WINJA Scholarship

Winja – CTF lets you test your hacking skills and helps you learn new as well as different attack methodologies to exploit a vulnerability.
This is a unique event with the aim to spread awareness of information security among the Women.

By popular demand, the hardware CTF organized by Quarkslab team is back for a second edition!

Ever wondered how to break a smart lock? How to spy on embedded devices? How do car chips work? How to desolder and recall a flash chip? Then this CTF is for you!

We've got plenty of challenges related to various themes such as RFID, Bluetooth, automotive, side-channel analysis, (de)soldering, radio, and much more. We will provide the hardware hacking tools you might need (soldering iron, logic analyzer, ...) as well as guidance on how to use them.

Just grab your PC and come try to solve our challenges. You'll have fun, learn new skills and who knows, maybe use these skills to break real embedded devices and propose a talk for next year!

Requirements: a PC with Linux is needed for some of the challenges, but we've also some other ones that can be done without PC.

How to participate: once the CTF is open, come to our booth, register a new team and start playing!

The CTF will be open from 01/03/2019 10:00 am to 02/03/2019 03:30 pm IST.
