About conference

It was the morning of 18 May, when several hundred CONFidence participants gathered before entering the Kijów.Centrum cinema. Bruce Schneier (one of the most famous American cryptographers) was just about to speak. His lecture "Reconceptualizing Security", was a huge success and the lecture room was packed. Joanna Rutkowska presented "Thoughts about Trusted Computing", sharing the latest results of her research on the security of desktops. Eddie Schwartz in "Understanding Social Networking ..." introduced security issues related to social networking sites. For the rest of the day, we had several parallel sessions of interesting lectures - everyone could choose something for themselves - as well as Lighting Talks - extremely attractive 5-minute presentations that became the traditional point of our conferences.

The second day of the conference brought even more stellar lectures - this time performed by Jacob Appelbaum from Tor Project and Google-known Tavis Ormandy. CONFidence No. 5 could also boast of others except for a strong cast of points. For the first time, we have offered Hackers' Squad - two hostels rented to our guests. It became a kind of tradition, and actually every year our guests go where, as the legend says, "hacking and beer never ends." We also organized the Hackers' Movie Night and the CONFidence Security Evangelist competition in which we chose the best hacker, journalist and politician who rendered merit to the community, as well as the most professional blogs and services in Polish and English.

Those were two amazing days, filled not only with great lectures, but also hacking, acquiring new skills at workshops, hot discussions in the corridors and parties.
