    AtomiCorp HQ

    • What we'll do Come join us at the Atomicorp HQ in Chantilly for another opportunity to network with your peers in the Infosec community. Our presentation will be: Tales from the Crypt...Analyst As a certified Cryptanalyst for the National Security Agency, the speaker was classically trained in manual cryptography, but also pioneered some of the first computer-based cryptographic systems produced by the agency. Topics discussed will include applications of classic cryptography including one-time pads and various cipher methods to machine-based systems (such as the Enigma) and ultimately to modern computer-based algorithms such as public key cryptography. The talk will also explore the speaker?s experiences in the private sector and how the understanding of cryptography helped numerous times in penetration testing, vulnerability assessment, security architecture, and technical advising. Ultimately, this talk will guide you through a history and evolution of cryptography over the past thirty years using the speaker?s own experiences as a backdrop for a discussion of the migration of cryptography from manual to machine and ultimately to digital. Understanding the history and evolution of cryptography is essential for applying modern cryptographic solutions to solve today?s information security problems, particularly in understanding the residual risks, the shifting attack strategies, and the inherent weaknesses in the implementation or fielding of even the best cryptosystems and solutions. • What to bring • Important to know

  • Second cloud security focused meetup

    Walmart Technology

    #will update this description as presenters are chosen Update 2: CloudPassage will now be sending us their Principal Engineering Manager (Apurva Singh). Update 2b: I will be giving a brief talk about Public Cloud lockout. And two very serious lessons learned. Update 1: CloudPassage has been nice enough to send us one of their senior engineers (Paul Bartruff) to present on the topic of cloud security. Greetings, please join us for another meetup of the Reston Area Cloud Security group. I'm hoping we'll get another set of through provoking conversations happening. Presenters are currently TBD. I'm open to suggestions. Vendors are certainly welcome, please try to focus on the technical capabilities and less so on the sales pitch. -Brian

  • Initial Meeting for Reston Area Cloud Security

    Walmart Technology

    East entrance (right side of building when facing the building from Parkridge Blvd) has an elevator to bring you up to the 2nd floor. Someone will be there to bring you up to the 2nd floor since the elevators require a fob to access the floor. Parking is free and should be ample at this time of day. Agenda: 6PM - 7PM = Food and people networking 7PM - 8PM = Presentation and Q/A Lars Harvey from Infoblox. Recently Infoblox acquired IID where Lars was the CEO and co-founder. I've asked him to share with us his thoughts on innovation within security and processing threat intelligence feeds in a modern computing landscape. http://internetidentity.com/ Sebastian Taphanel from Evident. I've asked Sebastian to share with us the more common attack vectors and security issues associated with cloud computing. http://evident.io/ 8PM - 9PM = Agenda/topic proposals for next meetup and networking
