Andrew Mcelroy will be presenting:

The Challenges VPNs Face Today And Into The Decade Ahead

The challenges and threats are growing for VPN operators and their users starting with 50% hostile foreign country ownership of the entire consumer VPN market, followed by slow legacy protocols, a surprising amount of misconfiguration, the NSA’s announcement of TLS Break and Inspect risks in December 2019, and the emergence of viable Universal Gate Quantum Computers in the next 5 years. Thankfully, Post-Quantum Cryptography aka PQC will become mainstream in the next few years as NIST is in round 3 (finalist round) with 6 candidates and 6 alternates (three PKE/KEM and three digital signatures).

Andrew is a third-generation programmer who has been writing software for over 20 years. He is a prior president of the Nashville Linux Users Group and board member of Nashville 2600, founded two computer vision companies, a mobile app training company, and wrote part of the Dari Motion Health Platform which achieved FDA 510(k) clearance in 2018.
He is most well-known for version 2 of TryRuby.org. He is an inventor of three patents. Two are assigned to Punchh Inc and one (regarding decoy routing) is assigned to his current company AmbitVPN.com. Whenever he has a sliver of free time you can find him working on a software defined radio using call sign KK4HXE.


We will have time after the presentation for people to to share what they are working on. Your project doesn’t have to be complete and slides are not required (like show-n-tell).


We will be running the NetKotH CTF.

If you would like to play along in the CTF follow these instructions (http://koth.userserviceable.com/netkoth.html) and hack away with your favorite tools such as Kali Linux, Parrot Linux, or ArchStrike Linux.
