COMMSEC: It’s Friday Evening Professor Moriarty


Has it ever happened to you on a Friday afternoon, just before closing your laptop, tidying your desk before a long weekend? A weekend that indeed looks now very long in perspective? A server disappeared! A network device that blinks mysteriously and frantically like a Christmas tree. No clues yet to be found? Feeling like calling Watson? Call no one but become Sherlock himself to uncover the truth!

This session will reveal some of Moriarty’s machinations and some cyber forensics techniques you can use to identify all the clues left over and finally solve the puzzle quickly (before your weekend runs over). Some of the tools of deduction will include:

– remotely pulling the puppet strings

– unlocking the secrets of a locked box

– anticipating the enemy’s first move

– set a decoy to expose the stratagem
