When: July 15th (3rd Sundays), 11:00am-~4:00pm
Where: Black Lodge Research
Who: (Ben, Dune, Morgan, Spooney, and DC206 community)

Locksport begins at 11a, speaker(s) at 1p, BBQ after presentation is over.


Dune will be running a Locksport event, starting at 11:00 until 1:00.


Keeping it Local: Home automation for the security-minded hacker

We’ll talk about low-cost and security-friendly solutions for running
your own home automation system, using off the shelf parts and a broadly
supported open source software stack. Topics will include running your
own server, lighting choices, and quick automation tasks that we’ve
found improved our quality of life with only a little work.


Ben is a cycling enthusiast and software engineer who likes to play with
electronics when he gets the chance.

Morgan is a student and hacker with a soft spot for very loud keyboards.

[In case the speaker has some last-minute issue and cannot attend, the
backup presentation will be Blibbet, with a draft version of a new talk
with a checklist of guidance for UEFI firmware DFIR defenders, and demos
of FWAudit (Firmware Audit), a new open source firmware security tool.]


This month the chef will be Spooney.

We’re planning hamburgers and brats. Please feel free to bring a
side-dish, or some additional meat.
We’re not critically low at the moment, but the fridge always needs
restocking with decent beers and hard ciders.
Vegetarians, please bring something you can eat: the salad — and for
the most part the fake tofu/etc meats — we’ve brought in recent months
has been ignored.
