Title:      Blackhat 2011 recap
Presenter:  Ari Trachtenberg
Location:   PHO 339
Time:       Friday, January 28, 10-11am
NISLAB weekly seminar, in conjuction with the RISCS center

This month's Blackhat conference covered a frightening array
of potential exploits, including:
* Setting up rogue base stations to take over cellphones
* Attempts at technical attribution of the Stuxnet worm
* Bypassing tamper-evident seals
* Counterattacking hackers
* Making your cellphone look like a mouse
* Attacking the clouds
This presentation will cover as many of these as time allows,
with an *attempt* to minimize required technical background.

Supported with funds from the College of Engineering Inaugural
Innovative Engineering Education Faculty Fellowship.
