Lockpicking - 02/20/2015 Meeting

At this Friday's meeting we'll be picking locks! This will be a break from the world of cyber security and a foray into the world of physical security. There will be a brief powerpoint intro on the basics, and then we'll have a bunch of locks to play with.



If you have any locks, picks, or tension wrenches please bring them!
- Don't bring locks you don't own.
- Don't bring locks you rely on for security.

WHEN: Friday 5pm, February 20th
WHERE: DCC 324

Guest Speaker: Brendan Dolan-Gavitt - 02/13/2015 Meeting

Brendan Dolan-Gavitt, a systems security researcher at Columbia University, will be a guest speaker at our meeting this week. Brendan is an expert in memory forensics and reverse engineering, so this will be a very interesting talk!



He will provide an introduction to PANDA, the Platform for Architecture-Neutral Dynamic Analysis. Built to make reverse engineering more efficient, PANDA includes support for LLVM analyses, deterministic record/replay, dynamic taint analysis, Android emulation, and a flexible plugin architecture. To demonstrate PANDA's capabilities, he will show how it can be used to break Spotify DRM and help build a key generator for Starcraft. Finally, he will discuss recent improvements to PANDA's taint system and introspection capabilities, and provide a look at the road ahead.



Hope to see you all tomorrow!
