The DIY Smoking Gun build findings and foibles - David Johnson

At the January DC401 meeting we discussed Gourmet Cooking Technology. A company by the name of PolyScience has pretty much cornered the market with their Anti-Griddle's and Sous Vide water ovens which over the past 5 years have made their way into kitchens everywhere. But for the average person, most of these are far to expensive to justify. 
So with a little know-how I've started building my own "The Smoking Gun" handheld smoker which normally retails from PolyScience for $99. Current total cost of this project build is about $15.

TL;DR: Are you a Gourmet Chef/Hacker? Do you like good food?
Well I'm going to show you this build and we're going to talk about improvements that can be made. The piece of equipment made by PolyScience is far from ideal so there's plenty of room for design modifications. Frankly, it's almost as if they forgot people were going to have to use it... but no matter!

I'll show you the improvements I'll be making to the project and invite all your input.


GitLab - Conrad Constantine and Lou Grossi

We'll go over the usage of the GitLab for DC401 and credentials and so on. 


Leap Motion - Group

We'll break out the Leap Motion controller for everyone to play with an demo the latest things we've learned along with the SDK. These will be available for purchase soon at BestBuy in a few months. Also ASUS is putting them in their laptops in 2014 for ultimate functionality.

Ladies and Gents it's almost February in the new year and I hope you're excited for the rest of 2012.

Tonights Talk:
"Building a Language Palace of Our Own"
by: CP Constantine


Abstract: Over the past decade we've watched the world of Modern Infosec rush to cobble itself together from the liturgy of its ancestral disciplines. But somewhere along the line we forgot that we were only borrowing terminology and concepts from other fields as a temporary measure; and stopped trying to build a lexicon that could be applied objectively and measured universally. Today's infosec teeters on an epistemological  Tower of Babel, where we try to make equations from natural language, squeeze measurable workflows out of systems designed for tech support, not incident response, scratch our heads trying to find the APT in the Bar Graph output of our SIEM's and most unforgivable of all, insist on forcing the word 'trust' into being considered a unit of measurement. So if you've ever tried to explain the different between a vulnerability and an exposure, facepalmed over being asked for a pie chart of your security risks, or envied your friends in real engineering fields, where the rules are defined by laws of physics, not marketing hyperbole, this may just be the talk for you.

---------------------------------


Part of tomorrows meeting I'd like to set aside to bring everyone up to date on what's been happening with the following topics discussed at last meeting:
-QuahogCon: I'd like to bring everyone up to date with what's been happening behind the scenes.
-Classes: we discussed this subject heavily last meeting. Now that we've had some time to think about it, let's bring it back to the table and give it a good run.
-Lab Server: I brought the servers donated by Chris D. (THANKS CHRIS!) over to AS220 and we'll be setting them up soon. The concensus was to set them up as a virtual system that allows us to do testing of our own projects in a safe environment. The question is; what should the architecture be?


Anyone with personal projects is highly encouraged to take a moment to talk about them. Let's hear what you're up to, let's discuss.
