    I'd give it a few days till the speaker can get back into the swing of normal life. But I do fully expect it to be available.

      Hacking the Hacker: How Firm Is Your Foundation

      For those who missed it, I did a blog for a school assignment. Since I had a LiveScribe pen, I recorded all but the first three talks (I was not yet there).

        Hacking the Hacker: How Firm Is Your Foundation?

        I wrote this up for a school assignment. I hope I do not get in trouble for it, but my peers absolutely agree with 1o57. I thought they were awesome points and I hope the slides will be available soon.

          I would like to hear your source for "malicious codes in their badges." Are you referring to the official Def Con badges? What do you define as "malicious"?

              Certain badges if scanned would "knock out" you badge for a certain time. While there was no virus, the code would prevent your badge from functioning properly when collecting "badges" to get to the 1o57 webpage for your next clue.

              From what I understand, it was to be done in a certain order (I do not know if that is true or not), but I do know from other attendees, they told me who to stay away from! LOL

              I did get nailed by one goon, but other attendees told me to stay away from DT, 1o57, Tuna, and that all goons had coding that would screw up the human badges.

                Thanks Ms. Witt!
                I'm presenting a talk very similar to this and the summary gives me a better understanding of how to keep my presentation organized and flowing correctly (what I was really hoping to attain from the slides pdf).

                  Ahh. This was actually a part of the badge puzzle. Without giving too much away - you had to interact with each of these badge types in order to manually collect all badges by scanning. When you say "malicious code" I think of something harmful, not desired functionality. ;)

                    That is true! Perhaps I either misunderstood their badges or did not understand the puzzle or both. In looking at other forums, there were some that complained that after scanning a goon's badge or DT's, their badge did not work for hours and in some cases days. I interpreted that as a malicious code to prevent humans from advancing (as part of the puzzle).

                    Perhaps I used the wrong word. I will have to think about how to reword my blog so as not to make our organizations look like a bunch of buttheads! LOL Of course, that was not my intention. With any maze or puzzle, there will always be problems to be solved.

                    Thanks for pointing that out. I do not want to mislead my readers (actually, my main reader is my Cybersecurity professor! LOL)

                      Some of the teams that completed the badge challenge put write-ups online already. These could be excellent references for your paper if you like. :)

                        The last line on the winners page alone makes it a worthwhile read.
