  • Black Hat membership and Bruce Schneier readership teaming for the Challenge

    The Whitenoise Challenge That Black Hat Would Not Take is just 5 days away.

    There’s no “I” in “team”

    Please read the contest rules carefully. When the lawyers do the “niceties”
    they put stuff in to carve out parameters.

    This contest is open to anyone, but teams are allowed as well. There just needs to be one lead person etc.

    Obviously given the name of the challenge we encourage all Black Hat members to band together and help one another out.

    This might given an indication into the chops of those group members.

    Likewise, we recommend that a team be made to help Bruce Schneier out comprised of the subscribers and sycophants of his security blog. If one was marketing a blog, or disinformation, persons would want to know things like average age, education, experience etc. of readership. They would try to discern whether readership was comprised of gamers or hard core security experts.

    Combining into teams will give more likelihood of aggregating the huge amount of equipment, resources, and processing time that might be required to break a Whitenoise key.

    Good luck

    Over the next couple of days we will examine official DEFCON challenge page where the number of downloaded contest files, number of submitted break claims, and the amount of time left in the contest and the amount of time to break snake oil is tracked for the Whitenoise Challenge That Black Hat Would Not Take. Time will officially tracked with the Bruce Schneier Challenge Clock.
