Introduction to the Portable Document Format. We look inside PDF files and learn about the format itself, it's strengths and weaknesses, and try to set a base for further individual studies. PDF is a file format everyone is using, but most people, including the majority of the hacker community, knows very little about how it works. This lecture is intended as an introduction to the PDF file format. For the audience, knowledge about other file formats is helpful but not mandatory. The file format will be explained in as much detail as fits in one hour, using self-generated "hello world" style examples as well as more complicated examples for selected PDF features.
