Interviews with four of the speakers at FOSDEM 2010 are now available
will be held February 6-7 in Brussels, Belgium. This round of interviews includes David Fifield (Nmap), Greg Kroah-Hartman (Linux kernel), Richard Clayton (Evil on the internet), and Wim Remes (OSSEC). From David Fifield's interview: "The talk will be about the Nmap Scripting Engine, or NSE. This is an embedded Lua interpreter combined with networking libraries that have access to Nmap's internal data structures. After running a port scan, the scripts you select will run to get more information about the target. We have some simple scripts that do things like check for a readable /etc/passwd on a web server or get an SSL server certificate, and more complex ones that look up AS numbers, check for Windows vulnerabilities, or list NFS exports.
" More speaker interviews will be coming in the next few weeks.
