Winning (and Quitting) the Privacy Game: What it REALLY takes to have True Privacy in the 21st Century; or How I learned to give in and embrace EXIF tags - Tim MalcomVetter Derbycon 2017 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Winning (and Quitting) the Privacy Game: What it REALLY takes to have True Privacy in the 21st Century; or How I learned to give in and embrace EXIF tags
Tim MalcomVetter
Derbycon 2017

The privacy vs. technology debate rages on. So many people say they want “total privacy,” but so few people are *actually* willing to put in the effort it takes to achieve it. They expect total privacy while still embracing modernity. I took the challenge and forced my wife and kids to come along, too, managing to lawfully remove all associations between my identity and my actual physical address, save for two obscure databases"still, that was enough to stifle a whole slew of invited hackers and law enforcement officers from winning a table stakes game: learning the physical address where we put our heads on our pillows every night for the past few years, despite the fact that we still used technology, social media, and paid electric bills. The “game” is over now and we’ve called it quits. We could continue, but it’s incredibly difficult and taxing. Turns out, living life with total privacy between physical and digital requires tons of planning, discipline, money, time, and sacrifice, but it was a fun exercise and learning experience. Come to this talk to live the private life vicariously through me. Learn how we did it, how we nearly blew it (several times), and just how amazingly difficult it really is, especially if you have friends, extended family, or … kids! Become jaded on the future of privacy or leave motivated to uproot your loved ones to try it out for yourselves.
