Date: Wed, 17 Oct 2012 08:04:36 +0400 From: Solar Designer <solar@...nwall.com> To: announce@...ts.openwall.com, john-users@...ts.openwall.com Subject: Passwords^12 (December 3-5, Oslo) Hi, Simon Marechal (aka Bartavelle), a long-time contributor to John the Ripper -jumbo, is going to speak at Passwords^12 in Oslo, Norway. This is a single-track three-day event (December 3-5, 2012) "focusing ONLY on passwords & PIN codes in all forms, shapes and sizes". Other speakers include Joan Daemen (one of the authors of both AES and SHA-3), Colin Percival (the author of scrypt and Tarsnap, and FreeBSD Security Officer Emeritus), atom (the author of hashcat), and Bitweasil (the author of Cryptohaze Multiforcer). Of course, this list is vastly incomplete. Here's the conference program: http://securitynirvana.blogspot.no/p/passwords12-practical-info.html On day 2, Simon is going to speak on probabilistic candidate password generators, explaining and improving upon JtR's current Markov mode, which Simon is the author of. On day 3, Simon will present a revision of my PHDays talk on the history of password hashing, updated to reflect new developments of the second half of 2012. Given the selection of speakers and topics, I think it's safe to say that Passwords^12 is going to be great. Do attend it if you can. Alexander
