CFP Deadline

April 30, 2018, 11:55 p.m.   

Conference Date

June 2, 2018, 9 a.m.   


-=Call for Papers=-
OzSecCon (formerly OzLockCon) is the first conference in Australia specifically on physical security research and offensive/defensive techniques.

We aim to bring the openness to share information found in conferences of the information security industry to a different crowd.

Please fill out the Google forms on the website

Submissions close April 30th 2018.

-=Talk topics=-
We are looking for presenters to talk on a range of topics in an informal environment amongst their peers.

In the hacker-spirit of things we’re after submissions that hold great technical detail and/or provide a critical view at an aspect or technology within the domain of physical security.

So, some topic ideas:

picking techniques
bypass techniques & tools
impressioning techniques
digital lock manipulation
decoding attacks
safe manipulation
the locksport community and our hobby
historical/antique locks
privilege escalation attacks
key duplication
alarm system attacks
building access control systems
motor vehicle security
DIY tools and their making
making cut-aways
lock manufacturing
metallurgy, metalworking, and material science research
improving physical security
‘tamper-evident’ seals
making/hacking challenge locks
legal aspects of locksport in Oceania
physical security in red teaming/pen. testing
radio security (eg. mobile, pagers, cb radio)
rfid/Magstripe/Smartcard security
social engineering
If your topic isn’t listed here but relates to physical security, please submit anyway and we will be happy to review it.

Submissions that have nothing to do with physical security will be rejected.

-=Call for Workshops=-
In addition to traditional ‘talks’ (like at most other conferences), OzSecCon will have hands-on content.

We are looking for people to run workshops. These can run anywhere between an hour to the full course of the conference.

If you require financial assistance in order to run such a workshop (eg. to purchase a large number of key blanks and files to teach impressioning techniques) please let us know in your submission and we’ll try to help you out.
