About the Conference

About the Presentations

Hijacking A Pizza Delivery Robot (Using SQL injection)
Welcome to the lighter side of the software security world! We’ll explain complex topics like injection flaws, configuration errors, and parameter tampering with real-world analogies, like breaking into your house through your shed, or sneaking into a Coldplay concert using a reflective yellow vest, a walkie talkie toy, and bravado. If you’ve ever struggled to remember exactly how these issues work or struggled to explain them to someone outside of the security field, this presentation will help (and probably make you laugh). This talk is ideal for anyone who wants to understand core Application Security concepts so they can apply risk mitigation strategies with better context.

RFID Security In Corporates
This workshop will talk about various security aspects about RFID’s system implementation in corporates and how an unauthorized user could leverage it to their profit. This workshop is geared towards beginners who would want to understand RFID systems and its security aspects with no prior or limited knowledge about it. This session covers all the fundamentals to start with RFID systems and explore the stream from a Security standpoint.

Web Hacking Using a Cyber Range
Bring out the hacker in you by trying out Security Innovation’s Hacking Cyber Range – specially designed web applications with real world vulnerabilities. A parallel class session will also teach novices about how to uncover simple vulnerabilities and evolve into uncovering more complex vulnerabilities. You can simply sit and learn or get straight to hacking our application or follow along and do both. Live scores of participants will be displayed.
