Alexander J. Urbelis This talk will reveal and discuss a disinformation operation that was gearing up to attack the Trump campaign during the summer of the 2016 presidential election. Trump’s surprisingly competent information control operation detected and halted the attack. Alexander will discuss how he and his law firm pieced together evidence of the disinformation attack and the Trump campaign’s countermeasures by collecting and analyzing DNS-related data.

David Cripe With continued geopolitical unrest among nuclear powers and the total ubiquity of electronics in every aspect of modern life, there is a concern over catastrophic events that could have the potential to disrupt and alter life as we know it. The threats of EMP (electromagnetic pulse) and CME (coronal mass discharge) are real and, should they occur, the results would impact the lives of millions. The physics behind these threats are analyzed, their effects and potential for damage...

** The first minute or so is missing - this will be replaced with the recording later in the week ** Jason Scott Every file has an end, every hard drive goes bad, and every carrier eventually drops. What matters is what we do when these expected (or unexpected) ends arrive. Jason Scott of the Internet Archive and Archive Team talks about endings, near-misses, and confronting finite resources and energy in a variety of situations that demand infinite amounts of attention, effort, and meaning....

Steven Rambam Your habits, hobbies, friends, family, location (today, and for the past 17 years), activities, deepest thoughts, and desires are known, indexed, and analyzed. Dataveillance is now all-encompassing and the "small window into your soul" is now a barn door. Data about these otherwise innocuous choices are now routinely merged and extrapolated into deep understanding of your personal characteristics and political beliefs, and are used to target you with information tailored...

Matt Blaze, Harri Hursti, Margaret MacAlpine Last year, the speakers organized the first ever Voting System Hacking Village at Defcon, in which the community was invited to example, take apart, and hack several real voting systems used in U.S. elections. Many exploitable vulnerabilities were discovered or reproduced over the course of the weekend. This talk will describe how the voting village was organized, the technical and legal challenges in doing so, and how you too can (legally!) obtain...

John Dunlap, Alex Ivanov For some, "script kiddie" is a term leveled at the younger, more boisterous, and less experienced members of the hacking community. For others, it’s a badge of honor confirming their dedication to the more inane, sardonic, and social aspects of the hacking scene. In this talk, these two New York City security veterans will give a loving tour of the history of the script kiddie scene. The speakers will describe the evolution of script kiddie staples such...

George Tankersley, Filippo Valsorda Cryptography is usually associated with encrypting and signing messages, but since the 1990s, the field developed new tools that bring completely new capabilities: from PAKE protocols that make bruteforcing passwords impossible, to zero-knowledge proofs enabling blind credentials. This talk will take a look at all those things modern cryptography can do beyond the old encryption and signatures. Source:...

Emmanuel Goldstein and friends One of HOPE's longest running traditions, this panel is a fun gathering where stories of social engineering triumphs and failures are shared. Social engineering is, of course, the subsection of hacking that focuses on obtaining information out of people by gaining their trust and lying through your teeth. As long as there's a human somewhere in the equation, this method of compromising security will always be possible. Techniques will be shared and an experiment...

Jennifer Helsby The SecureDrop anonymous whistleblowing platform has become the journalism industry standard for communicating with anonymous sources and accepting high security leaks. The system was co-created by the late Aaron Swartz and first announced at HOPE four years ago. Each SecureDrop instance is physically hosted inside a news organization, and sources communicate with journalists by accessing a web application available over a Tor onion service....

** Will be reposted with better audio** Inverse Phase There’s a whole community of individuals called the Demoscene trying to make art under extreme limitations, whether it be 3D graphics on an 8-bit Atari, or CD-quality music playback on a Commodore 64. This presentation will explain how that scene came to be, what it consists of now, and of course you’ll see some example demos!

David Goren Every day in Brooklyn, over 30 unlicensed radio stations fire up their transmitters and take to the air. Historically known as pirates, they crowd onto an already packed FM dial, beaming transgressive culture-bearing signals into West Indian, Orthodox Jewish, and Latino neighborhoods. The sound map project seeks to explore and understand the forces that drive these stations, the conditions they operate under, the needs of their audiences, and their effect on licensed stations.

This "aggressive research" uses methods and techniques that are directly at odds with the Twitter ToS. To best understand the motives and techniques of your adversary, it’s sometimes best to walk their shoes. Using and abusing Twitter API, using automation to engage suspicious accounts without using the API, and engaging in...
