I had no idea this was possible. It's a shame that there is no talk available though. A lot of slides make little sense, like 14-16 for example.

Anyway, very interesting presentation. Thank you for sharing limdis.

Well, in regards to slide 14-16 the talk could have gone something like:

Arguably the most important part of image analysis is Observation. Take this Warez Factory for example, say you want to find out as much as you can about this to possibly get the perpetrator. The poster on the wall might give a clue as to when and where the picture was taken. Tarzan didn't exist a while back and one could argue whether anyone would keep an outdated poster on the wall for a long time. Aside from that both the bottle on the table and the poster give a language clue, a way to find out the location. Both the disks and the bottle of alcohol might be region specific further narrowing down a location. Getting as much information from a picture is key here.

Hmm, I never looked at a picture this close before, but I found you can really find out a lot of data now that I did. Thanks Limdis, this stuff is pretty interesting. :)

It could be yes, but 14-16 was just an example. There are a lot of other slides where some explanation would come in handy.

@Randoph if you want to know what the presentation means either read the paper or find some videos of the Black Hat DC conference from February 2008, or the Black Hat Briefings from August 2007.
