Description: Phillipe Biondi and Patrice Desclaux from EADS completely reversed Skype.
In 3 steps (binary analysis, network analysis, advanced skype manipulation) they show you the beast and how clever it was designed. But it also shows negative points: a security policy with skype is nearly impossible, it can be exploited as a botnet, it is very difficult to monitor its traffic to prevent the bad from the rest. A must read.
