LayerOne 2007 - Line up Announcement

With less than a month remaining for this year's LayerOne event, we are 
happy to announce the final line up of presenters as well as the 
schedule of events. This year's event features several returning 
speakers as well as many new ones.

Two Defcon organizers, Zac Franken and Adam Laurie, will be presenting 
this year. Adam will be talking about RFID and the security issues that 
go along with it. If you have never seen Adam speak before, it is quite 
an experience. Zac will be discussing how most hardware based access 
control systems are flawed and will demonstrate a vendor agnostic attack 
that can be done using some simple code and about 5 dollars worth of 

Returning speakers include Datagram, and Rodney Thayer. Datagram is a 
prominent member of the local SoCal computer community and spoke on lock 
picking at last years event. This year Datagram will be discussing the 
basics of writing shellcode. Rodney Thayer is a member of The Shmoo 
Group and has been an active member of the security community for many 
years. Rodney will be talking about VoIP and the vulnerabilities that go 
along with it. Rodney is a terrific speaker and his presentation will 
definitely be a high point for this years event.

New for this year are presenters speaking on a wide variety of topics:

Rooster - Evolutionary Algorithms and Possible Applications in Security
Michael Weiss - Security Engineering in Windows Vista
Alexander Muentz - Lawyers or Skript Kiddies, Which is Worse?
Luiz Eduardo - Online (and offline) Banking Fraud
Ganesh Devarajan - SCADA Protocol Fuzzing
Michael Kemp - Responsible Disclosure
John Benson, J.D. - Bridging the Gap Between Technology and the Law
John Heasman - BIOS Rootkit Techniques

The presentations were selected not only for their content, but 
specifically to provide a wide range of material to conference 
attendees. Those that want 'deep geek' information can get it, while 
those interested in more esoteric ideas can find information they want 
as well.

Pre-Registration for the conference is 80 dollars. Tickets will be 
available at the door, but the cost will be 100 dollars. For more 
information, please visit our site: http://layerone.info

We look forward to seeing you in Pasadena, CA this May!
