Pumpcon Review

Luke Nelson

Nov 04, 1995


We'll start with a description of what a "Con" is, followed by an overview of what "PumpCon" is and is all about. This will include a general summary of what went on at this year's event.
Next, I'll cover some specific topics that were discussed at PumpCon. I'll talk about holes in the S/KEY system developed by Bellcore. The holes were found by a member of the Lopht group (Mudge). I have his paper on the subject.

I will also talk about the arrest of BernieS, in real life known as Ed Cummings. He was arrested under a new law, and kept in prison for 7 months. Basically the Secret Service had it in for him, I'll explain why.

From these, we'll see where conversation leads us.

Unless otherwise noted, the security seminar is held on Wednesdays at 4:30P.M. STEW G52 (Suite 050B), West Lafayette Campus. More information...
