Don't Get Cracked on Hostile WiFi

That was the title of my talk today at Ohio Linux Fest. I told everybody I'd put my slides up here, so:

I think there should also be a video appearing on the OLF website some time soon. I'm sorry, I know I was speaking a bit fast. I pretty much always talk fast.

Maco, I'm surprised at you.

So much for "She takes every opportunity to promote open formats".

No DjVu? (death to PDF!)

Hello! Glad I was able to see your presentation at Linuxfest. My friends and I really liked it :)

Hi Mackenzie, I saw your talk at the OLF yesterday, actually I missed the first 5 minutes or so. Your right, you do talk fast, so missing the first five or so means I might have missed a lot :) I am glad you posted your slides, I really wanted to take a look at what you had to say. You might be interested to know, I googled your name to find your blog. Thanks for the keynote and posting your info on your web log. Take care and good luck on your endeavors.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that I too enjoyed the presentation, that is why I searched your name in hopes of getting a copy of your slides. So again, Thanks!

Yeah, sorry about the fast talking. There's the combination of my usual fast-talking along with it being my first talk.

Well, I hope you do more talks. Maybe I'll see you at the 2009 OLF. Security has always been an interest of mine. I added your blog to be followed in my blog acct. I was looking at your slides, I did miss some stuff, like about UFW which I ditched a while ago anyway. I use FWBuilder as a start for iptables at home on my desktop, and when/if I use my laptop publicly I would just reinstall anyway. I use puppy linux on that old thing and it's a breeze to reinstall, and kinda hard to write anything too. One day that will change when I get a new laptop and get out more :) But I still often advise others as best as I can, they usually use windows, which is almost hopeless. I also like your recommendation on using dd-wrt at home, I used to use that before I started using old pc's and firewall distros (currently Smoothwall). Now I use an old wireless router converted to an AP, and it's unplugged unless used, which is rare. It also pipes in through the DMZ NIC for added comfort.

Sorry I missed your presentation; I had gone to the Ubuntu BoF to discuss participation and bugs. Thanks for putting your slides up!

ffm:
I never heard of DjVu.
And PDF is standard that has, as far as I am aware, all the necessary information available to the public.

Thank you for your presentation Mackenzie and thank you for posting your presentation. Great talk and material. This was my first Ohio Linux Fest and enjoyed all the talks I heard.
