bottom and click on the video.  You will need to provide a valid email address. Oh and also videos 6-10 are in the links in the comment of each video page.

 

Second, as I mentioned in my previous post, based on Eric Conrad’s CISSP study guide there is a 10 audio podcast.

http://booksite.syngress.com/companion/conrad/podcasts.php

So the problem with Eric Conrad’s CISSP audio podcast is that the audio files are streamed in a flash application and my iphone doesn’t support flash and most of your web plugins such as FVD downloader in Chrome extension doesn’t detect the audio files, so I can’t download it that way.  So since this is a security / hacking blog the following is a tip.

tl; dr.  USE rtmpdump

So how I found this solution is as follows:

1. In Chrome, I used inspect element and resources tab. Look under

podcast.php / XHR / mp3_playlistXML.xml

I found this

http://booksite.syngress.com/companion/conrad/mp3_playlistXML.xml

So each line in the xml fine shows the location of each file and it is streamed by RTMP

For example first podcast,

<videoname flvurl="rtmp://media.us.elsevierhealth.com/conrad_cissp_study_guide_mp3s/mp3:domain_01"desc="Podcast 1 - Domain 1"/>

2. So I found RTMPDump.  RTMP = Real Time Messaging Protocol

and in short

 rtmpdump -r "rtmp://media.us.elsevierhealth.com/conrad_cissp_study_guide_mp3s/mp3:domain_01" -o domain01.mp3

And repeat for all the other domains and mp3s.  There you go.  I hope it helps.
