Speaker: Jakob L. Kreuze

Capture-the-flag is a fun way to learn about cybersecurity, but some challenges are difficult to approach without knowing the intricacies of the category. Come down to this educational workshop to learn the basics of "pwn" challenges. By the end of the session, you'll have the knowledge necessary to exploit everyone's favorite memory corruption vulnerability: the stack buffer overflow. The workshop should be accessible to beginners, but some level of familiarity with Linux and programming is expected. Please bring your own computer with QEMU (see https://www.qemu.org/download/). Following the workshop component, we'll be playing in the Hack.Lu capture-the-flag and putting this new knowledge to use.
