DEF CON 21 - Doing Bad Things to 'Good' Security Appliances
Taylorlouat December 16,2016 I really loved the approach he took about creating a dialog and changing the way we approach cyberspace and the different types of people who use it. Like what he said about encroaching on a person's backyard, if you come in and take over a space, dictate what occurs there, then yes there's a very large possibility there is going to be push back. But, I also agree that there are two sides to the coin. There is also a lot of bad that comes with a lot good. Just like in the real world, cyber space is shared. There do need to be more initiatives in creating the right kind of dialogue from both the hacker community and the government to propel the common mission of creating a safe space. This applies not only in the US but on an international scale as well.
ahammes12at December 16,2016 This was a very interesting video from DEFCON 21 that discusses many different stories regarding the government and DoD. Specifically how policies and decisions affect a person’s mindset and future actions. It was surprising to hear the story in the video about the DoD actually helping to create WikiLeaks by pulling funding and grant research money.
Lat December 16,2016 It is nice to hear the perspective from both the private and government side of computer security and hacker organizations. The stories were unexpected, but not surprising considering how close knit it seems. I like the gold ATM story.
shubhraguptaat April 02,2017 Interesting government and DoD story cases. And how it eventually resulted in the creation of Wikileaks. People should be aware of what consequences they will face while doing these activities.
jahmadat April 02,2017 Long video but interesting. I found it interesting how the government tried to hide the truth. The great thing about this video is the freedom of speech allowed by the individual, in some other countries this wouldn't be possible. I find it scary though how the government has these mass surveillance programs and what they could be doing with that data.
