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!
By now we are all familiar with Threat Modeling and the very positive effects that it can have on application security. I've found that by tweaking the Threat Modeling Model (is that recursive?) just a bit you can also use it as a way to think about how to keep your infrastructure operating in tip-top shape when Murphy's Law strikes. Using these principles inside of some large companies, I have found surprising holes that were laying just under the surface. We will explore some of these and how threat modeling may have shown them up before they impacted business. Presentation by David Greer
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?
