0xcon is an infosec conference aimed towards building the Gauteng and ZA community. Lots of you do great research and this is an open platform for you to share yours, as well as to see what others have been working on.
Due to the uncertainty around the lockdown, we're planning to do this remotely in 2020. That means we can have many more people watch our talks, and, hopefully, get some speakers from abroad too. Help us spread the word!
We're hosting a challenge at challenge.0xcon.co.za. It's a normal CTF with a flag at the end. You'll find an email address to mail the flag to and there's a prize each for the first two peeps we get mails from. We'll ship these anywhere in South Africa with Aramex and will talk shipping options with anyone overseas. Normal CTF rules apply. Try not to break it for others, and if you do, send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll reset it quick. Good luck!
0xcon's primary goal is to build the infosec community in Gauteng and South Africa. South Africa is naturally culturally diverse, and we're committed to providing a friendly, safe and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, ability, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or religion.
In pursuit of this goal, we've laid out the following rules for speakers and attendees.
