Session:Organizational Security for Human Rights Defenders in the Global SouthOrganizations defending human rights in what is referred to as the Global South -- what some prefer to call, the developing world -- have to deal with lack of resources in the face of intrusive surveillance and interception from governments. How can they protect their data, either at rest or in transit? How can they protect the information entrusted in them by their constituencies? This workshop is meant to come up with a practical manual that can be used by those organizations to learn how to secure their information so that they can stop worrying about that and get busy doing their primary job: protecting human rights.Village:AnarchistWorkshop

Village:Free Software Foundation EuropeHands-On
Session:Public Money Public CodeThe FSFE's latest campaign "Public money, public code" (PMPC) evolves around the demand targeted at public administrations to release software which is paid with taxpayers' money as Free Software. We believe that publicly funded software should be considered as public good and be freely available for everybody to reuse, study, share and improve. All public bodies should treat public funds carefully, ensuring the best possible value-for-money is obtained whenever public money is being spent or invested. Therefore, Free Software and re-use should be the norm, not only for the public sector to reduce the costly expenses for the acquisition of proprietary licences, but also for it to regain the control over its IT infrastructure. Free Software should be seen as public good, with value-added for every democratic society and its citizens, for co-operation among public authorities between regions and states. In my talk, I will give an overview and the status of our PMPC campaign, together with concrete action points on how everybody can engage in the campaign and support our goal.Village:Free Software Foundation EuropeTalk
Session:FPGAs for NewbiesThis workshop is intended for people with very few knowledge about FPGAs and VHDL.

The minimum age to participate is 11 years old.Village:ItalianEmbassy
Session:Monitoring Government Surveillance Capabilities by means of Transparency toolsThis project is a concept to exploit the availability of public procurement data sets, required by anticorruption transparency laws, to discover government surveillance capabilities.

We'll present early findings of a mixed-strategy approach, based on transparency and privacy activism, to uncover government capabilities analyzing procurement data of Ministry of Interior, Justice and Defense that are allowed by law to buy and use surveillance products and services.

This project will present manifold outcomes, such as the mapping of surveillance capabilities, expenditures, governmental project code names, providers and peculiar participants of surveillance related tenders.

The project will move forward exploiting the new FOIA laws by asking for:
- all invoices of each company that we found out selling surveillance technologies to the government
- all technical and economic offers of all the contractors related to surveillance technologies

In this way, we’ll try to shed light on the use of surveillance technologies providing a public database of knowledgeable information that can help to hold governments accountable for violations of human rights.
Session:New challengesPCs and Macs are changing. They are inheriting many features from the mobile devices. They use cloud accounts, SSDs, cryptography, always-on and connected-stand-by. These features are challenging and are changing extraction and analysis techniques. Now it’s not more possible to simply acquire an hard drive and then perform an off-line investigation. You have to mix and match different approaches.Village:ItalianEmbassy
Session:Join Mozilla: We Have CookiesJoin Mozilla: we have cookies! Vieni a scoprire cosa fa Mozilla per te e di come in Italia stia agendo nella creazione di club cittadini e campus universitari per promuovere la alfabetizzazione digitale, la programmazione e sicurezza su internet.Village:ItalianEmbassy
Session:Brief history of IoT (Internet of Things)While the IoT buzzword became common in the last four years, in june 2005 a French start-up began to sold the father of all Things of Internet, the Nabaztag. Being mainly an object of feeling, (despite being sold as “ Information console - portable media player”). Nabaztag will tell us this Internet tale of dreams and nightmares, describe the present and guess maybe a bit of futureVillage:ItalianEmbassy
Session:Regulating Law Enforcement uses of TrojansImplementing a Law to juridically, operationally and technically regulate the uses of Trojan in Italy The complexity of implementing a policy (law) and related operational and technical procedures to regulate the uses of Trojan by Law Enforcement in a way that protect civil rights while not preventing investigations from going on with the right balance of juridical/technical implementation.Village:ItalianEmbassy
Session:The digital martial artZanshin Tech is a digital martial art focusing on the digital aggression and teaching how to use mind and technology to avoid, solve or stop the conflict. In this quick overview we will introduce the discipline, describing the activities, the educational method and the structure of the art itself.Village:ItalianEmbassyTalk
Session:Modern Digital Forensics analysis, where to find evidencesIn the modern interconnected world it’s not simple to find where digital evidences are. They can be found on devices (both PCs and mobiles), on virtual machines, in the cloud. We’ll discuss about modern investigation techniques, OSINT, and how to correlate information from different sources to trace where the evidences could be found.Village:ItalianEmbassy
Session:Italians Do It BiggerWe’ll set a 3D printing workshop and non-stop activity with a 3mt tall printer. Workshop will teach to approach everyone to 3D printing with hemp fiber and polymer derived by corn seeds. Workshop and activities will be surrounded by a sensorial experience with essential oils prepared by a florentine artist joining design, art, open source technologyVillage:ItalianEmbassy
Session:Windows forensicsWindows 10 is, at the same, the old good Windows and a completely new operating system, capable to run on different architectures, from IoT to Virtual Reality systems, passing by convertibles, tablets and 2-in-1. Let’s have some fun together…Village:ItalianEmbassyWorkshop
Session:From NoT to IoT (or the opposite?)NoT (Network of Things) and IoT (Internet of Things) looks like overlapping definitions, the second following the first.

During this short course all the above will be discussed and a lot of complexity and loops will emerge. In fact IoT and NoT developed mostly in an independent way and still today are seen as separated things.

Is this true or a big and dangerous mistake?
Session:My own systemModern Personal Computer are migrating to an Always-on paradigm. We use cloud account to authenticate, Cloud drives and services, software houses want to collect more and more personal data. The simplest solution could be to choose an alternative operating system (like GNU/Linux or *BSD) and simply ignoring the world which is changing. Otherwise you can begin an hardening process and try to balance new Technologies and a resonable level of security. It's challenging but you can do it. Furthermore It's a way to build an antiforensics systemVillage:ItalianEmbassy
Session:Mobile WorldDigital forensics could be very challenging when you need to work with mobile devices. They are far more difficult to investigate than PCs or Macs, and, at the same time, they are connected with many different cloud services. We’ll talk about new extraction and analysis programs, as well as cloud technologiesVillage:ItalianEmbassy
