This tutorial explores new concepts in web security. After a solid grounding in well-known exploits, I'll demonstrate how traditional exploits are being combined together and with other technologies to launch sophisticated attacks that penetrate firewalls, target users, and spread like worms. I'll then discuss some ideas for the future to help you provide a better, more secure user experience. Read more.

This is a talk about the Arduino open source physical computing platform; a cheap, useful, fun micro-controller ... and it's loads of fun, even if you break into a cold sweat at the thought of picking up a soldering iron.
