BlackHat Last week

August 6th, 2006 by Pete


I have just returned from the Blackhat briefings in Las Vegas that happened August 2nd and August 3rd. I spoke there about Unwrapping PL/SQL on Wednesday morning. This was a great conference, some great presentations and some great people there. I had a great time speaking and listening. The trip was very tiring for me though, roughly 5100 miles in each direction and an 8 hour time zone switch all over 4 days. This is why I have not had not posted here for more than a week. I was not really enamoured with the thought of connecting to the Internet via wireless in a town full of security experts and hackers! - The DefCon confernece was also on last week.

I have just found a nice preview article by Bill Brenner (Who I had the great pleasure to meet in person in Las Vegas - we have spoken only via email previously) that gives a good intro to the presentations. I will write here tomorrow about mine, Alex's and some of the others I went to listen to. Bill's article is "Black Hat preview: Spotlight on Vista, new exploits"
