Well, CanSecWest Core 06 is over and you can get my SAP powerpoint from here. I ended up severely diluting it in the end for a number of reasons and think I could’ve got away with it being more detailed, but it’s up there anyway.
I had a really great time and met some fantastic people, a lot of really nice people, and a few idiots. Talks of note (for my money, anyhow) included Christopher Abad’s Advancements in Anonymous eAnnoyance, Josh Ryder’s Real Time Threat Mitigation Techniques, Crispin Cowan’s Stunt Profiling: Securing a System While You Wait, Dennis Cox’s Insiders View: Network Security Devices, Major Mal’s Magstripe Madness and Fred Arbogast & Sascha Rommelfangen’s excellent Zen and the art of collecting and analyzing Malware.
I really feel I’ve learned something at CanSec, met some really nice people and hope to be back next year. But aside from the techie bits, I’ve learnt that:
- Falling asleep with the French contingent may get you inadvertently labelled as a sex tourist
- If the abject insanity of the organisers I met are anything to go by, Recon 06 is going to be a seriously sweet con. Those guys are a force of nature, not built for human consumption.
- Don’t organise a ski trip then leave the only guy with the cabin key behind. He will take his time in getting there. Eventually.
Anyway, we’re off to Vancouver aquarium today, then flying out to Toronto tomorrow. Apparently we have wireless at the hotel there so I might do a photo dump of things so far.
