The full schedule of speakers and workshops now released

The 12th edition of hack.lu, taking place on October 18-20 at Alvisse Parc Hotel Luxembourg, is again a not-to-miss international event for all the computer security, privacy and information technology experts.

Some Key Talks

The impressive line up of speakers and workshops will cover various topics about computer security, privacy, information technology and its cultural/technical implication on society. This year’s talks include technical demonstrations, for instance on “how to remotely exploit and attack seismological networks” or a previous Defcon talk on “Cyber Grand Shellphish: Shellphish and the DARPA Cyber Grand Challenge”. Wayne and Sun Huang will unveil the attack chain of Russian-speaking cybercriminals. There will also be familiar names like Stefan Esser giving “An in-depth view into the iOS Kernel Vulnerabilities abused by PEGASUS”. Mahsa Alimardani, the Iran editor for Global Voices and Iranian-Canadian Internet researcher will explain the need to bridge the relationship between the practices of change actors and the decisions of technologists to ensure that they inform the technologies and digital security guidelines given to them - not the other way.
