ShmooCon manpurse

I was at ShmooCon last weekend. I thought their choice of free bags was interesting. I was a little disappointed that I didn’t see anyone carrying it like a clutch.

There were a handful of interesting talks. A common theme was using statistical analysis to find out what’s actually interest in a large block of data. I think we’ll see even more of this in the future. The web is growing every day and we’re going to need tools to plow through all of that data. Sergey Bratus gave a well received talk on the Kerf project. One use is telling you what the statistically interesting packets are in a long packet trace instead of you guessing what’s there with filters. (I’ve known Sergey for a couple years, but never knew what he was working on)
