From light bulbs to drones, sophisticated technology is integrated into nearly every aspect of our lives. Today, nearly everyone is technologically curious if not active in a maker or hackerspace. The world is, essentially, a security researcher’s dream.  The ease with which devices can now be altered also makes some companies uncomfortable or eager to profit off of user generated content.  Mediating these competing needs is the law, written largely for generations-old technology by political bodies not conversant in the nuances of bleeding edge tech.

Enter DRM, which can be used to prevent your devices from completing legal tasks or punish researchers who seek to secure them. OWASP is proud to offer you a chance to speak with the EFF’s Cory Doctorow about their current lawsuit and the intersection of security research and DRM. The second half of the one hour session will be opened up to a Q&A by the audience.
