Random speaker and content from the schedule:
Karsten Nohl from H4RDW4RE will present the latest development on his project
to break A5/1 with the help of pre-computed tables as announced at HAR 2009.
Karsten Nohl says, that a public PoC on cracking GSM"s encryption is
necessary to raise awareness about the risks of sending sensitive information
over GSM networks. In March 2008 the finalisation of A5/1 rainbow tables was
announced but never released in public, the first academic attacks date even
back to 1997. Today it is believed that agencies and well-funded
organizations have access to efficient A5/1 crackers. Publishing a practical
attack in public will give a better awareness about the situation of an
encryption scheme that was designed and developed in the 1980ies and still
