Gamify Security Training with Developer CTFs

When: Tue September 13, 2016 07:30 PM to 09:00 PM

Speaker: Kyle Rankin

Location: O'Reilly Media

Capture the Flag tournaments have long been used to test hacker skills but they can also serve as effective security training for developers. This talk will feature a case study where I turned teams of developers with no prior security training against each other in a CTF arena featuring their own applications and watched them rack up points as they popped shells in each other’s applications.
