CFP Deadline Jan. 30, 2019, 11 p.m.


We are now accepting 20 & 40 minute talks as we as 2 and 3 hour workshops!

NorthSec covers the full spectrum of applied security. We try to take a practical approach to covering security topics, so we very much like talks that feature demos and/or working POCs and/or open source tool releases. We do not accept talks that are essentially sales pitches for commercial products, nor do we accept sponsored talks.

Application & Infrastructure Security: Got talks about about pentesting, network security, software and/or hardware exploitation, web hacking, reverse engineering, malware/virii/rootkits, or anything low-level that makes your personal clock tick? We’re here for it! The conference is followed by a 48h on-site CTF — if your talk or workshop can be “weaponized” in this event, we’d like to know!

Cryptography & Obfuscation: From theoretical cryptosystems to applied cryptography exploitation, steganography, covert communication systems, and how to break all of the above, we’d like to hear from you!

Society, law & ethics: Technical subjects are at the core of the security field, but they also exist in a world of humans, affected by their social environment & political context. If you’ve got something great to say about the social implications of privacy, security, censorship, etc. this is the place for you.
