Blackhat Briefings: The Talks I Plan on Attending

The Blackhat Trainings just wrapped up and now everybody here is getting ready for the Blackhat Briefings.

After today's training I picked up my official annual Blackhat swag bag. While picking up my bag there were slews of people wandering around the Caesar's Palace Convention Center for the briefings. The number of people seems to have doubled since the trainings, which is typical.

Last week I had looked online at the list of presentations and had written down what I wanted to attend. This afternoon I reviewed my list against what was shown within the printed brochure. Assuming there's room, my plan is to attend the following presentations at the Blackhat Briefings for the next two days:

Day 1 - August 6

  • 0900-0950 - Keynote: Complexity in Computer Security - Ian Angell
  • 1000-1100 - Nmap: Scanning the Internet - Fyodor Vaskovich
  • 1115-1230 - DNS Goodness - Dan Kaminsky
  • 1345-1500 - Client-Side Security - Petko D. Petkov
  • 1515-1630 - Xploiting Google Gadgets: Gmalware and Beyond - Tom Stracener
  • 1645-1800 - MetaPost Exploitation - Val Smith
Day 2 - August 7
  • 0900-0950 - Keynote: Natural Security - Rod Beckstrom
  • 1000-1100 - Satan is on My Friends List - Shawn Moyer & Nathan Hamiel
  • 1115-1230 - Visual Forensic Analysis and Reverse Engineering - Greg Conti & Erik Dean
  • 1345-1500 - Hacking and Injecting Federal Trojans - Lukas Grunwald
  • 1515-1630 - The Internet is Broken - Nathan McFeters, Rob Carter & John Heasman
  • 1645-1800 - Pushing the Camel Through the Eye of a Needle - Haroon Meer & Marco Slaviero
