I’m writing this quick wrap-up in Vienna, Austria where I attended my first DeepSec conference. This event was already on my schedule for a while but I never had a chance to come. This year, I submitted a training and I was accepted! Good opportunity to visit the beautiful city
The use of a wall of sheep (or WoS) is nice to raise the security awareness of your audience. A WoS is a tool used to demonstrate what can happen when users connect to a wild network without a minimum level of security. The non-encrypted traffic is analyzed and evidence of bad behaviour is displayed publicly
Here we go with the last wrap-up of the 2018 edition! The first presentation was about worms: “Worms that turn: nematodes and neotodes” by Matt Wixey. The first slide contained the mention: “for educational purposes only”. What could we expect? The idea of the research performed by Matt was interesting.
The second day started early with an eye-opener talk: “IPC – the broken dream of inherent security” by Thanh Bui. IPC or “Inter-Process Communications” are everywhere.

Wow, 10 years already! In a few weeks, this is the 10th edition of BruCON or the “0x0A edition“. If you know me or follow me, you probably know that I’m part of this wonderful experience since the first edition. I’m also sponsoring the conference through my company with a
During this summer, I went to SANSFire, Defcon and BSidesLV. Usually, the month of September is lighter without big events for me. This is to prepare for the next wave of conferences ahead! Of course, BruCON will be held on the first week of October but, especially, Hack.lu which remains one of my favourite
The day three started quietly (let’s call this fact the post-social event effect) with a set of presentations around Blue Team activities. Alexandre Dulaunoy from CIRCL presented “Fail frequently to avoid disaster” or how to organically build an open threat intelligence sharing standard to keep the intelligence community free and sane!
When you have a look at the schedule of infosec conferences, the number of events is already very high. There is one at least every week around the world. So, when a new one is born and is nice, it must be mentioned. “Pass-The-Salt” (SALT means “Security And Libre Talks“)
And here we go with the wrap-up of the 3rd day of the SSTIC 2018 “Immodium” edition. Indeed, yesterday, a lot of people suffered from digestive problems (~40% of the 800 attendees were affected!). This will for sure remains a key story for this edition. Anyway, it was a good
