This workshop will be given 2 times (both identical):

   Day 3: Sunday, 24-July-2022, 4:30pm - 6:00pm, Workshop B (D'Angelo 306)

NOTE: You do NOT need to register to take this workshop -- please show up early to ensure a seat at Workshop B (D'Angelo 306).


HOPE often attracts attendees who may be new to the hacking space — people who learned of the conference through the Off The Hook radio show, youth who are keen to get into this space, artists, journalists, activists, and others who see their work increasingly overlapping with hacking. There's a lot newcomers may have missed about hacking techniques over the years! This workshop is for those newcomers, to bring them up to speed about some very fundamental habits of thought in the hacking community. In this session Gus will get attendees engaged in hands-on exercises developed in the engineering and hacking communities for finding vulnerabilities. To demonstrate counterintuitive strategies beyond code, we follow this up with examples of past hacking, including social engineering and voting machine testing. Wrap-up discussion explores how these activities change what we think, feel, and see, and what we can do with the systems around us.
