Cracking Passwords with Rainbow Tables by David Lauer
A quick demo of how easy it is to configure a flash drive to crack
passwords. When I say fast I mean fast. No death by PowerPoint here.
Just a quick intro to the concepts and on to the demo!
OSM (Awesome) Botnet Communications by Stephen Mather
What are the theoretical vulnerabilities of versioned geospatial datasets, e.g. for use as bot communications? Multiple methods for providing wiki-style versioned geospatial datasets exist, from Versioned Web Feature Service (WFS) to OpenStreetMap’s (OSM) infrastructure, to proprietary approaches, and emerging standards, e.g. GeoGit. Vulnerabilities to abuse these systems as encoding structures may be subtler than twitter bot net encoding. This talk will briefly introduce OSM, WFS, and GeoGit, and solicit thoughts on ways versioned geospatial wiki style infrastructure may be vulnerable to abuses.
Don’t forget to come early, starting at 6:00 PM, for pizza and pop courtesy of SecureState (http://securestate.com/).
