applied security conferences and training: CanSecWest | PacSec | EUSecWest |

CanSecWest 2015

The 15th annual CanSecWest conference will be held March 18-20th, 2015 at the Sheraton Wall Centre hotel in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia.

Interact with the security community

CanSecWest, the world's most advanced conference focusing on applied digital security, is about bringing the industry luminaries together in a relaxed environment which promotes collaboration and social networking. The conference lasts for three days and features a single track of thought provoking presentations, each prepared by an experienced professional and talented educator who is at the cutting edge of his or her field. We give preference to new and innovative material, highlighting important, emergent technologies, techniques, or best industry practices.

The conference is single track, with one hour presentations over the duration beginning at 9:00 a.m. The registration fee includes the catered meals, and there will be a vendor display and lounge/eating area, where wireless internet access will be available (as well as in the speaking theater). The conference discount hotel room booking system can be found here.

Some late announcements, a new paper:

Sniff keystrokes with lasers/voltmeters: Side Channel Attacks Using Optical Sampling of Mechanical Energy Emissions and Power Line Leakage - Andrea Barisani and Daniele Bianco, Inverse Path

Some more details about mobile targets:

On the browser side, we will be running the latest bleeding edge version of each browser platform we can get our hands on (Yes that means the Safari 4 beta, the latest build of IE8 we can get our hands on, and the upcoming FireFox release) on each of the two prize laptops (for the corresponding multi-os browsers). We will wipe the laptops and restore them to their factory conditions after the contest.

On the social agenda side of things, our rf-lab toting, 3d camera tracking wizard, Marc Alfonso, who moonlights as a ski patroller and medic on Grouse, will be taking a group to ski by the moonlight (and other lighting) at Grouse mountain night skiing, on Wednesday night. You have to find your own way up to the gondola in North Vancouver (and they have night skating too), and Marc will be your experienced guide. Watch this space for instructions on how to sign up for this outing. Thursday night party venue and details TBD.

The detailed agenda will be published shortly, but a head's up for folks, we are considering moving the lightning talks to Wednesday.
