Saturday, July 19, 2008: 6:00 pm (Turing): There is an entire world of PSTNs out there that most people never bother to look into. People have a tendency to call within their area (country) and never stray or "wander" outside. This talk hopes to change that perception. With VoIP, we have the ability to call worldwide for fractions of a penny. Why not call that X.25 network in Russia? Or India? Why not explore foreign data networks and find new and old things still out there? Think war dialing in the U.S. is washed up? Why not try a country where computers and technology are built on the hardware we've thrown out? In many parts of the world, phone networks and data networks are built using the existing PSTN infrastructure. They simply can't afford to purchase modern SONET/DS hardware. Nor can they afford to run fiber optics or coax to every neighborhood. The legal ramifications in hacking such systems are significantly less than hacking U.S. computer networks. The media is filled with reports of Chinese hackers infiltrating U.S. networks. That being said, doesn't it make sense to return the favor?
