Introduction to GEOINT
02-11, 09:30–13:00 (UTC), Workshops - Glamorgan Suite

GEOINT is a component of OSINT where a physical location is discovered from clues in media, from still photographs to videos and even sound. The practice requires a selection of skills and knowledge about resources which may be as diverse as power grids, architecture and physics. A successful identification of a location may seem to be almost magical and, at the same time, scary.

A workshop describing the techniques to identify important parts of an image or video that could be used to locate it (and also when location may not be possible). It will descend into the geekery of sites that can identify various aspects of an image.

It is designed to be fully interactive. It will demonstrate the art of locating through examples and practice. Common search engines and Internet resources will be used to aid in this.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their own images with them so that they can be used in the workshop to practice their own skills. They are also encouraged to share databases or knowledge that other attendees may not know about.

Is too boring for a biography.

For 15 years, Tony's job has been either trying to break technology or defend it from attack. This he has done everywhere from banks to mass transport systems. He specialises in open source intelligence and recon, providing intelligence and understanding, helping clients understand their exposure and providing insight and recon for red and purple teams. He also speaks the world over at technology and cybersecurity events about how anything from children's toys to cars, planes and ships can be hacked. He has spoken at PCI events in Europe and Asia, at the ISC2 Congress, ISACA CSX Europe, SANS Awareness Conference, WIRED Smarter, technical conferences such as 44Con and BSides. Most notably, he has spoken to US Congress and the European Central Bank about how the underlying digital theories and systems which modern life relies on, are vulnerable to attack.
