Topic Details:

Topic #1 Embedded Operating Systems, presented by Ron Mays
This presentation mirrors a case involving an Internet of Things (IoT) device that Mr. Mays worked. Items covered include:
A brief history of threats affecting IoT devices.
Tools and techniques for dealing with Embedded OSs
Future needs. This presentation is organic and will continue to evolve.

Topic #2 Manually parsing Twitter "binary plist" type files for Twitter Direct Messages presented by Kristen Scott
The goals of this presentation are to review of the data to identify what formatting language is being utilized, demonstrate how to convert the encoded values, use the decoded values to chain the data presented in attribute-value pairs and data arrays, explain the relationship between the attribute "keys" and the value "objects", and identify what user data is stored. The challenge to data stored within this file format is that the "objects" are unordered and the "key" value name maybe located hundreds of lines of text away from the object it describes. Areas covered include: 

Review of the formatting of the Twitter plist
Linking the data within the plist
User Data
