A mea culpa ... video ain't easy.

It feels like it's 2011 again :-)

Last year we learned that streaming and recording an event like BruCON (or any conference) is not an easy feat. As we didn't want to lose another year of awesome BruCON talks, we did everything we could to ensure high quality recordings and we have them ... but they're not ready for publication yet.  In an effort to bring them to you as fast as possible, the cutting of the video wasn't done as good as it could have been and (more importantly) there are not enough keyframes in the final video files.

All of this means that the talks don't always begin at the beginning or end at the end. Moreover the sound gets out of sync very quickly too.  The combination of both issues forces us to redo the whole editing effort.

You can rest assured that we do have the content and we're doing everything we can to bring it to you as soon as possible but at this moment, we can not fix ourselves to a date.

This is another year of learning for us and we're honest to admit that A/V is probably one of our weakest points ... Knowing this, we're already putting everything into place to improve on this in 2013.

We are not Derbycon (Adrian, how do you do it?) but the least we can do is capture our awesome content for posterity.

Announcing BruCON 5by5

It isn't a secret that next year, in 2013, BruCON will have it's 5th and celebratory edition. Every single year our crew and volunteers give everything to create an event that attracts both the IT professionals but also the 'hackers' and provides an open forum to exchange ideas. 

BruCON, as a non-profit organization, is embedded in a community that is build on breakers and makers alike and dedicated to its success. For this we have created and announced 5by5.

For 2012, we have allocated a budget of € 25.000 to 5by5 and we have documented everything about the project here : 5by5 project brief

We're looking forward to support at least 5 projects with a maximum budget of € 5.000 per project.

In short : we are looking at the creative minds of the world to come up with projects that benefit our global community. We specifically don't want to limit the subject your research or project can be about, as long as it is creative and has some kind of purpose we're happy to take a look at it.

The goal of this initiative is to support independent research and creativity in the community. We would be particularly happy if some of the supported projects grow to maturity in the next 12 months and can be presented at BruCON 2013 but that isn't the primary target.

For now, please start submitting your projects to 5by5-at-brucon-dot-org !!

HINT-HINT: BruCON is looking for an electronic or otherwise kick-ass badge for our 2013 edition. If you have this badge idea that you knows rocks like Led Zeppelin but you were never able to create, you know what to do now !!

after #brucon is before #brucon

I think @er4z0r is 100% right with that quote :-)

Let me first take this opportunity to thank you, our audience, to make BruCON 0x04 what it turned out to be : AWESOME!

Of course we do our best to bring the finest of infosec to Belgium to share knowledge and spur discussion. Our volunteers go on a minimum sleep diet months before the conference and give everything they have to make your conference enjoyable. In the end it is you, our attendees, that come out in large numbers with open minds, ready to discuss a variety of topics and share your expertise. This is what gives BruCON the unique atmosphere of being among friends (if not family) for two days straight. We can't be more thankful for that. It's also our honor to dedicate € 25.000 to the ideas and projects that will solve tomorrows infosec challenges through our 5by5 initiative. BruCON is a conference by the community for the community. We will announce details about 5by5 by the middle of next week!

Yes, we too were scared of the impact of moving the conference to Ghent. It turned out that the awesome vibe of the city fitted our conference well and I don't think it is a surprise that we decided to stay put for the foreseeable future.

As we are now looking forward to the 0x05 edition, we realize that this will be a special anniversary edition. It shouldn't be a surprise that we are already planning today :-)

The details for our 2013 edition are :

Location : Ghent
Training dates : September 24th and 25th
Conference dates : September 26th and 27th

Yes, there will be some surprises to be announced in the coming weeks and months so stay tuned and get ready to turn it up a notch for BruCON 0x05 : the anniversary edition !

Content for Brucon 0x04 aka BruCON 2012

Hello Friends,

Recently we received some questions (again) about the move to Ghent and if that would mean that BruCON would change it's name. That is certainly not the case. We could have avoided this by moving to Bruges (pretty city, a little far away from the airport) or even Brussegem (don't ask ;-)). The choice for Ghent was a concious one, based on budget and general feedback from our attendees.  It makes sense that  , in the US, you don't move NYcon to San Francisco, but in a country as small as Belgium and as a non-profit organisation we believe we can have our con in another city without compromising the 'brand'. We're pretty sure you agree with us :-)

Today, we're ready to announce our (almost) full list of talks and workshops !! We believe the CFP team did a tremendous job at scoring all the talks and we can assure you choices were tough this year.  Here goes :


Keynotes
Ed Skoudis - founder and senior security consultant with InGuardians
Katie Moussouris - Lead Security Community Outreach and Strategy team at Microsoft

Talks
Georgia Weidman - Introducing the Smartphone Penetration Testing Framework
Robert McArdle - HTML5 - A Whole New Attack Vector

