IndySec 5 - Notes

Thirteen people showed up altogether and three of them were new people. I know of atleast five that canceled at the last minute, but that's understandable.

Some random surveys were tossed around like. Favorite O/S, first O/S, etc.

So the favorite O/S amongst the group was any flavor of BSD.

The first O/S seemed to be Red Hat 5.2-7.

Conversations ranged from RFID, to wireless security (mainly deauths with WPA), to sebek, ruby on rails, and a pretty large discussion on USB.

A couple folks talked about disabling USB mass storage devices, by vendor and then later a talk sparked about pam_usb which I blogged about earlier. There is a new version out now that is available via SVN that provides a lot of fixes to the last version.

I did my part by trying to introduce as many people as possible and I think everyone got to know each other alittle more.

What topics is everyone interested in discussing next time?

IndySec 5 - Mingling

Do you [Work|Consult|Research] in [Cyber|Data|Information] Security around the Indianapolis area?

Are you looking to get into this field or just have a interest on some of the topics?

Come to this meeting, eat some food, grab some drinks, talk some geek, and get to know the other people who have similar interests and jobs as yourself.

I'm personally inviting over twenty (maybe more) folks to come to this event. Over the past year I've met way too many people in the area who don't seem to know how many talented people and opportunies surround them.

Make arrangements and join us for fun at Bucca!

When: Thursday, February 22nd, 6:30-8:30PM
Where: Downtown - Buca di Beppo

Buca di Beppo
35 North Illinois Street
Indianapolis, IN 46204

Meet near the bar, we'll count how many people show up and grab some tables to have dinner.
