Stormshield presents the HAKA project at DEF CON 2015

Every year, the best of Hackers’ world finds shelter at the famous hacking convention DEF CON at Paris/Bally’s in Las Vegas (USA).

During the 23rd edition, visitors will as always enjoy a multitude of fun activities such as games, contests, workshops and many more.

However, this year will be a little bit more special for you and for us as this will be your chance to hear about the Haka security project by Stormshield.

On Saturday, August 8th come and meet us for a 2-hour Demo Lab session in which you will learn all about Haka security.

So what is HAKA?

Haka is an open source security oriented language which allows to describe protocols and apply security policies on (live) captured traffic. The overall goal of Haka is to abstract low-level and complex tasks like memory management and packet reassembly to non-developer experts and to provide an easy way to analyze quickly new network protocols.

Top 6 features of Haka security include:

  1. Packet filtering policy
  2. Packet capture
  3. Protocol grammar
  4. Protocol state machine
  5. Modular and extensible design
  6. Integrated debugger

…Plus the new release of Haka’s new network traffic visualization tool: Hakabana.

Where to find us

Two members of the Haka team Medhi Talbi, PHD security researcher and Paul Fariello a software engineer and security enthusiast will be welcoming you at the table 1 of the Demo Labs section of the DEFCON 2015 convention on Saturday, August  8th from 16:00 to 18:00.

From Europe to Africa: put your security skills to the test with the Hacknowledge Contest

Join 1,000+ security talents for a unique intercontinental contest of hacking and job-related sessions in Lille on the 27th and 28th of June.

The event’s 6th edition is an exciting opportunity for all French security aficionados to demonstrate the “national savviness” through an entire night battle of ethical hacking games.

Participants will take up on over 70 challenges ranging from forensics to hardware, industrial systems, wired network and more. The most agile contestants will qualify for the Grand Final, where a trip to Las Vegas to attend the well-known DEFCON hacking conference is the ultimate winning prize.

Alongside the contest, all security talents will benefit from both job-related conferences and job dating sessions.

Thanks to its exponential growth, Stormshield, also sponsor of the event, will be actively taking part in the job-related event sessions with the aim of recruiting the brightest candidates.

Now prepare yourself to excel as it won’t be a “hack” of time before you meet with us.
