Here’s my quick (and belated) take on the Black Hat 2015 sessions I’ve attended. This year’s schedule offered a rich selection of Machine Learning related content, and it is refreshing to see that it is finally becoming a mainstream tool in the security community.
It goes without saying that all opinions are mine and not the ones of my employer. If I’m misjudging your session, then feel free to reach out—my opinion is formed based on data available, and it is of course always a challenge to cramp months of research results into an hour-long session. (If you are still disgruntled, take comfort in the fact that you attended the Speaker Party while I did not.)
Where available I have linked slide decks, whitepapers, or additional resources. Note that in some cases the slides presented at the event differed and have been updated (my remarks are applying to the version presented at the event unless noted otherwise).
