Chaos Communication Congress Releases Talks

Unknown Lamer posted more than 2 years ago | from the all-hail-the-chaos dept.

Security 15

First time accepted submitter jehan60188 writes with this excerpt from an article from Hack a Day: "The 28th Annual Chaos Communication Congress just wrapped things up on December 31st and they've already published recordings of all the talks at the event. These talks were live-streamed, but if you didn't find time in your schedule to see all that you wanted, you'll be happy to find your way to the YouTube collection of the event. The topics span a surprising range. We were surprised to see a panel discussion on depression and suicide among geeks ... which joins another panel called Queer Geeks, to address some social issues rather than just hardcore security tech. But there's plenty of that as well with topics on cryptography, security within web applications, and also a segment on electronic currencies like Bitcoins.'" The CCC wiki has a list of mirrors with downloads in multiple formats (including WebM).

The 28C3 ended on December 30th (not 31st), and the Recordings have been available for Days already.

"offtopic"? Another case of blatant abuse of moderation privileges. Just because you disagree with a post, you are still not entitled to mod it down without a real reason.

I suspect it's Offtopic because most of us who clicked on this story want to see discussion on the actual presentations. Who the fuck cares if the date is off and the talks have been up for a while? If he already knew about them and that's all he had to share then he deserves the mod down.

Recommendations. (3, Interesting)

neokushan (932374) | more than 2 years ago | (#38571174)

I highly recommend the Atari 2600 talk, it was interesting and fun. Any other recommendations?

Re:Recommendations. (2)

kju (327) | more than 2 years ago | (#38571184)

Well, if you understand German, I highly recommend the "Fnord Jahresrückblick" (or Fnord News Show).

And of course watch the Hacker Jeopardy!

Re:Recommendations. (2)

moeffju (114331) | more than 2 years ago | (#38571584)

We actually live-translated that and the translated talk is also available as 28c3-4936-en-fnord_jahresrueckblick_h264.mp4, so you don't have to know German to enjoy it :)

Torvac (691504) | more than 2 years ago | (#38571222)

attacks on TOR talk was really interesting and i recommend hash collision attacks talk ("Effective Denial of Service ...")

Re:Recommendations. (3, Informative)

lindi (634828) | more than 2 years ago | (#38571248)

Packets in packets was interesting idea.

Re:Recommendations. (2)

Kikuchi (1709032) | more than 2 years ago | (#38572780)

I can tell you to not watch "Quantum of science"
I tried to watch it and gave up mid-video because I don't think I ever saw a more confusing talk.

If you find the topic interesting, I would recommend "Cellular protocol stacks for Internet" []
Like the summary says, it's meant as an introduction to those who are not familiar with all these barbarians mobile phone protocols.

Re:Recommendations. (0)

My favorite talks were Kinect Fusion Hacking Prisons How governments have tried to block Tor BlackOps of TCP/IP 2011 (Random cool Stuff) 802.11 Packets in Packets Killing web applications with hash collisions History of Names Timing Attacks

But I haven't even watched half of them yet.

Translated talks (5, Informative)

moeffju (114331) | more than 2 years ago | (#38571630)

Some of the German talks have been live-translated into English; the recordings are available:


We hope to be able to live translate everything next year, so if you appreciate the translations, please let us know! My e-mail is on my homepage @ [] or just tweet with #28c3en hashtag.

Don't watch future of cryptology (1)

Gunstick (312804) | more than 2 years ago | (#38572956)

I could only watch 20 minutes, then after a felt dozens of "titanic" mentions I finally changed to the other stream...

If you wonder how to get it in one go (1)

devent (1627873) | more than 2 years ago | (#38574014)

If you wonder how to get it in one go: go to the mirrors [] , there you can use a ftp mirror. If you want to use rsync just do: rsync -rh --progress rsync://*webm . (you must take a mirror with rsync enabled).

nick farr ftw (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 2 years ago | (#38574540)

if you just want to be entertsined, then watch the nick farr bits. Most of them are hillarious...oh, and avoid the social network talk, unless you're another nlp weirdo.
