Black Hat 2006

Black Hat 2006 USA starts tomorrow in Los Vegas and has an interesting schedule, with sponsors including Microsoft and Cisco. Apparently, Microsoft is showing off the security of Internet Explorer 7 and Vista at the show.

I would love to go to the conference. Perhaps next year…

If you’re interested in a taste, there are copies of the Power Point presentations from Black Hat 2006 Europe and Fed available, with audio archives forthcoming.

If you for some reason think that this is only for illegitimate root kiddies, think again. It can become an important part of your skillset, if you take the time.
