AthCon begins


“A beginning is the time for taking the most delicate care that the balances are correct” –Frank Herbert’s Dune.

AthCon begins today. Since it is the first AthCon it really begins today. It is a non-product, non-vendor-biased conference aiming to present the best research and cutting edge exploitation techniques from the field’s leading experts. I feel extremely privileged that I was invited to participate in the (first) PC of such an effort. However due to the 24-hour strike of the public transportation workers and the law of unexpeted consequences that always finds opportunity to emerge I will not be able to attend the event. I was really looking forward to watch:

  • “OWASP Top 10 – 2010: Towards a secure Software Development Lifecycle” by Konstantinos Papapanagiotou
  • “Context-Keyed Payload Encoding: Fighting the Next Generation of IDS” by Dimitrios Glynos and
  • “BNF (Backus-Naur Form) based blackbox fuzzing” by Chariton Karamitas

Maybe these kind souls will email me their presentations.

Good luck AthCon and be a nice journey. See you next year and every year!

    Hey mate!

    The 24hr strike was a real headache indeed …but thankfully ΟΣΕ was working alright and the conference was right next to the Δεκέλεια stop. So once you’re on the train to Chalkida, it was just a 15minute ride (1e!).

    From what I understand all videos will be uploaded at some point (as well as the rest of the presentation material).

    At least for the context-keying presentation I’d urge you to prefer the whitepaper rather than the video, since I was racing for time :-)

    My presentation material is available here.

    Take care!

    I missed ATHCon for the same reason (the strike!)
