What we're about

Hacking and Making the World a better place since 2009. We're Ann Arbor's Original Makerspace. If you're just learning to solder or if you're a wiz with a sewing machine, or like to code around some neat people, come do things with us. We have all sorts of tools (3D printers, 3D scanners, sewing machines, soldering stations) and lots of curious makers. It's a great place to hang.

AHA Build Night!!!

AHA! (All Hands Active)

Our longest running event. Generally starts around 7pm and heats up as more people bring projects to work on, share things with each other (sometimes cookies), or do a little socializing. These evenings occasionally have themes. We'll have a volunteer on staff by 7pm to assist if you need help using our workshop. If you arrive to find that the upstairs doors to the building are locked, please try the door at the bottom of the "Deliveries Only" staircase. It can be found on the north side/parking lot area of the building, adjacent to 5th Ave..

Member Social Night

AHA! (All Hands Active)

Member Social Night is a time to meet, hang out, meet some members, meet some future members, hear about projects, and just generally chill. Come say hi!

Peer to Peer Botnet Infrastructure

AHA! (All Hands Active)

C2 Servers can be cumbersome. First, they are a key piece used in attribution. Second, they can be subject to DoS attacks from adversaries. Finally, they require maintenance. Gross! Join me for a detailed walkthrough going from 0 to 60 in creating a completely peer to peer botnet. We will discuss decentralized methods for issuing commands in a secure way, various methods to disguise traffic and how to opportunistically schedule communication with other "normal" traffic. As usual, this is instructional and meant to educate the public on what is possible. I don't condone computer crime.
