Dear friends, this year we’ve decided to invite over representatives of various IT communities known for their initiatives and projects in applied cybersecurity. Together, we’ll be creating the ZeroNight’s content for you by preparing exclusive workshops, contests, and discussions.
|A number of well-known communities have already announced their support the ZN.|
Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) — an open project on WebApps security. The OWASP community includes corporations, educational institutions and individuals worldwide. The Community writes papers, workbooks and documents, creates tools and technologies that are distributed for free. The OWASP Community is aimed at improving apps security, considering both the human factor and the level of technology. During ZN Conference, OWASP members will have their say on what they’re doing and share best practices in Application Security.
Beyond OWASP Top 10
OWASP (Open Web Application Security Project) is a worldwide not-for-profit charitable organization focused on improving the security of software, which consolidates corporations, universities, government agencies and individuals. Operating as a community of like-minded professionals, OWASP issues software tools and knowledge-based documentation on application security. OWASP is mostly known for Top 10 and Testing Guide projects, however, there are many more beyond them!
|r0 Crew is a community of low-level information security researchers (reverse engineering, researching viruses and exploits). The main goal of the community is to create a supportive environment for gatherings, communication, and exchange of experience.|
|RuCTFE is an annual online international challenge in the information security. It has been held 6 times already. The contest is driven by classic rules. Each team is given a set of vulnerable services. Organizers regulary fill services with private information — the flags. The goal of each team is to find vulnerabilities, fix them in their services and exploit them in order to get flags from other teams.|
|Hardware Village is a project created by hardware enthusiasts for the enthusiasts of any level of experience. The project members will continue to impress the ZeroNights guests with various low-level hacks and tricks. If hardware means more than bolts and rivets to you, be sure to stop by. A lot of hardware and electronics will be there for you. We’ll spend most of the two days on workshops conducted by the old and new school hackers. Moreover, we will arrange for Q&A sessions and hardware hacking time contests.|
The list will be gradually expanding. On this page, we will be telling you about how each community will contribute to the unique content of the 2016 ZeroNights.
