Attending HITCON and COSCUP in Taipei
It is my pleasure to attend the HITCON 2013 and COSCUP 2013 conferences in July/August this year. They are both in Taipei. HITCON is a hacker/security event, while COSCUP is a pure Free/Open Source Software conference.
At both events I will be speaking at the growing list of GSM related tools that are available these days, like OpenBSC, OsmcoomBB, SIMtrace, OsmoSGSN, OsmoBTS, OsmoSDR, etc. As they are both FOSS projects and useful in a security context, this fits well within the scope of both events.
Given that I'm going to be back to Taiwan, I'm looking very much forward to meeting old friends and former colleagues from my Openmoko days in Taipei. God, do I miss those days. While terribly stressful, they still are the most exciting days of my career so far.
And yes, I'm also going to use the opportunity for a continuation of my motorbike riding in this beautiful country.
