The third day is already over! I’m just back at home so it’s time for a last quick wrap-up before recovering before BruCON which is organized next week! Damien Cauquil started the first batch of talks with a presentation of his new framework: “BTLEJuice: the Bluetooth Smart Man In The Middle
I’m just back from the second day of hack.lu. The day started early with Patrice Auffret about Metabrik! Patrice is a Perl addict and developed lot of CPAN modules like Net::Packet or Net:Frame. That’s why he had the idea to write a new UNIX shell working like a Perl interpreter.
I’m back to Luxembourg for a new edition of hack.lu. In fact, I arrived yesterday afternoon to attend the MISP summit. It was a good opportunity to meet MISP users and to get fresh news about the project. This first official day started later and in a classic way: with
