    On Friday, messages posted to Pastebin and Tumblr allege the recently leaked NSA files came from a contractor working a red team engagement for RedSeal, a company that offers a security analytics platform that can assess a given network's resiliency to attack. In addition, the hackers claim the intention was to disclose the tools this year during DEF CON.

    Salted Hash reached out to the press team at DEF CON, as well as RedSeal.

    In a statement, RedSeal would only confirm they are an In-Q-Tel portfolio company. The company also denied any knowledge of red team assessments against their products by In-Q-Tel or contractors working with In-Q-Tel. The press department at DEF CON hadn't responded to questions by the time this article went to print.
