BlackHat, one of the world's biggest security conferences, was held in Las Vegas two weeks ago. Among the BlackHat conferences this year, Las Vegas was by far the biggest event - bringing thousands of security researchers to the heart of the Sin City. Bigger then ever before, BlackHat featured eleven tracks with an impressive number of high quality talks and trainings. We were there, and we were more than proud to present our newest file analysis tool, TitanMist, to the World.
In a fairly full room, for a reversing track that is, we presented the TitanMist project we have been working on for the past couple of months. Best described as an automated PE32 file format identification and unpacking tool, TitanMist aims to improve collaboration among reverse engineers across the globe. That is an ambitious goal, but we have high hopes for this project and believe that we can grow it into something of great value in the coming months. Our detailed project roadmap will be unveiled on our blog next week.
The TitanMist presentation was accompanied by theArsenal presentation that featured all of our tools:TitanEngine, NyxEngine and TitanMist. This kind of tool demo was introduced at this year's BlackHat USA and we must admit that we like the idea of tool presentations, during which authors receive direct feedback from the community. This feedback enables us to add new features and improve our tools even further. We got many great ideas from talking to attendees with an interest in our tools and what we do. Ones attendees with particularly intriguing questions or ideas questions were rewarded with one of our TitanEngine T-Shirts. But t-shirt winner or not, we thank you all for your continuing support of ReversingLabs and the TitanEngine project!

That is it for this report, until next week...
