Our DEF CON 28 day was a blast

Our DEF CON 28 day was a blast

4 portuguese security researchers presented at DEF CON this year. I’m sure that was a record 🙂

  • Paulo Silva and I with API (in)Security TOP 10: Guided tour to the Wild Wild World of APIs (which you can check the recording on Youtube).
  • Pedro Umbelino and João Morais with Android Bug Foraging (check the talk on Youtube)

With this in our mind, we gathered together at Char49 meeting room and saw it together… with drinks and pizza.

The fun was just starting. On Pedro and João talk, they included a never shown video  before regarding Google Camera issue which included myself being a victim of this vulnerability.

We even did the CONs tradition of “Shoot the N00b” for first time speakers – drink a shot before the talk. The poison was Pedro Umbelinos’ homemade firewater. I would lie if I would say that it didn’t hurt going down 🙂

In the end we had lot of fun and I hop enext year we can be together again giving a talk at DEF CON. Who knows?

PS: A new entry on my bucket list can now be checked – be a speaker at DEF CON.

DEF CON 28 here I go

Even in safemode, DEF CON 28 will be legendary, specially because for the first time… I’ll be a speaker 🙂
Some of my research was already present at DEF CON but now I’ll be actually speaking at the best security event in the world.

Paulo Silva and I will be talking about API (in)Security TOP 10: Guided tour to the Wild Wild World of APIs at AppSec Village and you can’t miss it.

Check out the agenda and don’t forget also to check Android Bug Foraging from my mates Pedro Umbelino and João Morais.
