Thank you!  Security BSides Las Vegas was an amazing event.  Thanks to the sponsors, volunteers, speakers and participants.


Yes, we're already thinking about next year- and all the BSides events that will happen in the upcoming year.



When: July 28-29, 2010


Where: http://www.2810vegasestate.com/  (2810 East Quail Ave., Las Vegas, NV, 89120)



We are putting a lot of heart 'n' soul into this one to make it THE EVENT to be at, *especially* if you can't afford Blackhat, and plan to be in town for Defcon. Or... if you are just gonna come out to LV to experience the BSides magic. We need sponsors, wranglers, handlers, speakers, nuts, looneys, the sane, and those of you that are somewhere in-between to all throw in a hand.


Thanks to the awesomeness of our newest Sponsor, VerSprite, we have secured an absolutely AMAZING location for this year's BSidesLV. (see link above) It most certainly will be the red carpet event of the security year.

Don't forget your bathing suit.

Thanks to everyone that submitted a talk. If you didn't get chosen, don't fret! We had an overwhelming number of great talks, too many to accept them all.  We're planning on having a room for lightning talks and free-forum discussions, as well, so even if you aren't on the "official" schedule, there will still plenty of opportunity to present at BSidesLV and make yourself heard.


Still interested in presenting at BSidesLV, but didn't make the CFP deadline? Consider a lightning talk or free-form discussion on one of the following topics:


- General system exploitation techniques, vuln-dev and shellcoding

- Web application hacking

- Mobile exploitation

- Breach cases and analysis

- Reverse engineering

- Rootkits

- Wireless security

- Hardware hacking

- RFID, SmartCard, Auth Tech exploitation

- Creative Compliance and/or PitFalls

- Software Security and Code Analysis

- Offensive Security (targeted system attacks like Scada, chipsets, od OS.. etc)

- Crypto

- Lockpicking, trashing and urban exploration

- Red Team Testing

- Corporate Intelligence / Industrial Espionage

- Something so Heavy... No one is ready... cept for the BSiders...

- And anything else you can/want to make a case for..... bring your A-Game and an uncensored speech for all to learn/interact with







We are looking for sponsors that are ready to make a HUGE impact on the security world.

Security Volunteers


Tentative Schedule is up (subject to change w/o notice)! If you notice a conflict, please email banasidhe(at)gmail(dot)com ASAP, so that we can accommodate you as best as possible. For those of you who volunteered for 2 or more shifts, we'll have special t-shirts available for you to wear during your shifts at BSidesLV (and keep, of course!). This is as much of a thank you for your time and effort, as it is a system for allowing attendees to identify those of us that are there to help them with any given situation that may arise. So we need to stress that you not wear your volunteer t-shirt at the event when you're not on-duty. FYI: We have rented a small # of radios for the event. If you have your own UHF radio(s), feel free to bring them. We'll have the frequency list available for programming purposes.

Video Volunteers


Please add yourself to the schedule if you are willing to sit at the back of a session and babysit a video camera. It doesn't entail much beyond swapping tapes before things start, keeping an eye on the stream, and possibly interacting with the remote viewers over the chat channel.

I am local to Vegas, and have plenty of time to volunteer where needed. Point me in a direction and I'll start running.

Be careful what you ask for! We will take you up on that!! Thank you for offering!

Marisa Fagan said

at 11:19 pm on Mar 20, 2010

I'm super excited already!!

I am very interested in approaching a hotel near the venue for a group rate. Where should we start that interested persons head count?

Loooooove Bsides!

So excited too!

Bsides sounds like so much love. I've invited all the people I know who are going for DEFCON.

Steven McGrath said

at 1:46 pm on Jun 12, 2010

Ok, all thats needed is a couple of random DJs and this will look like an upper-class AP Defcon :-p

Marisa Fagan said

at 4:38 pm on Jun 14, 2010

Just mens sizes on the t-shirts, right?

Admin said

at 5:03 pm on Jun 14, 2010

Marisa, everyone should enter their size and the person making the shirt order can order women's shirts for those who list their size.

I am arriving on Tuesday afternoon and will be renting a car. If you need help transporting people and/or things, I'll be glad to help.

Jerel said

I have child bearing hips, not sure if that constitutes a woman's size :P

This is mostly for Jason Ross, are the tshirts handled? If not... I am volunteering.

Does the projector not being crossed out mean you need a projector? I have one but will not be arriving until 9:30am (@ airport) wednesday

Jack Daniel said

at 2:43 pm on Jul 22, 2010

dmz- thanks for the offer, but we are good on projectors. I'll update the list.

at 4:27 pm on Jul 22, 2010

Where do I sign up for some of those sexy t-shirts?

Jason Ross said

at 9:03 pm on Jul 25, 2010

@versprite: there's no sign up required/provided. we ordered a total of 300 varying sizes (some women's, some men's). they'll be sold first come/first serve. since the registration is now quite a bit over 300 though, getting there sooner is better =)

Not being allowed to comment on the schedule page: Is it just me being blind, or is there a description down the page of Wayne Huang's Drivesploit presentation that's doesn't show up in the schedule roster?

Jack Daniel said

at 5:43 pm on Jul 27, 2010

Hi David- Wayne's talk was pulled, he is unable to give it at BSides.

You don't have permission to comment on this page.
