Recon 2011 (a late retrospective)

November 28, 2011 by

In July 2011, Beans gave a talk at ReCon in Montreal, CA entitled “Hardware Hacking for Software People“. This year ReCon broke away from its more humble conference venue roots, took corporate sponsorship, and upgraded the venue to a MUCH nicer hotel. (After last year’s debacles, I think Hugo and Dave decided it was just […]

INFILTRATE 2011

Beans recently (okay, it was MONTHS ago and I had this post pending in review since then) attended the Immunity INFILTRATE Conference in South Beach Miami, as well as the MASTER CLASS HACKING TRAINING.  Unfortunately this Stephen rarely (if ever) takes photos of anything, so you won’t see pictures of Internet superstar hackers here. Instead […]

Earlier this summer Beans attended the weeklong SMT Solver Summer school held at MIT campus in Boston, Mass. Over the last few years having seen some of the presentations by Pablo Sole on DEPLIB, blogposts by Sean Heelan, and having messed around a little bit with the REIL in BinNavi we were really curious to get a […]

In 2011, I (Stephen A. Ridley) don’t plan on attending too many conferences that require far away travel for many reasons. 1) My work isn’t as interesting anymore ;-( and 2) I can’t travel as easily with Sammiches. With Boston being in the northeast (close to us) we decided we’d try SourceBoston out for the […]

Last week we here at Beans attended the first annual BlackHat Abu Dhabi to speak on software sandboxing technologies (Google Chrome) and relevant security issues. (This was the same talk from EuSecWest and ReCon.) This was the first time I (Stephen A. Ridley) had been outside of the airport in the Middle East. (The closest […]

ReCon 2010

September 16, 2010 by

For years, I have always wanted to attend ReCon. Since about 2005 or so, I’ve read all the slides and papers that came out of ReCon. It is one of the few conferences I really ever cared to follow. This year, the first time I was able to attend, I was actually invited to speak […]

Blackhat Vegas 2010 (PhotoJournal)

September 16, 2010 by

At the very last minute (partly due to some conversations on Twitter). Beans was invited to BlackHat Vegas 2010 to speak as an alternate. Having not officially applied to the CFP, it was a huge honor to be considered in this way. (Having already given the talk at Recon 2010 and Syscan helped, along with the […]
