Tell us, why did you become a security expert?
Hmm, what does that mean "expert"? I just like to play and occasionally
try to find out if stuff can be broken. There was never any intention to

And what will you talk about?
I will have something high-level and something low-level.
The public presentation will be about "Buzzwords". The security
Angelo Dell'Aera (@angelodellaera) is currently Chief Executive Officer of the Honeynet Project. His interests are botnet tracking, honeyclient technologies and malware analysis.

Learn, using hands-on exercises, the techniques used in modern botnets to improve resilience and discussed strategies to take them down.
Over the past five years, The Honeynet Project has been had the pleasure of mentoring over 70 lucky bachelors, masters and PhD students from all over the world through Google Summer of Code (GSoC), Google's ongoing programme of support for international students working on free open source software (FOSS). Together we have worked on a large number of information security tools, including some that have gone on to be the leading examples of tools in their chosen field.
