The Netzwerk Recherche Annual Conference 2010 in Hamburg at the NDR is over and it was a great event. Although the hottest topic was the outside temperature of over 36°C, more than 800 people signed in for the event, many more than expected.
We were invited to give a workshop about advanced technical investigation techniques for the attending journalists, which turned out to be quite a success. We tried to cover the topic not only from a journalist’s view, but also from an attacker’s perspective (lacking the legal and ethical constraints a journalist should have), because we felt it is important to show to people not only what they can do, but what possibilities the other side has, too.
The slides, including a link collection, can be downloaded from our website under Publications.
Thanks to the organisers for the event. We met many interesting people and generally had a very positive feedback to our workshop. We hope to do another one next year!
Update: Heise has an article where a large part is about our workshop: Netzwerk Recherche: Pentestereien für Journalisten
