SecDim September 2023 Preview

Hello everyone,

This month we’ve got some exciting things planned.

Live AppSec CTF Competition with Absolute AppSec - September 14th

We will be collaborating with the popular US based Absolute AppSec Podcast for a live AppSec Capture The Flag (CTF) competition.

“The podcast for kids who can’t appsec good and want to learn how to do other stuff good, too.” - Absolute AppSec

We will be joined by industry veterans Seth Law and Ken Johnson, the Absolute AppSec podcast is known for its informal discussions on application security. It offers rich insights, biases, and recommendations from a rotating cast of experts in the field.

The event will be livestreamed and you can join live. You will get the chance to challenge yourself and take your AppSec skills to the next level against your peers.

Cloud Sandbox Environment

Got problems setting up your own IDE? Our new Cloud Sandbox Environment aims to alleviate the often cumbersome process of environment setup.

Similar to a code spaces, this Cloud IDE automatically sets up your workspace so you can skip the wait and get straight to hacking and coding.

Vulnerability Sandbox

Security is an ever evolving field of continual learning, and our Vulnerability Sandbox is built with this philosophy in mind.

We reproduce the vulnerability in our Sandbox with an application that you can experiment on. A practical tool for you to deepen your understanding of vulnerabilities and experiment with exploiting and patching it.

We are currently working on this one, so check back with us soon for more updates!
