The cast of your 2012 iOS Jailbreak Dream Team is going to be presenting at http://www.hitb.org this year!!
The HITBSecConf series, which takes place in Malaysia, Dubai, Amsterdam and Kuala Lumpur is one of the important events that is attended by security professionals from around the world.
The next conference takes place in Amsterdam from May 21st to May 25th. Here’s a snippet from HITBSecConf’s website:
The main aim of our conferences has always been to enable the dissemination, discussion and sharing of deep knowledge network security information. Our main focus is on new and groundbreaking attack and defense methods that have not been seen or discussed in public before. HITBSecConf events bring together a unique mix of security professionals, researchers, law enforcement and members of the hacker underground under one roof and our flagship event in Malaysia sees over 1000 attendees.
The event runs over a 4 day period with 2 days of intensive hands on training sessions followed by a two-day conference with either three or four concurrent tracks inclusive of a hands on lab session (HITB Labs) and 15 minute lightning talks (HITB SIGINT). The HITB Labs caters for only 50-100 attendees and these sessions are intensive, hands-on presentations that require audience interaction. The HITB SIGINT (Signal Intelligence/Interrupt) sessions on the other hand, are designed to provide a quick 15 minute overview for material and research that’s ‘up and coming’ – stuff that isn’t quite ready for the mainstream tracks of the conference but deserve a mention nonetheless.
Last month, members of iPhone Dev Team, Chronic Dev team, pod2G and planetbeing worked together to release the Absinthe jailbreak and Redsn0w CLI tool that allows users to perform an untethered jailbreak on iPhone 4S and iPad 2 (powered by Apple’s A5 processor).
So if you’re going to be in Amsterdam in May, don’t miss the chance of attending the conference and hearing it from the jailbreak Dream team on how they go about bring us the jailbreaks.
