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


I’ve been putting off my selections for this years Blackhat/Bsides/DefCon for as long as I could for a number of reasons. The biggest is, that I have absolutely no idea where I should be and what I should be trying to see. As if things weren’t already confusing enough, this years conferences schedules are even more packed than last years. More tracks at Blackhat, and the addition of BSides (which I totally missed last year).

Still, I guess it’s about as late as it can be, and it’s time to put down a few key presentations that I hope to see. I’m going to limit myself to 3 per conference, as after last year, I know that seeing that talks isn’t as easy as it seems 😉

  • Ivan Ristic: State of SSL on the Internet: 2010 Survey, Results and Conclusions Routers
  • Nathan Hamiel, Marcin Wielgoszewski: Constricting the Web: Offensive Python for Web Hackers
  • Barnaby Jack: Jackpotting Automated Teller Machines Redux

  • Dave Kennedy (Rel1K): SET 0.6 release with special PHUKD Key
  • frank^2: Fuck Tools, Do It yourself Jerk
  • Frank Breedijk, Ian Southam: The road to hell is paved with best practices

  • Ed Schaller: Exploiting WebSphere Application Server’s JSP Engine
  • Joseph McCray: You Spent All That Money And You Still Got Owned…
  • Chema Alonso, José Palazón “Palako”: FOCA2 – The FOCA Strikes Back

I’ll be in town a few days before the conference to take part in some training… so if anybody is about and wants to catchup for some drinks, just shoot me a message.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Vegas…
