Thought this might be of interest to Linux (often security talks are
windows issues related) and other people needing to analyse strange
binaries under Linux.
Ruxmon Melbourne is on this Friday. As usual, we will adjourn to the
Oxford Scholar for a meal and a bit of a meet and greet.
Ruxmon is a free monthly community security event organised and run by
the Ruxmon team.
We are currently looking for some new Ruxmon speakers. Please email me
if you would like to speak on anything security related for between
10-30 minutes in front a small and non-intimidating audience.

Introductory level hooking in Linux - Ryan Platt
This talk will walk through methods of tracking execution of Linux
binaries, including an example of a simple Linux Kernel Module hooking
the system call table and usermode hooking by patching binaries on
disk.Introductory level hooking in Linux.
Introducing Daisho: an open source multi-protocol network tap - Dominic Spill
Every communication technology should have a widely available network
tap, preferably operating as close to the physical layer as possible.
If we can't tap the comms, assessing their security is a much harder
task. As we try to squeeze more bandwidth out of our links the problem
gets even tougher.
Our solution to this problem is project Daisho; an open source
hardware and software project to build a device that can monitor high
speed communication links and pass all of the data back to a host
system for analysis. Daiso will include a modular, high bandwidth
design that can be extended to monitor future technologies. The
project will also produce the first open source USB 3.0 FPGA core,
bringing high speed data transfer to any projects that build on the
As a proof of concept at this early stage, Dominic will demonstrate
monitoring of a low bandwidth RS-232 connection using our first round
of hardware and discuss the challenges involved with the high speed
targets that we will take on later this year.
