September DC414 Meeting Recap

Return of meeting recaps!

Klaviel started us off by showing us how to view alternate data streams in files. Demo was with Notepad and a few command prompt commands.

Klaviel then showed a brief video on hotel room lock hacking, on the Onity locks. The video he showed off can be found here

Korgo announced an upcoming Milwaukee conference that he is leading: Cyphercon. Cyphercon will be held on March 12th, and the venue that has already been reserved is the Safe House in downtown Milwaukee. The themes involved are Ciphers, Puzzles, Lock Picking, Safe Cracking, Covert Operations, Cryptography and Privacy. Klaviel will be doing lock demos at this conference, and Belouve will be creating the puzzles and badge challenge for the conference.
Attendance is limited to 100 guests, and the ticket prices are $100.
The website for Cyphercon is located here: CYPHERCON.COM You may buy tickets now using Bitcoin ($95) or Credit Card ($100).

Belouve did a DEFCON 23 recap, with input from other members that attended. An overview of the slides/websites he used can be found here: DEFCON 23 Recap
There is also the website for the DEFCON 23 Badge walkthrough at PotatoHat Security

Klaviel also showcased video from the DEFCON 23 shoot.

There was also a demo (I forget the guy’s handle) on mounting and decrypting an encrypted hard drive within Linux. The simplicity of commands would be more useful than using an array of tools to mount an encrypted hard drive (say, migrating from Windows to Linux).

Those were all the demos that I can recall. I will take some actual notes next time, instead of relying only on memory. A list of upcoming events will be in a separate post.

The meeting then broke up at about 11pm. Nerf, quadcopters, and other shenanigans were kept until after 11pm.
