Defcon DC416 Meetup

Attended the Toronto Defcon DC416 meetup last week Wednesday. The presentations were on Stuxnet, data mining of virus/malware signatures, and lockpicking. The lockpicking demonstration was a workshop. Most noteworthy, you could take a try at picking the locks of two small doors. In addition, each door had different grades of locks.

It was a full house!

It was packed! The audience was varied. It consisted of security researchers, computer science students and researchers. The audience also included developers in the industry.

Looking forward to the next few meetups and planning to do a presentation related to the Raspberry Pi and FreedomBox.
