Ruxcon 2015, like many former Ruxcons such as Ruxcon2014 was held in the CQ Conference Centre on Queen St., Melbourne on the weekend of 23rd - 25th October, 2015. Probably held in conjunction with the Breakpoint conference.

This was the 11th Ruxcon, held in a similar format to the annual DEF CON "hacker convention" in the U.S.



There were two streams of talks, as well as some other activities, such as Capture The Flag (CTF) etc.

SDN Security

Cool talk on SDN Security by David Jorm, a Brisbane-based Java Security expert, now head of the Security teams for OpenDaylight and ONOS.

"Famous" for identifying a bug in OpenDaylight (and ONOS?) wherein a crafted packet would be sent from the switching fabric to the controller, but the (Java) SDN controller did not process correctly and ended up disconnecting the switch device from the control plane. Funny, but serious.
