Day 3

Who wouldn't want to pull an 18-hour day at 36c3? With all the excitement, you don't want to miss out.

Life at CCC

skipped a few talks for dinner, still don't know if it was a good idea

1 beer + 2 cocktails over a long time, I'm fine

Dancing: I can really only do a bad imitation of it

5am? yeah sure.

Talks

good ones i highlighted

A systematic evaluation of OpenBSD's mitigations

High-assurance crypto software

Yeeaahhhh Software is buggy, who would've thought

Boot2root

Yep black box proprietary things have lots of bugs.

Hacking (with) a TPM

I have ideas so TPM is usable, mostly, probably. I need to implement this

Linux on Open Source Hardware with Open Source chip design

Sighhh spend $1000 now or wait maybe a year for sub $100 RISCV board
