Since the first event in 2004, t2 has released annual pre-conference challenges for the attendees, people interested in showcasing their skills or gaining free attendance to the event. In this video from 2016 Ludvig Strigeus and Timo Hirvonen walk through the challenge and show how it’s all done.
Even if you are not into solving challenges you can learn how Ludde created a complete taxi meter application with built-in casino games!
If you want to learn how to apply defensive measures to protect offensive operations and your capabilities, Jacob Torrey’s “Nano-Scale Red Teaming: Making REs Cry With Device-Specific Opaque Execution” from t2’16 is the presentation to watch.
The first video we are releasing is the ’16 keynote “Learning the wrong lessons from Offense” by none other than Haroon Meer himself. With strong focus on getting defense right, this is the keynote to watch, regardless of whether you’re into compromises or preventing them.
The beauty of good research is that it rarely gets old over night. Instead it matures, giving perspective to fundamentals or an outlook to a different time – possibly even igniting or re-igniting the passion and serving as a platform for fresh ideas. New technologies fall in the face of old methods yet defensive tactics still work despite being exposed to the real world for decades/centuries/millennia.
In 2015 we recorded talks for the first time, and continued doing so last year. These will be released semi-regularly, in no particular order, in the coming months. Having had the privilege of witnessing world class content at t2 over the years, we know what stands the test of time. While memes and movie references can either become classics or disappear completely, talent and fruits of persistent work remain.
Conferences are all about meeting people, making connections and exchanging information. By showcasing past presentations we hope to inspire you to start doing research and tinkering with technology – you will meet like-minded people from all over the world at t2.
