Last week we enjoyed quite a wonderful HAXPO exhibition and HITB conference in Amsterdam. A number of great talks could be heard at the main HITB conference such as “Bootkit via SMS: 4G Access Level Security Assessment” or “Stegosploit: Hacking with Pictures“. And not only that: there were also several engaging hands-on workshops.
Apart from the main conference, there was the HAXPO – a hacker exhibition. At this exhibition you could connect with people from different companies, get a lot of merchandise, and also listen to several briefings on security and its philosophy. Fortunately, we had the pleasure to present two of these briefings and maybe you tested your web application skills at the ERNW booth.
There are lots of interesting places to visit in Amsterdam, but if you are there between the 26th and the 29th of May, then our booth at HAXPO exhibition should be your main destination.
HAXPO is a great exhibition, where you can become up-to-date with the latest security technologies, attend various workshops and get in touch with more than 35 IT and information security companies. It will take place in the beautiful historical building “Beurs van Berlage” in the center of Amsterdam. As usual, ERNW will take part in HAXPO. We will be waiting for you in the Community Village section (booth NL-018). Come visit and get to know more about us. You are invited to take our hacking challenges, where the levels of complexity vary from beginners to advanced. Furthermore, we will bring our KNX hacking suitcase!
In addition to the exhibition, HAXPO offers a very interesting track of must-see briefings about security and cutting-edge innovations. Don’t miss the talks held by ERNW members! On May 29th, you will see Oliver Matula and Christopher Scheuring with their talk “When You Stare into the Sandbox, It Stares Back at You: Evaluating the APT Armor”. On the same day Rafael Schaefer and Jason Salazar will lead you through “Pentesting in the Age of IPv6”.
Past month we (which is me and a group of other ERNW students, supported by some of the “old” guys — I hope my team lead won’t yell at me for this 😉 ) attended the Haxpo and Hack in the Box in Amsterdam. Starting from 28. May, we had three days at this great conference (HITB) and exposition (Haxpo). The two events took place in the former building of the stock exchange in Amsterdam, called: “Beurs van Berlage”. Upon entering the building for the first time we were given details on where our booth was and where the talks would take place — setting up our booth and planning the shifts was just another thing to do before exploring the Haxpo area:
