Ethical Hacking: Real-World Applications

Ethical Hacking: Real-World Applications

Ethical Hacking: Real-World Applications and Beyond Your Comfort Zone will be held within the Ethical Hacking course (BI-EHA). The lecture will be in English and will take place on April 27 at 16:15 in room T9:105.


Filip Štěpánek from Accenture (Golden FIT Partner) will give us a talk on case studies in “Embedded Systems Hacking”, where he examines hacking consumer electronics (demonstrated on set-top boxes) and smart devices (demonstrated on smart-printers). In the second part called “Pentesting in the Real World”, Martin Hartl from AEC a.s. will share with us case studies from web application security as well as thick client penetration testing domains, and the best for last, testing ATM machines!

About Event

Anyone at FIT CTU is welcome and will definitely benefit from the lecture (feel free to invite your friends). That said, even though both talks are open for all, any discussion assumes familiarity with the basics of ethical hacking/penetration testing or computer security in general so that we can focus on more advanced questions rather than explaining the prerequisites that the students of the Ethical Hacking course (BI-EHA) already know.
