PasswordsCon 14

2014-08-13 10:28:37 -0400

If we've taken a little bit longer than usual to get back to you in the last week, it's because we had the great pleasure of attending PasswordsCon 14 in Las Vegas (and got into BSidesLV as well). Stephen and I presented "Enhancing Password Based Key Derivation Techniques" which focuses on two experimental developments in SQLCipher: adaptive key derivation and using hardware tokens. Billy presented "Password Generators & Extended Character Set Passwords," which was mostly an argument that it's time we started generating and using Unicode passwords.

There's an engaging sense of community at both of these conferences, and we had some really fun and interesting conversations with both the attendees and organizers. We would like to thank both Per Thorsheim and Jeremi Gosney, there is a lot of work involved in putting on a conference like this and they did an excellent job. Please find the slides to our presentations below, and don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or comments.
