Dedicated to Kathy & Ralph, thank you for always welcoming the hackers.
Obfuscating PDF Malware
My first talk of the day was
Excellent intro to PDFs and very well explained, especially for that time in the morning.
Mobile Application Hardening
In the afternoon I made it to Grant Douglas & Nikola Cucakovic talking about Mobile Application Hardening. They started with a very well explained intro to reversing mobile apps, then moved on to simple and advanced code obfuscation techniques. There was a very interesting section on instrumenting apps with Frida were they gave a few examples of what it can do.
Really well presented talk which had something for everyone. Unfortunately it wasn’t recorded.
This years closing keynote was, me! I had my talk,
ISIS Online: Junaid Hussain, accepted but about a week before I was asked if I would deliver it as the closing keynote.
Thank you to the committee for trusting me to not fuck it up, the people who asked questions at the end and everyone who gave me feedback. It was an honour to close out Securi-Tay 2019 with my first keynote talk.
It wasn’t recorded and I wont be releasing the slides. If you’re interested, I’ve submitted to it a few other UK conferences and published a list of source material.
Finally, I highly recommend that you read this obituary of Chief Petty Office Shannon Kent.
