Talk Title: TLS = Privacy. What?

Talk Description: As a sometime provoking countermeasure to the hysteria of encrypting everything in the network independent on information security values this talk goes back from alchemy to solid facts and provides: what is an adversary able to see while spotting the TLS encrypted networking traffic? How much does this concern my privacy and what should you do as a server administrator to preserve the privacy of your users?

The talk will go from basics to research, will mention some interesting projects and last but not least some bad examples out there.

Speakers Bio: D0rk is an old fart and start working with computers, mainly Unix – at a time when there haven’t been a Linux yet. He’s using OSS whenever possible. To return a bit what he’s benefiting from, he is in engaged in communities like GUUG and OWASP and has also a FOSS pet project named testssl.sh .

Other than that he is just one of those security consultants which too often get payed for stuff which shouldn’t be necessary.
