Research

Hacker Summer Camp

By Rich

In the latest Firestarter, Rich, Mike, and Adrian discuss the latest controversial research to hit the news from HOPE and Black Hat. We start with a presentation by Jonathan Zdziarski on data recoverable using forensics on iOS. While technically accurate, we think the intent he ascribes intent to Apple shows a deeply flawed analysis. We then discuss a talk removed from Black Hat on de-anonymizing Tor. In this case it seems the researchers didn’t really understand the legal environment around them. Both cases are examples of great research gone a little awry.

And Rich talks about a snowball fight with a herd of elk. These things happen.
