I attended ICSA IPS meeting in Las Vegas last Friday (8/8). The attendees were the mix of technical and marketing people from different security companies. It is not ‘cool’ to take pictures in a ‘hacker’s’ meeting, so here are some random snapshots outside of the meeting of Las Vegas Casinos.
The real hacker’s meeting, Black Hat, took place just before the ICSA meeting at Caesar Palace. The focus was certainly Dan Kaminsky because his founding of the high-profile DNS vulnerability. But, his founding actually won the Pwnie Award for the Most Overhyped Bug. It is said Kaminsky was outrageous when this’s announced. Quite a fun scene.
