Event Details

~# 2017 Workshop

Workshops are a great way to explore a science, technology, engineering and/or math (STEHM) disciplines deeper than at an Activity Station.

We encourage each Tyro (novice learner) to take a workshop while at Hak4Kidz GRR. Workshops will take up a good part of their day so plan your haktivies accordingly.

Workshop registration requires complete Tyro registration for the general admission Hak4Kidz GRR event.

~# Web Hacking Exposed: Death Star Edition

~## Synopsis

When the Rebel Alliance stood bravely against the Galactic Empire and the Death Star, they knew they needed to find a weakness in the system to gain leverage, and hopefully bring them down. They tried different methods of infiltrating the planet destroyer, but caught a break when they managed to find the one vulnerability that would lead to the Death Star's ultimate demise.

Much like the Rebel Alliance trying to find vulnerabilities, professional ethical hackers look for weaknesses in systems, and applications. They then dig deep to find a way to gain access to files or systems that should have otherwise been protected. Just like the Death Star, one weakness is all the bad guys need to gain that tactical advantage. What if the Death Star had a pen tester to find that weakness beforehand?

In this workshop, TrustedSec Sr. Security Consultant Brent White will give you an introduction into the world of ethical hacking web apps. You'll learn about ethical hacking, introduction of how websites work along with the common vulnerabilities that are found. You'll then cover common tools and techniques used to exploit those vulnerabilities.

~## Workshop Requirements

Tyros (students) will need to bring the following:

  • Download and test boot the lab OWASP Vulnerable Web App virtual machine file. 
  • Working Laptop with Windows 7 or higher, Mac OS X, or Linux installed
  • Laptops must have a Wireless network adapter
  • VMware player must also be installed on the laptop
  • A base installation of Kali Linux installed and ready to go!

Hak4Kidz is an event of ethical hackers and Information Security professionals dedicated to bring the educational and communal benefits of white hat hacking conferences to children and young adults. We plan to accomplish this mission by putting our collective expertise and passion on display for the attendees to interact with us at their will. A combination of youth base speaking tracks complementing an open area of stations will enable the attendees to expand and enlighten their technical interests. For innovation to perpetuate, it’s imperative that today’s young users are exposed to the bigger picture of how we got here and to help realize their potential.

Hak4Kidz operates as a public charity registered with the IRS under 501(c)(3) regulations.
