Security Conference “ShmooCon 2011” January 28-30th

Check out the annual hacker convention ShmooCon 2011, this January 28th through 30th.

ShmooCon is an annual east coast hacker convention hell-bent on offering three days of an interesting atmosphere for demonstrating technology exploitation, inventive software and hardware solutions, and open discussions of critical infosec issues.  The first day is a single track of speed talks called One Track Mind.  The next two days bring three tracks:  Build It, Break It and Bring It On.

Scheduled events include:

  • Barcodes Shmarcodes
  • Ghost in the Shellcode
  • Lockpick Village
  • ShmooCon Labs
  • Firetalks 

Adrian Crenshaw (aka Irongeek) mentioned in a tweet today that he might have the ShmooCon Firetalks available live on his site.

FireTalks are 15-minute presentations meant to be an alternative to longer traditional session formats. Similar to 5-minute lightening talks the purpose is to skip the background material and make a point by explaining it as quick as possible. The FireTalks will take place Friday and Saturday nights starting at 8:00 PM. Come enjoy both up in coming infosec leaders as well as seasoned speakers challenge the 15-minute format in an relaxed alternative conference environment.

And just in case you weren’t able to get a ticket (Come on they were available for 5 minutes!), the track streams will be available at Ustream.

Check it out!