Allison Miller - A Million Mousetraps: Using Big Data and Little Loops to Build Better Defenses
Mathy Vanhoef - New flaws in WPA-TKIP
Martin Gallo - Uncovering SAP vulnerabilities: dissecting and breaking the Diag protocol
Fernando Gont - Recent Advances in IPv6 Security
Gregory Pickett - pMap, the silent killer
Carlos Garcia - How I met your pointer (Hijacking client software for fuzz and profit)
Paul Marsh - Satellite Hacking

Registrations are open

Oh boy, have the past few weeks been a rollercoaster ride.  Putting up a registration engine for a conference is one thing, putting up one that you know will be scrutinized by the very public it is intended for is a completely different ballgame :-) I can tell you that Seba, Xavier and a few other people on the crew have pulled their weight and made it happen.  A special shout out should go out to the people at StratSec who have generously offered to put our precious registration site to the test by bashing it like an APT going full ninja on a springroll. And with that, it is LIVE :

Brucon and Derbycon ... we're still friends :-)

Lately, there's been a quite some chatter on the twitterverse about an apparent conflict in dates between BruCON and Derbycon.

BruCON training is held on the 24th and 25th of September, the conference itself is held on the 26th and 27th.  Derbycon has training on the 27th and the conference itself is from the 28th to the 30th of September. We're on two different continents but we would agree that two kick-ass conferences so close to eachother would be a little too much for the weak of heart :-)

From the early planning stages, the Derbycon and BruCON teams have been in touch to make sure the conference dates didn't fully collide and we're happy to have achieved that.  We believe (or believed?) that the number of people who'd be lucky enough to be able to attend both trainings and conferences on different continents in the same month would be very, very limited and as such not a lot of agenda conflicts would arise.

To organize a conference there's a lot of details that need to fall in the right place, training locations, conference venues, volunteers, sponsor agendas, speakers, etc... some of those don't leave you a lot of flexibility to move around and accomodate everybody's wishes. Given that we're totally supportive of Derbycon and the huggable crew running it, we can only say that we'll work even harder to avoid to be too close to eachother.

For those looking at attending both, there are flights leaving Brussels on the morning of the 28th that will get you in Louisville around 2.30pm where Dave and the crew should be waiting with open arms to welcome you to Derbycon!

We require your feedback

Hey BruCON people, here's a short blogpost to launch a survey requesting your feedback on training opportunities at BrUCON. This year we want to be even more aware of your education needs so we can try whatever we can to attract knowledgeable speakers with the ability to share her knowlege with you as a student.

Please take a few minutes to provide your feedback here : https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/brucon2012

One person who has completed the review will receive a BruCON ticket that provides access to the event for the two whole days.

Thanks in advance,
Kind Regards

BruCON 2012 ... it's on !

3,2,1 ... BruCON 2012 is a go! 

In the past few months, after a few weeks of rest, we've looked back, learned some lessons and listened to your feedback. One of the most gratifying things about organizing a conference is that the attendees tell us that they had a good time, learned a lot, made friends and overall enjoyed our event. We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone that supported BruCON since it's inception in 2009. The event would not exist without you!

And now we're here, happy that the Mayans allow us to organize yet another epic information security event in Belgium. So here are the details :

Dates 
Training : September 24th and 25th
Conference : September 26th and 27th

Location
University of Ghent
Voldersstraat 9
9000 Ghent

Yes, you've read that right. BruCON 2012 will not be held in Brussels. We've had long discussions about this change and all opinions have been heard. Everybody remembers that we had our event in 2009 and 2010 at the Belgacom Surfhouse in Evere. This was an awesome location but in 2011, it was no longer available so we had to find another location. The VUB Campus was a good location but it also had some down-sides. It wasn't perfect. BruCON being a not-for-profit organisation and Brussels being the 'Capital of Europe' it turned out to be very difficult to find a location that could accomodate an audience of ca. 400 people with affordable catering and room for workshops. That's where we started to think that Brussels wasn't the only city in Belgium that could host BruCON and that the conference was more about the atmosphere, the collaboration and the state of mind than it was about the city it was held in. After scouting some of the possible locations, we settled for Ghent and that's where BruCON 2012 will take place. 

In the coming days we will announce our Call For Training, Call For Papers and a lot of other details that we need to share with you. For now, we are excited to kick off another BruCON year! We're all looking forward to seeing you in Ghent later this year!

Before we start our preparations for 2012 ...

Hello BruCON people!

Before we kick start living towards a new installment of Brucon 2012 we have an apology to make.

All volunteers contributing to the conference are doing their utmost to make everything work and from the feedback we received we haven't fumbled in 99% of what makes the event one of your favorite conferences in Europe. However, this year, we feel we have let you down on one specific point : the recordings and publication of our talks.

Due to technical difficulties we didn't prepare for we were unable to recover a great part of the recordings and thus are not able to share them with a wider audience.

What we were able to recover is available at http://files.brucon.org . We know it is not a lot and we sincerely apologize for this.

That said, we will do everything we can to prevent this from happening ever again by reviewing our setup and preparing for as many scenario's as possible. If you have particular experience in this area and feel you are able to help us out, we're open to your suggestions and happy to hear from you at info 0x40 brucon.org !
