BSidesLasVegas 2011  

*A special thank you*

Over the last 2+ years we have witnessed the rebirth of the security community. The conversations are getting more potent and the "TALK AT YOU" conferences are starting to realize they have to change. YOU are the reason for this new era of Information Sharing and Teamwork. The BSides community has continuously raised the bar and put the INFO back in INFOSEC. We thank each and every member/attendee/organizer of this community for their hard work, sweat, and relentless pursuit of High Quality information. We also have to give a HUGE amount of thanks to a group of generous sponsors that have the foresight to give without strings attached and PROVE to the community that we are all in this together. In concert the members and sponsors have allowed for us all to get together and make moves to change Infosec.... one chat, speech, laugh, and/or drink at a time. Thank you ALL! Mushy stuff aside ..... we present YOUR BSIDESLV 2011



When: August 3-4, 2011

If you have been to BSidesLV before.... you know what you are in for *or do you?* For all of you that have not been to BSidesLV, well, be prepared. You will be attending an event of epic caliber. We transform a cozy Mansion into one of the biggest FREE security conference/meetups in the world. You will not be encouraged to sit still, you will not be in awkward silence, you will see speakers light up with delight as you ask questions DURING their talks. This is a community thrown event. 4 us by us. We invite you into the "deep end" of the pool and promise that no judgments will be made.... just time to relax, have fun, and oh yeah... LEARN/SHARE. Every member works day and night to make it THE EVENT to be at, *especially* if you can't afford Blackhat, and plan to be in town for Defcon. Or... if you are just gonna come out to LV to experience the BSides magic. We need sponsors, wranglers, handlers, speakers, nuts, looneys, the sane, and those of you that are somewhere in-between to all throw in a hand. Because this year.... we are going BIG.


 It most certainly will be the red carpet event of the security year.

This year at BSIDES we have had some awesome BSIDERS step up and offer FREE CLASSES to our attendees. More information to come on this amazing FREE Class experience from some of the best in the industry.


WEDS: Networking for Penetration Testers by +mubix and +punkrokk *2 classes



 Sometimes it's good to retake a class you took years ago to refresh the

 basics, see what's changed, or just get a chance to look at it from a new

 mindset. This class walks through the basics of networking and their use

 from a penetration tester's point of view and as part of thier bag of tricks.


 No 0day being dropped or crazy web application bugs being dropped, just

 old school tricks that still work. There should be something for everyone,

 even some tricks that even the most experienced testers might not know.


THURS: Mobile app security code reviews


This class will start by explaining common mobile application vulnerabilities

and mistakes made by developers. We will then focus on how to perform

security code reviews of mobile app code using Agnitio v2.0 and the mobile

app rule sets included with v2.0. The first 40 people to sign up will be allowed

in. The rest will be queued for no-shows, so if you are # 49 and you show up

on time (and 9 others don't) you're in. ps If there is enough interest we might

run the class twice so sign up early!











We are looking for sponsors that are ready to make a HUGE impact on the security world.

Please let us know if you want to be added to the schedule & if you are willing to sit at the back of a session and babysit a video camera.
