Presenters and Presentations
We are forever looking for volunteers to present at the chapter meetings, so if you've seen something interesting or you have something to say, please let us know.
Often, when we approach potential presenters, we tend to get the following response – “I don’t think my topic is interesting enough”. We just want to stress that as long as the topic is security related – we’re all ears! We’re just a bunch of nice people wanting to learn/share our knowledge of the security domain. So if you would like to present or know of someone that does, please contact us.
Presentations must be vendor agnostic (no selling of products or services), and please review the Speaker Agreement linked above.
Next Brisbane Chapter Meeting - Tuesday October 8, 2013
In October's meeting, Mark Phillips will present on the topic of "RF Hacking using GNURadio - An Introduction".
RF hacking and analysis has been gaining coverage in the security press over the past 18 months. This session will introduce you to the concepts of RF, "software defined radio" and the GNURadio framework:
- RF fundamentals
- GNURadio Framework
- Demo - Flowgraphs, signal capture and analysis
This will be an introductory session designed to give you enough knowledge to start playing with these tools, and to help you better understand the advanced RF hacking demos you will start to see at conferences like Ruxcon / Blackhat etc.
Mark has worked as an IT security consultant in the financial services industry for many years, however this presentation draws upon his long term interest in RF as an Amateur Radio operator.
