CanSecWest was pretty good this year. My favorite talks were (no order): Desktop Insecurity - Ilja van Sprundel & Shane "K2" Macaulay, Smart TV Security - SeungJin Lee, Godel's Gourd - Fuzzing for Logic Issues - Mike "dd" Eddington, and Reflecting on Reflection - Exploiting Reflection Vulnerabilities in Managed Languages - James Forshaw. I can't wait to get the slides.
Call for Papers:
Workshop on Offensive Technologies (WOOT) August, Washington D.C., academic but targeting people who would normally speak at Black Hat/CanSecWest/etc.
SummerCon in June, New York City
BeaCon local mini con in Boston
I totally missed Black Hat Europe, it had some interesting talks: The M2M Risk Assessment Guide, A Cyber Fast Track Project - Don A. Bailey, Practical Attacks Against MDM Solutions - Daniel Brodie + Michael Shaulov, Off Grid Communications With Android- Meshing The Mobile World - Josh Thomas + Jeff Robble, Next Generation Mobile Rootkits - Thomas Roth.
An interesting looking paper from TROOPERS13 UI Redressing Attacks on Android Devices (apparently it was released at Black Hat Abu Dhabi last year).
