ZeroNights 2012, 19-20 November, Moscow, Russia (www.zeronights.org)
Call for papers // http://2012.zeronights.org/request
If you wish to share your experience, knowledge and skills, it is
easy: send us the description of your paper and the desired
presentation format. Our program committee (https://defcon-russia.ru -
DCG#7812) will consider your application and make the decision. CFP
will last until 10/10/12. We are going to shortlist the applications
and publish the results in several rounds, so we will announce new
approved speakers throughout the CFP period.
You can choose any subject for your paper as long as it fits the scope
of the event but this year we favor the following topics:
1. Practical hacking
Everything that makes hacking attacks worth attention. Finding a
vulnerability is one thing, but digging into it, applying other vulns,
taking other factors into account and devising a working exploit in
the end is an entirely different thing. It's not about cheap things
like APT but about real attack methods which work no matter what and
do actual harm:
* Business system hacks: ERP/RB/SCADA
* Attack vectors which lead to direct profit
* Corporate sector attacks: real cases, disguise methods etc.
* Attacks on POS terminals and ATMs
* Attacks and security breaches of embedded devices
2. Mobile security
Attacks and security breaches in the world of mobile:
* Attacks on protocols like GSM/LTE/3G/CDMA etc.
* OS vulnerabilities (Android/iOS/Windows Phone)
* Firmware vulnerabilities
* Attacks on devices
3. "Fundamental" research
We remain a deeply technical conference, so any new and practical
research in the field of attack methods is very interesting:
* OS defense bypass
* Vulnerability exploitation
* Fuzzing techniques
* Anti-antivirus mechanisms
* Reverse engineering
* Web security
Our scope is not limited to the mentioned topics, so if you think that
your subject will be interesting to the audience feel free to write
