Welcome to February! I trust you're excited about CodeCon in March and you've registered. Here's what we've got on this month:

When: Thursday, February 20th, 18:00 for an 18:30 start
Where: Upstairs, Hotel Soho, 124 Davey St, Hobart. (Map)

Agenda:

  • 18:00 - early mingle, chin wagging, etc
  • 18:30 - Question and answer session, News of Note, LPI Quiz.
  • 19:00 - Michael Cordover - dm-crypt best practices, or how to keep medium level schmucks out of your data

    If the attacker has physical access to your box then itís no longer your box - but that doesnít mean the attacker gets access to your data. This talk will explain how to set up full-disk encryption but keep your bootloader and key on a USB, keeping you safe from even the smartest attacker. Unfortunately these techniques won't work against the NSA, but we'll have a brief look at the final steps required to get to that point.
  • 20:00 - Meeting end. Dinner and drinks are available at the venue after the meeting.
