DEF CON 21 Video – Defense by numbers: Making problems for script kiddies

For those that didn’t manage to wake up for the crack of dawn DEF CON Sundays slot, the fine folks over at DC have released the videos of most (if not all) presentations –> https://www.youtube.com/user/DEFCONConference/

My presentation, for those interested, can be found below.

#DEFCON Defense by numbers: Making Problems for Script Kiddies and Scanner Monkeys

dc-21-logo-smWell, I finally popped my DEF CON cherry and did a presentation at the largest hacker conference in the world… and no I’m not talking about RSA!

Despite my fears of freezing on stage and beginning to drool like a moron, I think the presentation went well. Excluding of course the point where Powerpoint decided it would die in a fire rather than show my next slide. Still, in typical DEF CON fashion there were goons on hand to deliver shots _just_ at the right time to cover the problem. This will forever be known to me now as JITAD (Just In Time Alcohol Delivery).

Hopefully the attendees took something from the presentation that they can use to make their systems a little more secure, or at least the lives of script kiddies a little harder (this is a dream for us right?).

The slides for the presentation are now online (see below), and the video will be uploaded as soon as DEF CON make the release possible.

As always, feedback on the talk, the idea and anything else is gratefully received…
