DEFCON luminary Ryan “1o57” Clarke (pronounced “Lost”) spoke with me about the badge challenge which he helms each year. In the video above 1o57 shows off one of the custom made “Uber Badges” awarded to winners of several contests at DEFCON 24.
My DEFCON 24 badge, which I was convinced was emitting a RF signal. Possibly communicating with our benevolent robot overlords? Alas, no RF detected.
Jake’s DEFCON talk was fun and rapid fire. He delved into his project with partner Lee Johnstone called Arrest Tracker which is a database used to profile cyber crime. Jake had 140 slides and he kept the pace quick. He did give ample props to Threat Butt and other online critics/satirists who represent the disenfranchised and attribution skeptics within the online security industry.
