HiveMind: Distributed File Storage Using JavaScript Botnets

Some data is too sensitive or volatile to store on systems you own.

This presentation will cover the methodology and tools required to create a distributed file store built on top of a JavaScript botnet. This type of data storage offers redundancy, encryption, and plausible deniability, but still allows you to store a virtually unlimited amount of data in any type of file. They can seize your server — but the data’s not there!
