Netcraft are running a workshop where you can learn how to find networking vulnerabilities in apps used by millions of people.

Bring your own laptop, phone or tablet to take part.

Netcraft has discovered a large number of Android & IOS apps which do not implement SSL certificate validation correctly – allowing an attacker to carry out a ‘man-in-the-middle attack’, where they place themselves between the app and the real server.

They will give a short tutorial outlining and illustrating the concept, followed by a hands-on competition to see who can MitM the apps used by the largest number of people in the time available. Netcraft staff will be available when you want help.

Food & drinks will be provided.
