Event description

Description

Hey hey Speckers! We're back after a long Summer break with yet another incredible event... this time titled "Cyber intelligence"!
Be sure not to miss this event - also because it'll be held inside a real tunnel (Gallerie Piedicastello)! Below our speakers:


1. FEDERICO SCRINZI
"Exploring Hardware Security"

Federico Scrinzi

ABSTRACT: Studying and breaking secure hardware is not something that only state-sponsored attackers or highly-funded research groups can perform. Tools are becoming more accessible and you can start learning hardware security at home. Hardware hacking is perceived as black magic or something not important: let's change this misconception, learn about new classes of attacks and how to design secure hardware.

BIO: Federico is passionate about IT security and a CTF player with team Tasteless. He is from Trentino, an alumnus of UniTN and EIT Digital, and currently works as Site Reliability Engineer at Google in Munich. Sometimes you can find him playing badly on the ukulele, trying to pronounce Streichholzschachtel, or baking sourdough bread.


2. LUIGI GUBELLO
"Russian propaganda: how it works"

Luigi Gubello

ABSTRACT: The majority of experts agree that 2016 US elections were targeted by IRA (Internet Research Agency), a Russian pro-government company that used the social networks to interfere with the elections. Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube have become useful tools for Russian propaganda to sway the voters. In October 2018, Twitter released a big dataset containing all the tweets - over 9 million - shared by the Russian trolls. The analysed data show how Internet Research Agency has carefully developed its propaganda. This talk wants to illustrate how Russian propaganda on Twitter has worked.

BIO: My name is Luigi Gubello, but on Twitter I am better known as @evaristegal0is. My name has become public within the case #Hack5Stelle. In my free time I like writing Python code, especially to analyse Twitter data, and I try to find bugs and vulnerabilities in the bug bounty programs: it's fun to look for mistakes in big companies' products. Writing about me is really not my thing, I have issues with "About me" pages.
