- 3D Digital Art and Animation Workshop
PRESENTER: WILLIAM HARRISON 3D Digital art and computer graphics are used for creating animated films, visual effects, 3D printing, interactive 3D applications, and video games. Everything from Toy Story The Movie to Apple, the computer company heavily utilize 3D digital art. The class will start with conveying the value of modeling and animation by showing the professional, technical, and artistic opportunities for someone who understands 3D modeling and animation. During the class students will learn how to use free software to create 3D digital Art and animation. The course will enable students to begin to create and animate from their imagination. The topics in the course will be: Learning the Software interface Creating geometric objects like cubes and cylinders Moving objects in 3 dimensions Creating new shapes from existing objects Materials and colors Virtual Camera control Creating print and video worthy scenes and animations GOAL: By the end of the course, students will be capable of doing a simple model and animation of their own. THINGS TO BRING: Equipment needs for the course are just a computer and a 3 button (two buttons with a mouse wheel) mouse. The software needed is Blender 3D, which is completely free. Blender runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux, so as long as you have a full operating system, it should work fine. SKILL LEVEL: BASIC
- INFOSEC NIGHT: Intro to Firmware Exploitation
This presentation will cover some basic ideas to exploit firmware. We will be discussing basics of firmware, acquiring firmware, extraction, analysis, and (if time allows) backdooring firmware. Hands-on examples for extraction and analysis will be conducted. Basic concepts, such as Linux file structure and tools, will be covered. GOAL: Extract and analyze firmware for exploitation/bug hunting. THINGS TO BRING: Note taking material. If wanting to follow along with the exercise, bring a laptop with your favorite version of Linux installed. Download the following tools ahead of time - Binwalk (https://github.com/ReFirmLabs/binwalk), Firmware Mod Kit (https://github.com/rampageX/firmware-mod-kit/wiki), Firmware Analysis Toolkit (https://github.com/attify/firmware-analysis-toolkit), Firmwalker (https://github.com/craigz28/firmwalker), and qemu (from your distro repository) SKILL LEVEL: Everyone PRESENTER: Nyte
- Open House
Open House Night - Come check out what UAS is all about. Keyholders and members will be available to answer questions, help with projects, and give tours. If you've never been to UAS before, this is a great time to check us out. We host a weekly open house to help introduce new people to the space and some of the various interests and participants. Often, this event is combined with TOOOL / Lockpicking night. Come on by, and check out the space and some of the fun projects we are working on.
- Stanford Crypto 1 Study Group
SUMMARY: Do you like solving ciphers but want to grow beyond rot13 puzzles? Are you interested in steamy romances involving Alice, Bob, and Eve? Do you want to learn how to crack one time pads? Do you want to know how you're using SSL wrong? Or maybe you're doing SSL right, but you keep hearing about this BEAST attack and want to understand it on a cryptologist's level? Did you ever want to take the Stanford Online Crypto Course but feared the math? Then the Stanford Crypto 1 Study Group is the event of the year for you! Together we will conquer the math and mystery of Crypto. Break down nerdy concepts into everyday concepts. The Stanford Crypto 1 course is an online course provided by Coursera. The course begins with a detailed discussion of how two parties who have a shared secret key can communicate securely when a powerful adversary eavesdrops and tampers with traffic. The second half of the course discusses public-key techniques that let two parties generate a shared secret key. Throughout the course participants will be exposed to many exciting open problems in the field and work on fun programming projects. https://www.coursera.org/learn/crypto The study sessions is for people to point out areas of the material that they didnt understand, and for everyone else to come up with the best way to explain it. PLEASE DO NOT BE AFRAID TO SAY YOU DON'T KNOW SOMETHING. This is crypto, we know its difficult, that's why we find it alluring. Together we'll be able to help each other. No judging, No shame. #ELI5 Python is language of choice, but we'll try to accommodate others as best as possible TL;DR: If you take this class, you will be able to complete CTF Crypto challenges! GOAL: Complete the Stanford Crypto Course 1 like a boss THINGS TO BRING: Your development environment of choice, and something to take notes in SKILL LEVEL: Algebra is nice, Calculus is great, but not mandatory. Functional programming is highly suggested. PRESENTER: VirusFriendly
- Project Night
Monday evenings, we will be open for Project Night - a night to work on, collaborate on, or brainstorm on whatever projects you're currently working on or interested in. Don't have a project? Come see what others are working on and get involved or get ideas. If you have an concept for a group project, bring your ideas and seek out others to join you. Project Night is a great opportunity to make progress on your projects as a regularly scheduled event. Anyone is welcome to work on projects any time the space is open, but a dedicated night--just for this--is really fantastic. Teach, Learn, Build.

- Lockpicking 101 - Toool
Purpose Currently our meetup exists to support a hands on approach for beginners who want to learn about pin and tumbler lock-picking. Veteran pickers who want to discuss more advanced topics like security pins, different locking mechanisms, key impressioning, decoding, and safe manipulation are all welcome, but there is an Advanced lockpicking night as well. Format Typically we cover a primer on the single pin picking (SPP) of pin and tumbler locks over the course of 15 minutes. Then spend about 35-40 doing hands on picking together before moving back to class-wide Q&A briefly. Then we spend the rest of the time picking and sharing advice. The 15 minutes of the presentation is formal, the rest is casual. Equipment If you have lockpicks or locks you’re encouraged to bring them. We do sell introductory kits and have a set of beginner locks and picks anyone can use. Instructor Note Hey I’m Flay. I’ve been lockpicking for years and was the 2 time winner of the GrrCon ‘Cage of shame’ lockpicking challenge. I think its great fun, and I’m excited to be able to encourage others in the hobby. Its my goal to ensure that everyone who comes to the meetup walks away having picked at least one lock and that all the veterans learn something from each other.
