Future Ada, a local organization in the Electronic Frontier Alliance, (not EFF) will host this event:

Vehicle-Based Surveillance Workshop

From the Organizers:

This Future Ada workshop will go over offensive and defensive techniques related to vehicle-based surveillance and information gathering

If you’ve ever wondered how to look for GPS tracking devices on a vehicle, or would like to learn more about the type of information which could be gathered from one, this workshop is for you.

This workshop will explore different techniques used by malicious actors to obtain vehicle-related information. This includes:

- Tracking of a vehicle with a GPS device

- Using apps and services such as OnStar to track vehicles

- Discovering publicly-available information related to vehicles

Each of the offensive techniques demonstrated will be accompanied by counter-measures to help attendees better understand the steps they can take to defend themselves against these types of attacks.

Sunday, July 19
1:00pm - 2:30pm (PDT)
