Frank's Sketchbook Entry of the Day
| A Key Keynote
August 10, 2014
This was the second keynote address of DFRWS 2014 in Denver, CO. The
speaker gave some interesting demonstrations of ways to get into the guts
of storage devices (like iPods and USB drives), as well as a PDF file that
could boot into Linux. Basically, digital forensics might need a large
dose of humility, as there is a lot of stuff that most practitioners
don't know or wouldn't be able to detect. He was a good speaker, and also
a white boy with frighteningly long dreadlocks. This was the only sketch I
made at the conference and by far the most interesting talk.
The iPod drone attacking seemed appropriate given the content of the talk.
This was a photo from my camera (jpeg mode) of the sketch I drew, hence
the color and texture in the paper.
I tend to doodle. Over the years, I've accumulated lots of random
sketches of things, sometimes people, sometimes things, and sometimes
just abstract lines. The basic idea on these pages is for me to slowly
scan in highlights from my collection of random quick doodles. I also
am providing a place where I can explain what it is or what motivated
it or perhaps some reason why I'm not to blame. With the sketches of
people, their name may be hand-written, or there might be a talk title
provided, but I will tend to avoid providing full names. I don't mind
if people know who they are, I just don't want them coming up on search
engine hits, since that might be a bit rude.
Note that the images are PNGs with transparency. Mozilla and Firefox
properly render them. Safari too, I think. Internet Exporer doesn't.
I don't care.
If you want to see the image without the annoying blue-lined background
image, just click on the image.
