To promote awareness of security vulnerabilities and defenses against such vulnerabilities
To advance education by providing workshops, seminars and training programs on existing, new and emerging security topics
To conduct research and development in the pursuit of responsible disclosure through security vulnerability discovery
The RFID village offers a showcase of some of the more common RFID access controls, and endeavors to show attendees the common weaknesses of these controls. Using specialized RFID tools, attendees can read and clone low frequency access cards, and test them out on our miniaturized doors.
In addition, we introduce attendees to high frequency RFID cards, and some of the attacks on early versions such as the MiFare Classic, and how later iterations improved on the security of the cards.
The flagship event is our IoT Village CTF (Capture the Flag) competition. The CTF consists of participants hacking numerous off-the-shelf devices (e.g. medical devices, home appliances, routers, and storage devices, cameras etc).
As you can imagine, this is quite energizing, exciting and piques a lot of curiosity as a hands-on/applied security event!
Our other events include an IoT 0-day challenge where participants can hunt for new vulnerabilities in the latest IoT devices, and an IoT CTF 101 where participants can use pre-configured laptops with the necessary testing tools and obtain key hints to help them solve the basic level challenges for the IoT Village CTF.
We take pride in providing responsible disclosure for the proactive discovery of security vulnerabilities we uncover during assessments of various devices, firmwares and protocols. We look forward to providing you with active feedback on your product or technology.
