Another Black Hat conference for the record books! It’s traditional for me to have a panic attack on the eve of Black Hat, trying to pull the Hacker Court team together to work on our presentation (“Hack MyFace”) and swearing I’m never doing this again. This year was even worse: the defendant, Simple Nomad, and the judge, Richard Salgado, both had to cancel at the last minute.
Hacker Court is once again returning to the Black Hat Briefings! For our seventh Black Hat presentation, we will be conducting a mock court trial focused on the issues of entrapment, journalist privilege and wiretapping, titled "Hack MyFace."
What is "Hacker Court?"
Hacker Court is a loose organization of attorneys, security professionals and hackers with the goal of demonstrating the dynamics, frustrations and complexity of computer crime trials.
I will be participating today in a White Hat World "Thought Leadership Roundtable Webcast" today at 2:00 PM EST on the topic of Phishing. Other panel members include representatives from Secure Computing, SonicWall, and Missing Link Security Services.

There are a few events occurring before the end of the year that Tenable will be participating in:
2007 DHS Security Conference and Workshop
Baltimore Maryland, August 27-30, 2007
I will be speaking at 3:45 this Monday, August 27 about how configuration management changes the way network security monitoring and incident response occur in non-obvious manners. Many of these sessions are only open to the US government.
