Juice Jacking 101 (What I Learned, What You Should Know)

Presented at ToorCon San Diego 13 (2011), Oct. 8, 2011, 6 p.m. (50 minutes)

The concept originated on July 4th, and within a month (with some help) the 'malicious' kiosk was designed and deployed in the most untrusted environment we could find, DefCon. The discussion will go over basics of the build, information learned during the deployment of the "juice jacker" and goal of the project. It may be rumored that we've designed a better kiosk, that is far more malicious. I will bring it on stage with me to give a demo - or leave it in the conference hall (with permission.)
