First Spring meetup of 2019!

Thanks to this month's sponsors: Digital Ocean and GitHub.

Bring your ideas and great conversation we will provide the food and beverages.

Carson Owlett will be presenting "Hiding in Plain Sight".
As long as people have been sending messages, they have been finding ways to hide them. With the era of the computer, older methods such as invisible ink and knitting may have been phased out but modern equivalents have sprung up in their place. Join 5C4R48 in a journey through the methods employed by spies in the old days and techniques employed by hackers in the modern world.

Jeremy Blackthorne will be talking about "Reverse Engineering with NSA's Ghidra".
Ghidra is the NSA's formerly classified software reverse engineering tool. Released to the public at the RSA Conference in March 2019 by NSA Senior Rob Joyce, it is quickly gaining traction in the wider security community. In this talk, we give a brief overview of Ghidra, demonstrate several of its unique features, and show applications to malware analysis and vulnerability research. Ghidra is free, open source, and currently available on GitHub: It's also written in Java so it will run on most systems. Feel free to download before-hand and follow along during the presentation.

Please send us your ideas for future month talks, whether you want to present or just simply interested in hearing about certain topics.
