Welcome in our community to Read The Fancy Manual

SigSegV1 occured last december and it all went perfectly ! We are already working on SigSegV2 so it will be better than the first edition !


The project

Our association's goal is to create a yearly french event about computer seucrity. The next one will be in the end of 2019. More information soon. Named "SigSegV2", it will be based on three themes: - Advanced technical skill. - Geographical accessibility. - Human sized event. We want to focus on many subjects, as Reverse Engineering, Physical attack demos, Hardware hacking and low level explanation. In order to do so, we will do: - Talks explaining attack and defense techniques. - hacking challenges, in order to mix theory and practice.

The benefits

Creating SigSegV2 event will have benefits for everyone: - Knowledge sharing, one of the main values for hackers. - Show the skill of France in the security field. - Communication, in order to show support for innovative projects. - Show the importance of security as a need. Moreover, a job offers and resume sharing exchange platform can be setup, for everyone who is interested. In this way, partners will be able to discuss in a professional way with customers, in order to share jobs offers, traineeship or even partnerships.
