After an 8-year hiatus, HITBSecConf returns to the UAE! Featuring 2 days of technical training courses followed by our 2-day multi-track conference. The conference days will feature HITB’s popular Capture the Flag competition, a technology exhibition with a focus area on IoT and blockchain related tech, a car hacking village, hardware related village and a space for makers and hackerspaces. And not forgetting our CommSec track – a free-to-attend track of 30 and 60-minute talks that we also live stream on Youtube!
In addition, HITB2018 Dubai will also feature an all new HITB Armory tools demo area! Organized in collaboration with Tools Watch and Opposing Force, the HITB Armory is a dedicated area where independent researchers will get to show off their projects, run their demos and allow you to play around with their awesome security tools!
The on-site CTF will be a team and individual-based jeopardy style Capture The Flag competition organized by the XCTF Team from China! Alongside this, we will also be running a Capture the Flag competition catering specifically to high-school and college students! The .edu CTF contest will feature attack oriented challenges on Day 1 and defense focused ones on Day 2. Top 3 teams will be asked to present their walkthroughs on both days. Teams will be judged on time taken to solve the challenges, their ingenuity in solving it, and their presentations.
