### ZeroNights is an international conference dedicated to the
technical side of information security. ###
Our event is a unique, unmatched happening in the world of security in
Russia. Guests from all over the world, technical hacking papers and
workshops – no milk-and-water, no commercials, just technology,
working methods, attacks and forensics!
### Best papers from the experts all over the world ###
Interesting technical speeches will be given by the planet’s best
speakers. Only hot research, actual problems and real attacks. A paper
like those is what shows you that anything you might buy or use is
vulnerable in one way or the other. A paper like those can help you
evaluate the real security level of a system, a technology, a protocol
etc. ZeroNights is the place to learn how hackers work, how malware
and exploits work.
### CFP ###
November, 19-20 Moscow, Russia
If you wish to share your experience, knowledge and skills, it is
easy: send us the description of your paper and the desired
presentation format. Our program committee (DCG#7812) will consider
your application and make the decision. CFP will last until 10/10/12.
We are going to shortlist the applications and publish the results in
several rounds, so we will announce new approved speakers throughout
the CFP period.
You can choose any subject for your paper as long as it fits the scope
of the event but this year we favor the following topics:
# Practical hacking #
Everything that makes hacking attacks worth attention. Finding a
vulnerability is one thing, but digging into it, applying other vulns,
taking other factors into account and devising a working exploit in
the end is an entirely different thing. It’s not about cheap things
like APT but about real attack methods which work no matter what and
do actual harm:
-Business system hacks: ERP/SCADA/PLC
-Attack vectors which lead to direct profit
-Corporate sector attacks: real cases, disguise methods,unique systems, etc.
-Attacks on POS terminals and ATMs
-Attacks and security breaches of embedded devices
# Mobile security #
Attacks and security breaches in the world of mobile:
-Attacks on protocols like GSM/LTE/3G/CDMA etc.
-OS vulnerabilities (Android/iOS/Windows Phone)
-Attacks on devices
# “Fundamental” research #
We remain a deeply technical conference, so any new and practical
research in the field of attack methods is very interesting:
-OS defense bypass
Our scope is not limited to the mentioned topics, so if you think that
your subject will be interesting to the audience feel free to write
