The Kommand && Kontroll CTF series, designed by Rod Soto, has been described as one of the most realistic hacking simulations ever designed, with an array of exploitable vulnerabilities that mimic real world digital warfare scenarios ranging from basic web application attacks to simulated SCADA based critical infrastructure takeovers. Competitors are able to play solo or in teams in this no-holds-barred capture the flag style hacking contest.
The HackMiami K&&K CTF has been featured at hacking conferences nationwide. The K&&K event has also been the subject of mainstream media coverage, such as the recent Rolling Stone article “The Geeks on the Front Lines.”
Prizes are offered to the team who establish themselves as the most skilled hacker crew.
This comprehensive two day hands-on session will demonstrate the true theory and practice of the exploitation of a variety of injection flaws, such variations on the dangerous SQL injection attack. By the end of the course, attendees will have received an in-depth understanding of the real consequences that arise from this vulnerability, furthermore the student will also leave with a practical understanding of the methods, tools, and techniques that are leveraged through code injection attacks.
During the two-days course, participants will have access to a number of challenges for each type of flaw, and they will learn a variety of exploitation techniques, tools, and methods used by the attackers in the wild. The course is being taught by Sumit Siddharth, the founder of Not So Secure Ltd, a specialist IT security firm delivering high-end IT security consultancy and Training.
"The attack surface of web applications have evolved beyond the exploitation of PHP/SQL scenarios," advised Sumit Siddharth. "Attackers are able to leverage APIs, XML, and other unsanitized vectors that can lead to server compromise or data loss. My training course cover these new methods, as well as discusses preventative measures."
