Ms. Hennessey,

I would like you to show me how vote switching is impossible.
Show me on the Voting machines that have zero paper record. The following states use Direct Recording Electronic voting machines only (no paper output on what vote was recorded).
W/O any feedback, how can you guarantee that the vote that was placed is the one recorded on the hard drive?
I say 'prove it'
Should be simple right?
Not so fast, the DRE machines w/o a paper trail have no way to perform a vote audit
Prove to me the vote was tallied correctly
Furthermore, many of the states wipe the hard drives of those machines too soon, those states don't even allow for an audit of what was on the machine's hard drive. How are audits supposed to occur if the data have been erased?

I wonder if #DEFCON26 just leaves discoverable BlueTooth devices around in order to see how many people try to pair with them
Hi Marvin. #DEFCON26
(Explanation: this guy trust transmits a zillion random WiFi "beacons" pretending to be an access-point, in order to overflow monitor products like this with data)
At #DEFCON26, this other guy is doing a brute-force attempt at broadcasting a zillion access-point names, hoping that your phone/laptop is automatically configured to connect to them.

Thread: So, for my first time, I went to #BHUSA2018 (@BlackHatEvents) and #DEFCON26. I took my main phone and laptop, and on conference day 1 went completely non-anonymous with an Android platform security team T-shirt on. Let me tell you what happened. 1/n
For context, prior to the first main conference day, I did 2 days training with @colinoflynn on power analysis and clock glitching with #ChipWhisperer and learned a ton. This has shown me how easy such hardware attacks can be today. 2/n
For those 2 days, I brought an old loaner laptop to work with the provided #VirtualBox images (which is not supported on ChromeOS at this time). Yes, I did plug in @colinoflynn's USB stick into this loaner laptop (without configured accounts). 3/n

Anybody know how to get WiFi working while in SafeMode?
Current status: twiddling thumbs for next ~30 minutes. Which I wouldn’t mind if I were at home
