The Swedish technical IT security conference SEC-T will be held on 8th and 9th of September this year. The SEC-T conference is a really nice arrangement that brings some high quality speakers from around the world to Stockholm for two days.
The call for papers (CFP) for SEC-T was released a couple of days ago, including requests for topics ranging from “Why the attacker always wins” and “how to run a CIRT” to “Offensive tools and techniques, from bug-hunting to post-exploitation”.
A great thing about SEC-T is that is arranged by a non-profit organization:
“SEC-T is a non-profit organisation that was created to host an annual technical security conference in Stockholm, Sweden. Our mission is to spread security awareness and information about security threats among the swedish tech community.”See http://www.sec-t.org/About.html for more details.
The SEC-T crew have also released a challenge, which can be retrieved from here: http://www.sec-t.org/2011/challenge.html
“This year we are really challenging you all with our hardest puzzle yet! To really give you a fair chance we are releasing the challenge 5 months in advance, that's just how hard it is.
There will be two winners who both will win a free ticket to the conference and special VIP treatment during the event (no travel). The person to send us the correct solution quickest will be the first winner and the second winner will be determined by style and completeness of the attached write-up.”
PS. Netresec are not affiliated with SEC-T, we are just happy that there is an annual high-quality IT security conference held here in Sweden.
