Wrap-Ups Storm Ahead!

I can’t remember why I started to write conference wrap-ups but it started in 2009 when I attended my first Hack.lu! I had a quick look at my blog archives and, until today, I wrote 184 wrap-ups!  The initial idea was probably to bring some material to colleagues who did not have the chance to attend the conference in Luxembourg. Quickly I got some ver

BruCON Network 0x09 Wrap-Up

BruCON 0x09 is over! It’s time to have a look at the data captured during the last Thursday and Friday. As the previous years, the setup was almost the same: An Internet pipe with a bunch of access-points, everything interconnected through a pfSense firewall. The guest network (dedicated to attendees) traffic is captured and processed by a SecurityOnio

Hack.lu 2017 Wrap-Up Day 2

As said yesterday, the second day started very (too?) early… The winner of the first slot was Aaron Zauner who talked about pseudo-random numbers generators. The complete title of the talk was “Because ‘User Random’ isn’t everything: a deep dive into CSPRGNs in Operating Systems & Programming Languages”. He started with an overview of random numbers gene

Hack.lu 2017 Wrap-Up Day 3

Hack.lu is already over and I’m currently waiting for my connecting flight in Munich, that’s the perfect opportunity to write my wrap-up. This one is shorter because I had to leave early to catch my flight to Hacktivity and I missed some talks scheduled in the afternoon. Thank Lufthansa for rebooking my flight so early in the afternoon… Any

Harron is a renowned speaker and the title of his keynote was “Time to play ‘D’”. The intro was simple: Nothing new, no 0-day, he decided to start his keynote based on his previous talk

[The post Black Hat Europe 2015 Wrap-Up has been first published on /dev/random] Here is my quick wrap-up of Black Hat Europe 2015 which just terminated today.

Hack in Paris Challenge Wrap-Up

A few days ago, I proposed a challenge to solve. The first ten people, who solved it, won a free ticket to attend the security conference Hack in Paris in June. Thanks to all the players! If all tickets were assigned after a few days, some people did not solve the challenge and asked me to publish a small wrap-up with the solution. The challenge was based on
