Handcuffs & Restraints REDUX

:..>We have all seen movies and enough episodes of COPS to fantasize about that in the strange case that we are arrested or kidnapped we can pull a Houdini and escape our captors. Join Nite0wl for a 30 Minute presentation about how to get out of handcuffs, shackles, flex restraints and other forms of Boys In Blue Bondage from our real life Houdini, Nite0wl. Topics will include the history of handcuffs, how handcuffs work and techniques to get out of these restraints. This talk will be followed up by a OPEN PROJECT WORKSHOP at 9:10pm on how to forge your own Smith & Wessin Handcuff key from a blank.

:..>Bio: Nite 0wl has been picking and bypassing locks since kindergarten and continues to do this at his own expense. Most famous for exposing the ease of replicating TSA Keys ( he has spoken on communications and physical security at The New York Times as well as at various less formal events. You may have recognized him in his recurring role as “sleep deprived volunteer who is outweighed by his beard” at previous HOPE conferences or at various TOOOL lockpicking villages.

The Ninja Guide to OpenVAS

:..>A ninja on the digital battlefield must have a full arsenal of open source tools at his or her disposal to defend the dynamo and jump kick daemons out of the shadows. OpenVAS is a framework of several services and tools offering comprehensive and powerful vulnerability scanning and vulnerability management solutions.
