The Toulouse Hacking Convention is a day of talks and presentations based around IT security, followed by a “Capture the Flag” competition.

Talks on Ethical Hacking

Throughout the day, there will be several talks on diverse and technical subjects in IT security including:

Stephane Duverger
App vs Wild
Jonathan Salwan
Playing with binary analysis
Philippe Lagadec
Macro Pest Control
Guillaume Endignoux
Diving into the Portable Document Format

among others (the full schedule will be available soon).

Oh, and did we mention there will be Free Food ?


In the evening, participants can compete on different technical challenges proposed by our team. This kind of competition is called “Capture the Flag”, an ideal setting to discover the world of IT security.

There will also be workshops during the whole day for those who want to open their mind.

The objective of this all-night event is for those interested to get a first taste of Hacking with an ethical mindset and for those more experienced to challenge themselves and come face to face with their peers.

Legends says there will be 10 beers on tap (including the belgian ones) for those who do not forget to bring some cash, but it's classified stuff.
