The Social-Engineer Events have quickly become part of the fun at Defcon, so we wanted to take a minute to recap some of the events and lessons learned from Defcon 19 and talk about our plans for next year.
With that in mind we wanted to take a minute to address some of the false conclusions that are being made based on some of the data coming out of this year’s Social Engineering Capture the Flag contest.
In conjunction with Defcon, Social-Engineer.Org is hosting the first ever KIDS CTF. As part of the 2 day long Security For Kids Con, SEORG will be running a “How Strong is Your Schmooze – Kids Edition” Social-Engineering CTF just for the kids.
As the contestants for the Social-Engineer.Org SECTF at Defcon 19 are underway, we want to give a little help. Our last years winner is going to reveal his secrets to how he won the SECTF.
Below is the SECTF Report for DEF CON 18 Enjoy
The How Strong Is Your Schmooze contest is on it’s way. The targets have been chosen, the dossier’s have been sent and the social engineering talent has bloomed. The team at social-engineer.org wanted to give a few updates to the CTF.
The awareness that has been raised is just amazing. There has been many stories written and podcasts discussing the contest and what the rules are. People are wondering and very curious about what it will entail. There has been numerous alerts issued from various agencies about the contest. I will post one of them below.
We are inviting those of you who think you can use ethical social engineering skills to stretch your limits as a social engineer. A unique blend of information gathering, planning and attack vector execution will challenge the very core of every participant.
