This week on Cyber Frontiers Christian Recaps DEFCON 24 and walks through highlights and observations from the conference proceedings. We talk about what it means to be a Jittery MacGyver (building a bionic hand from a coffee maker), manipulating airline boarding passes, hotel point of sale systems, reverse engineering, Java runtime exploitation, that pesky Windows Schannel library and more!

This year’s conference was hosted at Bally’s in Vegas. Approximately fifteen to twenty thousand of the world’s hacking elite attended for three days of fun. With 240 dollars cash paid at the door, electronic hacker badges, and no information required at registration – security evangelists from many different perspectives and communities were in attendance. We saw a variety of presenters international and domestic from universities, security companies, independent consultants, etc. give interesting talks throughout the security space.

All of the presentations for DEFCON 24 have now been posted to:

https://media.defcon.org

Audio and video for the conference should eventually start to be uploaded and published from DEFCON (the folders on the media drive are at least showing as of publishing this show).

If you attended DEFCON or are interested in having us cover one of the presentations in depth on a future podcast, shoot us a note and we’ll be happy to give you a deep dive analysis on the topic of your choosing!
