Shmoocon Day Two

We were able to actually make it in on time today after getting 2 hours of sleep! Watched the Active 802.11 Fingerprinting: Gibberish and "Secret Handshakes" to Know Your AP by Sergey Bratus, Cory Cornelius and Daniel Peebles. I found this to be an interesting talk and hope that this research begins to delve into the client realm in the near future.

I also had the pleasure of catching the following talks:

Got Citrix? Hack It! By Shanit Gupta and Advanced Protocol Fuzzing - What We Learned when Bringing Layer2 Logic to "SPIKE Land" by Enno Rey and Daniel Mende. There was also an impromptu talk by muts covering AV circumvention using ollydebug and Windows Vista ASLR circumvention.

I had lunch with Kevin Figueora of K&T International Consulting, Marco Figueroa of MAF Consulting, Inc, Joe McCray of LearnSecurityOnline, Lawrence White of IGS and evil1 at the Chipotle down the street from the hotel. All of us also got together later in the evening and had the most amazing time eating dinner, watching the All-Star 3 point shooting and Slam Dunk contest and having drinks and talking shop. The talks at any convention are good to go to but these are the experiences that stay with you for a lifetime.
