Official DefCon group for Rhode Island. This is a resurrection of the DC401 that previously existed, now with the blessing of its former organizer, Agent5. Local DefCon groups cover anything and everything about security. Making, breaking, updating, learning, discussing. One time we might do some soldering, another time we might build a password cracking rig, we might play with a device from the Internet of Things (ugh, that's as painful a term as "cyber" now), maybe do pentesting, pretty much anything that you want to talk about! And best of all, it's free for all!
Jesse Roberts of Compass IT Compliance will come back to talk about how to use Burp Proxy to view and intercept mobile application traffic. Have you ever wondered how a mobile application interacts with its servers? What is in the requests and responses? And can you alter the traffic to get free stuff in games (hopefully not)? Jesse will show us how to run mobile application traffic from our phone or other device through Burp Proxy to see what requests are made and what responses are coming back.
If you want to try it out yourself, install the Community Edition of Burp Suite, which you can get here: https://portswigger.net/burp/communitydownload
Unrestricted file uploads can break your web application and give attackers a pivot point into your network, whether it's in the cloud or in your data center. Learn some basic techniques that you can use to ensure your application continues to work the way you expect it to, no matter what programming language your application is written in.

We are bringing back DC401! I think we have a great hackerspace for us, just working out those details now. I am targeting January for a first meetup. But I'll get the space squared away and I'm asking that you come and present on something. Let's turn this into a mini-CFP. Post below what you can talk about. Let's say something that takes 15-20 mins for starters. Anything at all related to making, breaking, hacking, building, whatever. Whatcha got people?
