Subjects covered will be as diverse as pentesting, network security, software and/or hardware exploitation, web hacking, reverse engineering, malware/virii/rootkits or anything low-level that makes your personal clock tick :)
Cryptography & obfuscation
From theoretical cryptosystems to applied cryptography exploitation, cryptocurrencies, steganography and covert communication systems, anything goes!
Society & Ethics
Technical subjects are at the core of the security field, but they also exist in a world of humans, affected by their social environment & political context. If you want to exchange great ideas about the digital society and it’s security implications, NorthSec is the place.
Competition May 20th, 21st and 22nd
Our applied security contest (also called CTF as in "Capture The Flag") opposes 50 teams of 8 people trying to obtain the most points by capturing flags.
Those flags typically are secret messages hidden in different challenges, covering multiple security fields (networking, binary reverse engineering, data forensics, hardware hacking, and more).
The Challenges will be available to teams through a web portal on their own private contest network, they are not authorized to attack each other (it's not a red/blue team type of contest), they compete to have the most points on the leaderboard.
