The Eleventh HOPE (2016): "TSA Keys Leak: Government Backdoors and the Dangers of Security Theater" (Download)
Saturday, July 23, 2016: 11:00 pm (Lamarr): In late 2015, hackers revealed yet another threat to American privacy, but this time it hit far closer to home than credit cards and Social Security numbers. The master keys the TSA uses to inspect all luggage being placed on an airplane were now available to anyone with a 3D printer! Three of the primary contributors to the leak and the subsequent reproduction of those keys will discuss their trials and tribulations during the event, including why government backdoors like key escrow are a really bad idea, the preposterousness of 3D printing keys in the first place, how the media completely missed the point of the entire operation, and how journalism doesn’t actually even exist anymore. This will be a comprehensive discussion of literally every aspect of the TSA keys leak from top to bottom, including the release of previously undisclosed research. No talk of this magnitude has been given at any con on this topic! Notice: This talk will include the first public release of a brand new master key!
