== DeepSec In-Depth Security Conference 2009 "TripleSec" ==
This is a reminder for the third DeepSec conference, taking place between
17th and 20th November at the Imperial Riding School Renaissance Hotel.
== Schedule ==
The schedule of all presentations can be found on our web site:
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 used today.
