Robert McLay: Vulnerable VMs

Thursday, 4 September, 2014 - 20:30

This month, security professional Rab McLay will be giving a talk on COMPUTER HACKING...

... or rather, how to learn and perform computer security testing legally using purpose-built virtual machines, with a live demo. Rab's talks have proven very popular both for the uninitiated and the seasoned pro, so be sure to catch a seat :-)

To follow along, you'll want to have used a command line a couple times before, and some basics about what a computer network is.

The talk starts at 19:30 and will go on til 21:00

A short introduction to DRBD

Thursday, 3 March, 2011 - 19:30

Speaker: Claudio Calvelli

DRBD (Distributed Replicated Block Device) can be described as a "network RAID-1" and allows data to be automatically distributed across servers in such a way that if one fails the data can be recovered from the other.

I will give a short and not-really-technical introduction with a demonstration of what it can do using two laptops (or more, if I can borrow a few laptops).

Thursday, 3 February, 2011 - 19:30

Speaker: Marco Donnarumma

Creativity, hacktive behaviours, self-taught quasi-programming and new media openness.

These keywords quite well summarize the personal artistic research I'll be presenting at Edlug. From a concept to its practical realization, an artistic work is always a mixture of theories and technical skills and often the hardest task is to keep the work enough close to the original idea which it was generated from.
