A guide on how to jailbreak your iPhone, install & backup unauthorized apps, and

Scott Milliken/Erin Shelton - Beer Hacking - Real World Examples
You build your own computers from the bare parts. You'd die before paying
someone else to actually write a basic HTML page for you. So why is it that you
pay up to 10x the
actual cost of making beer for something of lesser quality? This presentation
will cover the
various methods of making your own alcoholic beverages (beer, cider, wine),
equipment required and approximate setup costs for each. Even if your skill in
is limited to the microwave, there is a method of brewing that will work for
experimentation tricks will also be covered so that you can literally hack your
create a new flavor. Samples of various batches made by the presenters will be
during the presentation, assuming they haven't already drunk all of it.

person for folks to try hands on, with a few others referenced in the slide show
ones for example) . I'll cover the advantages and disadvantages of the current
crop on the
market and how they work. Also covered will be possible ways to detect hardware
keyloggers via physical inspection an software.
Daniel Hooper - An Introduction to Software Defined Radio by Cowboy Dan
Software Defined Radio (SDR) is the latest (and possibly last) iteration of
communication technology. Traditional radio technology is very
somewhat inaccessible to the software-hacking community. NO LONGER!
With a fixed piece of hardware such as the Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP),
we can emulate many different kinds of traditional hardware, from CW Morse-code
transmissions, all the way up to digital QAM, HDTV, and beyond.
This presentation will demonstrate how to get set up with GNU Radio and the USRP
hardware. We will perform a few simple tasks such as receiving radio and TV. The
is to get most people in the audience comfortable with the setup process so that
can start experimenting.
SkyDog & Crew - Starting your own Hackerspace (Panel Talk)
Got a bunch of hacker/maker friends and wanna do some projects? Start a
We'll take you on an adventure as we look back over the last year and reflect on
progress we have made getting our hackerspace started, and share some pitfalls
triumphs along the way. Skydog will be joined by Seeblind, the VP of the HC,
Secretary, and Someninjamaster, a devoted, hardworking member.
Scott Moulton - At Least TEN things you didn't know about your hard drive!
This speech comprises at least 10 things that are 2+2=5 type situations people
realize about hard drives. For Example, Data is written in Cylinders on hard
partitions are created on Cylinder Boundaries and that leaves an offset from the
end of one
partition to the next which leaves a gap between partitions that is unusable or
free space at
the end of the disk. In addition to that, the point would be, since the outer
edge of a drive
starting at Track 0 is the fastest location on the drive, and the first
partition is created on a
cylinder boundary at the outside edge, then each and every partition you create
on the disk
has to be at a cylinder boundary into the disk. This means the second partition
is on a
slower part of the drive than the first. So for Mac Users that create a 32 gig
on their drive (actually the 6th/7th partition on the drive) is 32 gigs from the
end of the drive
on a Cylinder boundary and they just installed Windows on the slowest part of
the drive. No
it will not be animated!
Bruce Potter - Three Cool Security Technologies You've Never Heard Of
This talk will introduce you to 3 cool security technologies that you've
probably never been
exposed to. There is still innovation going on, and much of the most useful tech
getting press time. So I'm going to try and rekindle some of that love you've
lost over the
years by giving you the 20 minute low-down on each one. Go get some wine, light
candles, sit back, and enjoy security again. What are the 3 technologies? Well,
have to attend the talk to find out.
Nathan Hamiel /Shawn Moyer - Satan is on my Friends List: Attacking
Social Networking is shaping up to be the perfect storm... An implicit trust of
those in one's
network or social circle, a willingness to share information, little or no
identity, the ability to run arbitrary code (in the case of user-created apps)
review, and a tag soup of client-side user-generated HTML (Hello? MySpace? 1998
It wants its markup vulns back). Yikes.
But enough about pwning the kid from homeroom who copied your calc homework.
the rise of business social networking sites, there are now thousands of public
real names and titles of people working for major banks, the defense and
industry, federal agencies, the US Senate... A target-rich and trusting
custom-tailored, laser-focused attacks.
Our talk will show the results of a series of public experiments aimed at
pointing out the
security and privacy ramifications of everyone's increasingly open, increasingly
online personae and the interesting new attack vectors they've created.
David Hickman/Joshua Restivo - The Government Found Child Porn on
My PC. Now What?
Most users of the Internet are acquainted with peer to peer filesharing and the
pornography available therein and elsewhere on the Internet. Any active
has likely downloaded some form of child pornography unintentionally. Law
has taken the stance that downloading, possession, and/or distribution of child
pornography, even accidental or system compromise, is a crime that will be
the fullest extent of the law. As a result, there are task forces, which scour
looking for the hashes of known child pornography. When found, the local
jurisdiction is notified to investigate. In many cases these local investigators do not have the
skills or experience handle the case correctly.
Unfortunately, once the computers are seized, the accused automatically inherit
stigma of being associated with this type of crime. Only if they have access to
defense forensics do they have a chance of avoiding charges, having existing
dropped or winning their case in court.
This talk will concentrate on what happens in the pre-indictment and
stages of a case from the defense forensics viewpoint.
Darren Kitchen - Lessons Learned in Hacker Media
From e-zine to podcast the world of hacking has been filled with media of all
sorts. In this
