CONFidence 2012

CONFidence 2012
May 23 - 24, 2012
Krakow, Poland


CONFidence is an annual IT security conference that will take place on 23-24th May 2012 in Krakow, Poland for the 10th time! The best speakers, latest issues, laid-back atmosphere and Krakow crazy night life - that is why CONFidence has become a meeting point of the hacker community in Europe. This year, apart from the technical part a special “SpyGames” game will be run. Attendees will participate in real spy contests including sneaking past sensors, lockpicking, and will have to rescue a prisoner from a bunker. Find out more on the website!

Re: CONFidence 2012

The organizers sent me a little more info, so I thought I'd share:


CONFidence is gaining momentum, so get ready for two days filled with lectures and extreme attractions! The presentations will be divided into four theme groups (2 each day) with more than 30 speakers, unpublished materials, workshops and a special X-traction point game, which is something you haven't seen before!

Schedule template contains four separate thematic tracks:

• WebSec – Web application Security
• Cross-Layer – Communication protocols, Servers, Applications, Misc
• AppSec – Security and Application Flaws
• Pwnage – Bypassing the security systems, hacking technologies

Some of the speakers at the conference include John "Captain Crunch" Draper, Gregor Kopf, Ashar Javed, Alexey Sintsov, Eduardo Luiz, Luiz Eduardo, Zane Lackey, Raoul Chiesa and many more.

Details of the schedule can be found at: http://2012.confidence.org.pl/agenda

As always at the conference there will be discussion panels led by world-class experts, including, "Secure Web application - is it possible?" panel led by Mario Heiderich and Gareth Hayes.

There will also be additional workshops before and/or after the conference, inlucing a special workshop prepared by Compendium, where you can prepare for and obtaining an ISECOM certificate.

Apart from the normal presentations, there will be special Ligtning Talks track spread over two days. Attendees will be able to perform short, 5 minutes long presentations, covering all range of topics ranging from their projects, research results to even some specific hobbies. Every conference attendee has a possibility to submit a topic for as long as there are free slots for the talks.

For the very first time, we will deploy an X-traction Point contest, where attendees will be given a possibility to test their skills in lockpicking, knowledge about alarm systems, motion and sound detectors along with basic hacking skills. They will have to use their knowledge in a live bunker infiltration, get behind the security systems, pass the guards and save a prisoner. All that live streamed for the audience. This will be spectacular!



Although I don't speak Polish, I am of Polish descent. So why not help an ancestral event.  8)
