Thanks, Don, for the opportunity to attend my first Black Hat event. I gotta say, it was a little different. Playing “Spot the Fed,” is a lot less fun when it’s so blatantly obvious 😉
There were some great speakers, some great information, and every once in a while you got both of those things in the same talk! One of the more interesting talks I attended was “Physical Security in a Networked World: Video Analytics, Video Surveillance, and You,” presented amazingly by Josh Marpet. Very cool stuff reminding us that the physical security side of things is just a BIT behind the times, and that phys & info sec really need to come together.
I know that vijay2 was also in attendance, but my cell reception was so bad that whenever I tried to call him to meet up…no dice. I did get to run into Chris Gates (aka carnal0wnage) and Rob Fuller (aka mubix. They’re both great guys who are all about teaching others…and calling bull$hit when they see fit.
As I’ve found with most conferences, you tend to get the most benefit from the “Hallway Talks.” I got to spend the better part of two hours hanging out with HD Moore, Egypt, Rob and Chris just soaking in some fu. Good times indeed.
Those Metasploit guys are scary, and it sounds like they’ve got some pretty cool stuff coming down the line.
Again, thank you, Don!
