tracks

Two main tracks

Talks and workshops are organized on two distinct tracks:

  • The track "attacks" aims to present exciting findings: the latest attacks, attack techniques, or research in vulnerabilities.
  • The track "lessons learned" aims to bring another dimension in the event by listening to feedback from people actively working in the security field. We are expecting fascinating talks from various domains.

The two tracks will be recorded and broadcasted later. Some sensitive talks may not be recorded depending on the Traffic Light Protocol category requested by the speaker.

Come and choose your preference!

Proposal topics

Regarding the schedule it won't be a classical split between days dedicated to workshops or talks. We will instead have half a day dedicated to either attack or defense workshops and the second half to talks on the opposite subject. This will allow attendees to better follow specific topics.

  • Secure applications, design, and implementation;
  • Applications security (software, Web apps, Web services, mobile apps, etc.);
  • Network security (protocols, attacks, firewalls, appliances, etc.);
  • Intrusion detection and monitoring (IDS, security operation centers, etc.);
  • Security governance;
  • Cryptography;
  • Risks and threats analysis;
