Event description

Interact with the security community

CanSecWest 2018, the world’s most advanced conference focusing on applied digital security, is about bringing the industry luminaries together in a relaxed environment which promotes collaboration and social networking. The conference lasts for three days and features a single track of thought provoking presentations, each prepared by an experienced professional and talented educator who is at the cutting edge of his or her field. We give preference to new and innovative material, highlighting important, emergent technologies, techniques, or best industry practices.

The conference is single track, with one hour presentations over the duration beginning at 9:00 a.m. The registration fee includes the catered meals, and there will be a vendor display and lounge/eating area, where wireless internet access will be available (as well as in the speaking theater).

Running a little late this year with some unexpected schedule hiccups. But to make sure folks get a chance to look at the information and get the January rates, we are extending those to Feb 3. The final dojo list is up, and treading dangerously past our new course limits, we have added a number of new dojos. But some of those are rule cheats because they are our existing instructors modifying old courses :

  • Jonthan Andersson has moved from the SDR courses to “Hijacking Drones: Reversing DSMx”
  • Saumil Shah has updated his exploit development power up to focus on ARM Exploits
  • Joe FitzPatrick has a new training focused on embedded systems

  • Ashfaq “HackSysTeam” Ansari joins us for his Windows Kernel magic training.
  • Vikram Salunke is joining us with a new four day courses targeted as pentesting corporate infrastructure.
  • Stephan Esser, as usual keeps a close pace to the Apple development march and constantly updates his material.
  • Marc “van Hauser” Heuse tells us this is the last time he will offer his ipv6 course in North America. (!)
  • Guillaume Valadon has his powerful scapy and ipv6 tools and techniques course.
  • Adam Laurie brings his excellent RFID training, still holding strong as a super valid set of information and techniques and Adam is running it twice.
  • Blessen Thomas and Gordon Gonsalves are bringing their Android focused training.
  • Scott Lambert will be teaching Advanced Malware Deobfuscation
  • Dawid Czagan will be teaching Hacking web applications: case studies of award-winning bugs in Google, Yahoo, Mozilla and more
