At my class, you will notice at about 3min in there is some lady talking
loud on her phone, and it was very distracting for me.

Just got to 4 mins in and did notice it!

Just have to chime in on the CPE issue. ?Those that are simply
accruing CPEs and not there for the love of it is yet another symptom
of what separates "them" from "us".

Not all professions will have people who are passionate about what
they do... however IMO InfoSec seems to not yet have done a good job
of culling the posers.

(enough ranting about that)

When I present, I try to use those CPE snaggers as a barometer. ?If I
can get them into the session, that I'm fairly confident that I'm
making this meaningful for everyone. ?The only problem that I
routinely see with this is that I wind up having to shoot a bit lower
than I'd like. ?Yet when I ask around, most folks seem to like the
lowered bar. ?:-( ?I think the issue is that most folks who go to
these events don't actually want their hair blown back. ?They just
want a few tips and tricks... If you throw them into the deep end,
they don't all float! ?;-p

Well that's been my experience anyway.

Well, I'm guessing on the juse showing up for CPE. Some of the folks
were
accountants as I understand it, and really did not seem to understand
the
tech. Also, I offered to hand around after class to let people play with
the
tech, and most wanted to be out of there when the 4hrs were up.

I could do timing better next time, but these classes I've been teaching
are
one offs. The next one will be on a different topic.

As for Christopher's question, I have no idea how much time I spent
outside
of class just getting things to work. I spent a lot of time just getting
all
of my demos in order and writing notes for them.

Thats interesting. It wouldnt even cross my mind to spend time
somewhere
just for CPE if im not interested. How did you notice some werent
really
there for the topic?
Btw. how many attendees do you have for these ISSA events?

Well, I ran the class Saturday, unfortunately things di not go as
smoothly as I would have liked. Originally, this was going to be one
4hr class, but Jeff had something come up so he could not cover
WEP/WPA cracking, and my section took so long that Brian never got a
chance to present his material on DD-WRT. I'm hoping to get them back
to do a part 2 of this video. In this section I cover the basics of
WiFi, good chipsets, open file shares, monitor mode, war driving
tools, testing injection, deauth attacks and the evil twin attack.
Some of this comes out as kind of a stream of consciousness, but
hopefully you can find some useful nuggets from my brain dump of what
I've learned about 802.11a/b/g/n hacking. As far as classes goes this
is the mostly complicated one I've set up.

Things I've learned by trying to teach this class:

1. Wireless classes take lots of wires. Brian and I had to run a lot
of cables to get all of our routers, video equipment and laptops
functioning.
2. I have no idea how long it will take me to demo something live.
3. The Jeffersonville library needs more APs.
4. Lots of folks will show up for CPE, but may not really be
interested in the subject.
5. Don't chew gum while teaching.
6. My VGA to S-Video adapter needs some adjusting so it does not crop
the sides.
