I know that somebody will be pissed and mad at me right now, but who gives a fuck :). Here is the first batch of videos of 47 sessions and panels (of a total of 122), from the world largest hacker conference, DefCon 15, which was held on August 3 – 5, 2007 at the Rivera Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

All videos together is a set of 10 DVD-ROMs!!! full of movie files. Bear with me while I am working on getting the rest of the videos up on-line. It’s a pain in the ass and a lot of tedious work.

The Session Videos – Batch I

The videos are sold commercially for several hundred dollars, but who has that amount of money flying around, right? Okay, I paid the money. So you are welcome.

And anyway, isn’t DefCon not about making exploits and scams public? I make them public, alright? Not the way some might have planned, but that is not my problem. I did not get the “Black Hat” sessions and have now second thoughts about it. They cost much less if you ordered it on-site. Damn, I hope somebody else will put them up on the Internet.

Okay, the first batch includes the following sessions, which are IMO the most interesting ones.

  1. T536 – The Edge of Forever – Making Computer History by Jason Scott from who also did the documentary BBS – The Documentary, which is also available on-line at Google Video.

I was writing about one particular session already twice here at my blog, here and the second time here.

It’s the session with Brendan O’Connor titled “Greater than 1: Defeating “Strong” Authentication in Web Applications”. If you did not believe me, watch it with your own eyes and hear it with your own ears.

Here is the video of that session. There is unfortunately no video recording of the discussion that happened afterwards in a different room, but I think that the session will be enough to open some people’s eyes.

Got it? Gee….

Update: Get the DefCon 15 Session Videos Batch II remaining sessions from track one.

Update II: Get the DefCon 15 Session Videos Batch III remaining sessions from track two and three and …
DefCon 15 Session Videos Batch IV (final batch) remaining sessions from track four and five.

Enjoy the videos! Cheers!
Carsten aka Roy/SAC

    keep’em coming Carsten!!

    i linked to your article on my site as well, big ups and much respect.

  5. I guess I will create smaller batches then, to be able to release stuff sooner, rather than waiting to be able to put all the stuff up and post it all at once.

    It’s a bitch and takes a while. I probably make it 5 more batches to cover the missing sessions and panels, one for each of the 5 tracks

  6. Oh, there will be a bonus DVD. There a re a large number of Audi files.

    I have them up on for now, but I can only keep files there temporarily for 30 days. I have to find a better place for those.

    Oh, here is another goodie :).

    The DefCon CD’s from DefCon 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15. Cheers!

    Hello man,
    That was really a great move, but why about to uploading at Google? well, i just downloaded some, but as the other ones, the downloading process just gets intercepted and no choice to resume them.

    If it’s okay for you, i can provide a huge amount of spaces to upload the videos there, and people could access/download them directly.


  8. Hey, thanks for that offer, but there are already arrangements made to put all 10 DVDs up on a server for direct dowload access.

    This will take a few weeks though and I will complete the upload to Google Video, because there is not that much left anymore and some people prefer to watch individual sessions online.

    I just downloaded the 6+ GIGs of session videos from DefCon 13 (2005) and I don’t know if many people would actually do that. Thanks again for the offer and stay tuned for updates on that.

    still waiting on the ddl site of the videos!!! thx!

  10. Hi Imagina,

    me too. I sent one physical copy to somebody and another one electronically.

    None of the guys did put all ISOs up yet as they promissed. One of them put 6 of the 10 isos up, which you can access here.

    Nobody is reliable anymore nowadays. I am not active in the scene anymore and thus have no access to underground FTP sites either. I would pack it up as a full release and let things go their natural way.. but .. mmh.

    Sorry for the delay, but it is not entirely up to me.

  11. imagina says:

    Hey Carsten!
    After a month no sign of the other 4 ISO’s :(
    Please contact me because i believe that we can arrange a way of sharing all the dvd’s.


  12. imagina says:

    Hey Carsten
    Forget about my previous post. I had a bookmark direct to this page and after posting i saw the other dvd’s on the frontpage! :)


  13. Yep, no problem. I explained the reasons for the delay. How goes the saying? “If you want to be sure that something gets done, do it yourself.” :)
