Because we're damned if we do, and we're damned if we don't!

My picks for the coming conpocalypse

25C7DBB7FDEE98EB339313F2B55B68D5Yeah, yeah… I know. I’ve been slacking on my blog for the past few months (in-fact I think this post has been sitting in my drafts folder for about 2 months). Still, the wheels of life must go on, and the last post (although tongue firmly in cheek), was a bit depressing. So, with as little fan-fare as possible, I thought I’d give you my picks for the up-coming conpocalypse (AKA #HackerSummerCamp, AKA “That thing in Vegas”).

This year I’m volunteering at BSidesLV so won’t have much time at all to visit Blackhat. This might not be such a bad thing though… I think Blackhat and me need some time apart to see if we miss each other. Times move on, and I’m not sure I feel the same way about Blackhat as it feels about me… it’s not me… it’s you. Sorry Blackhat! Maybe I’ll pop over and see if it feels all funky or not! Who knows…

BSidesLV

This years BSidesLV is looking great… and I’m not just saying that because some of my favourite people in the world are running and helping shape it (you know who you are ;). Alongside all the hallway track stuff that’s much talked about, and working a couple of morning shifts as a room host (still not sure what this means… guess a mix of stand-up comedy routine and crowd control!) I’ve got a couple of talks on my radar to attend!

Tuesday 10:00 – 11:00 Opening Keynote — Beyond Good and Evil: Towards Effective Security

Tuesday 16:00 – 17:00 Anatomy of memory scraping, credit card stealing POS malware

Wednesday 17:00 – 18:00 We Hacked the Gibson! Now what?

Wednesday 18:00 – 18:45 Closing Keynote –> It’s A S3kr37
 

On the Wednesday I’ve booked in to play around in the RFID Hacking workshop… maybe I can finally pot this Proxmark3 I’ve had on my desk for about 3 years to some good use ;)

I was really hoping to attend @HackerHuntress‘ Hacking the Hustle Hands-On, Infosec Resume and Career Strategies workshop… however I’m volunteering at that time. So hopefully she’ll still be around to chat to for the remainder of the conference!

If you’re around at BSidesLV, make sure to pop into the “i am the cavalry” area to see what those crazy kids are up to!

DEF CON

By this time of the week everybody is pretty much dead… along with the inevitable mass of people and agoraphobia kicking in! So consider these as my dream picks if I can get into the room ;)

Don’t forget to check out the DEF CON SkyTalks (https://skytalks.info/) as well… these talks aren’t recorded usually, so it’s be there, or be ²!

Friday 12:00 – 12:30 From root to SPECIAL: Pwning IBM Mainframes

Friday 12:30 – 13:00 The $env:PATH less Traveled is Full of Easy Privilege Escalation Vulns

Friday 14:00 – 16:00 DefCon Comedy Jam Part VII, Is This The One With The Whales?

Saturday 10:00 – 11:00 Screw Becoming A Pentester – When I Grow Up I Want To Be A Bug Bounty Hunter!

Saturday 14:00 – 15:00 NinjaTV – Increasing Your Smart TV’s IQ Without Bricking It

Saturday 15:00 – 16:00 Advanced Red Teaming: All Your Badges Are Belong To Us

Sunday 14:00 – 15:00 Android Hacker Protection Level 0

… that’s a lot, and I don’t expect to hit them all! Hallways con and other events will keep me from that. Still, those are my picks for the Summercon marathon!

Hope to see you there… below photos can be used to identify me throughout the conference (depending on the day)
