THE LEET HACKING CONFERENCE
VENUE - Will be announced | 2017
This security-cum-hack conference attempts to reveal the latest and relatively arcane ways of attack and defence in new media entities i.e. computers, internet, mobile and electronic systems with focus of Cryptography and Mobile systems. While cryptography governs the 101 of security of data at rest or in motion ; Mobile Security has apparently become very significant in quotidian lives of everyone in recent decades- because our banking data, our social networks or our personal lives - all of it exists on our mobiles now a days. As we make a transition from conventional to electronic media where every iota of significant data is available online and where wars are fought on cyberspace and where information can be and is widely used as a weapon against us, the security of cyberSpace and related mobile gadgets is of pivotal importance - this is precisely the focal point of this 1337con.
Through this conference, We are also attempting to revitalize a Phoenix - a Phoenix which stands as a witness of the administration of Mauryas and the valor of Ashoka; that stands as a witness of immense intellect that flew through Nalanda to the world and the witness of the Golden Age of Gupta that innovated the arts, science, mathematics and architecture of the world. We are trying to revitalize the spirit of ancient Patliputra... by attempting to foster the quest of knowledge through our International Conference on Ethical hacking

1. The Brain-Game : It would be an “onsite” war of empires in Cyberworld where each participating team would create a their army (Bots) which will play against each other in the battlefield (the Game server).The surviving champion takes the glory and the prize. Like mentioned earlier this would be an “onsite” competition and not “online” competition.
2. Hack a Planet : In another challenge through a labyrinth of hacks on a web distributed servers, the hacker would have to find his way to a mobile botnet and take complete control of it. Like the previous challenge this competition would be “onsite” as well and the people would have to bring in their system to connect to the server.
