Just incase you missed the announcements on our Twitter stream, we’re adding on a couple of new features to this year’s conference that we’re really excited about:

Capture The Flag Weapons of Mass Destruction 2.0

Capture the Flag Weapons of Mass Destruction 2.0 will for the VERY FIRST TIME feature a collaborative effort between the HITB CTF Crew, Whitewolf Security and The Hex Factor. The basic principle of CTF-WMD is similar to past CTF competitions held at Hack in The Box – attack and defend. Teams of 3 will have a set of daemons / services running on their machines and they need to exploit rival teams’ daemons to get their flags. Submit the flag to obtain offensive points. Keep your daemons up and running to obtain defensive points.

Lock Picking Village by TOOOL.nl featuring Barry Wels and Han Fey

Set up and run by Barry Wels and Han Fey – the ORIGINAL FOUNDERS OF The Open Organization of Lockpickers (TOOOL Netherlands), attendees to this year’s event will get a chance to try their hand at picking, shimming, bumping, safecracking, and other physical security attacks. It has always been customary for TOOOL-sponsored physical security sessions to offer some degree of audience interaction and hands-on training. Sometimes this has taken the form of publicly-submitted locks being given on the spot security analysis, other times members of the general public with no lock-picking experience have been invited to attempt a bypass in order to demonstrate its ease.

HITB Hard-Hack Village by HackerspaceKL & Random Data (Utrecht, The Netherlands)

In the HITB Hard-Hack Village you will be able to play-around with electronics. Set up and run by the folks from Hackerspace Kuala Lumpur and Randomdata (Utrecht/Netherlands), the Hard Hack Village will help you to setup your own electronics and demonstrate how easy things work. One of the main electronic components which will be used is the Arduino micro-controller platform. Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.

HITB SIGINT (Signals Intelligence / Signal Interrupt)

A brand new introduction for 2010, the HITB SIGINT (Signal Intelligence/Interrupt) sessions are designed to provide a quick 15 minute overview for material and research that’s up and coming – stuff that isn’t quite ready for the mainstream tracks of the conference but deserve a mention nonetheless. This session is also open to all final year students who want to present their projects to industry experts and prove their worth before they graduate.

Lastly, if you haven’t seen it, the electronic conference flyer is now available for download. We had a really exceptional number of early bird registrations this year and if you’re thinking of attending the conference, we strongly suggest you REGISTER NOW or face the prospect of getting turned back at the door. See you guys in October!

- The HITB Team

The early bird registration for HITB2010 Malaysia is now closed – There was an overwhelming number of sign ups this year during the early bird period and we thank all of you who registered early! From the looks of it, seats for this years event WILL BE VERY LIMITED, so if you haven’t already signed up you might want to do so before they’re all sold out!

On a related the note, the Call for Papers for the conference has also closed and we received some really nice submissions. The shortlisting of speakers will begin this week and the first batch of speaker announcements will be made on the week of 16th August…

Welcome to the official homepage of HITBSecConf2010 – Malaysia. The main aim of the HITBSecConf conference series is to create a truly technical and deep knowledge event in order to allow you to learn first hand on the security threats you face in todays super connected world. The HITBSecConf platform is used to enable the dissemination, discussion and sharing of critical network security information.

Presented by respected members of both the mainstream network security arena as well as the underground or black hat community, our events routinely highlight new and ground-breaking attack and defense methods that have not been seen or discussed in public before. HITBSecConf2010 – Malaysia will be our 8th conference ‘at home’ and is expected to attract over 1000 delegates from around the globe! Come and learn from some of the leading experts in the network security arena.

HITBSecConf2010 – Malaysia will incorporate our new QUAD TRACK FORMAT introduced at HITBSecConf2010 – Amsterdam and will also feature an all new Capture The Flag Weapons of Mass Destruction game! We believe HITBSecConf is an ideal platform for leading network security vendors to not only meet with some of the leading network security specialists but to also showcase their own technology and solutions with the public as well.
