Where to get the podcast
Dave Lewis (a.k.a. gattaca) makes us Sweat with another track from his Mescaline project. Good stuff !
Benny is back and together we are going through a few organizational points of interest. Our guest today is Mr. Eric Filiol, another one of our presenters (http://www.brucon.org/index.php/Presentations#How_to_prepare.2C_coordinate_and_conduct_a_cyber_attack). Eric is a French cryptanalyst and information security specialist with some interesting points on cryptology and the state of information security.
Sah Ril gets us hyper once again, this time with the great song F**k Me Famous from his album Wet.Plug.Trip.
Benny is recovering from a (regular) flu attack and thus I'm joined by Didier Stevens, pdf wizard extraordinaire and co-conspirator of The Hex Factor. He explains the idea behind the game that will keep us audience captivated during the conference, how they started and what you can expect from it. Download the episode and get informed !
Getting our groove on with a good beat, this time contributed by Dave Lewis (@gattaca on twitter) of http://www.liquidmatrix.org . Much to our amazement this dude laces the tracks with heavy basses that grab you by the throat in this track named 'Crisis' (the title seems appropriate to an infosec podcast) by his music project Mescaline.
On with the show.
We got into a good discussion about information security, cyberwarfare and privacy with Jayson E. Street. Jayson will be speaking at the Brucon conference in September (don't tell me you have yet to book your ticket, right?) and was awarded the prize for the longest title. Apart from being an extremely likeable guy, he's very knowledgeable on the subject and he's a published author. If we are not misinformed, his book "Dissecting the hack" (Syngress '09) was launched in Vegas last week.
We're ready to kick it off with kickass music contributed to us by an independent artist (and friend) from NY : Sah Ril. The new shoes song (I go bang) is featured on his album Wet.Plug.Trip which you can grab from iTunes and Amazon. You can find more info (and links to free music from this talented dude) on his website at www.sahril.org. We will feature more of his tracks in future episodes.
On with the show.
In this first episode we take the liberty to introduce Brucon 09, the first hacker/infosec conference in Belgium and provide you some essential tidbits of information that will prove valuable if you so choose to attend, participate or even contribute. All info about the conference can be found on http://www.brucon.org. if you want to stay up-to-date while the excitement is growing, you can follow @brucon on twitter or subscribe to the blog at http://blog.brucon.org.
The meat of the episode however is a interview with hackster princess extraordinaire "Astera" Schneeweisz. This amazing fraulein from Vienna will be speaking at Brucon on the subject of hackerspaces. Hackerspaces have, in recent years, grown like mushrooms in recent years and Astera has personal first-row experience in organizing and building them. In the interview we also learned about Plumbercon (http://www.plumbercon.org) and all the other great and exciting ideas she's working on. Learn to know this inspiring young lady, only on the Brucon podcast !
