Game of Hacks - Play, Hack, and Track - Igor Matlin Converge 2016 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Game of Hacks - Play, Hack, and Track
Igor Matlin
@exlegalalien

We created “Game of Hacks” a viral web app marketed as a tool to train developers on secure coding with the intention of building a honeypot. Game of Hacks, built using the node.js framework, displays a range of vulnerable code snippets challenging the player to locate the vulnerability. A multiplayer option makes the challenge even more attractive and the leaderboard spices up things when players compete for a seat on the iron throne. Within 24 hours we had 35K players test their hacking skills...we weren't surprised when users started breaking the rules. Join us to: • Play GoH against the audience in real time and get your claim to fame. • Understand how vulnerabilities were planted within Game of Hacks. • See real attack techniques (some caught us off guard) and how we handled them. • Learn how to avoid vulnerabilities in your code and how to go about designing a secure application. • Hear what to watch out for on the ultra-popular node.js framework.

Igor has over 19 years of technical experience in high-tech companies as a software engineer and technical lead. Prior to joining Checkmarx as our Senior Solutions Architect, Igor worked as a Technical Manager at Myriad, a leading mobile software company, and as a Software Engineer and Product Manager at Novarra, acquired by Nokia in 2010. Igor is an appreciated speaker at forums such as ISC2 and OWASP. Igor studied at Belarusian State University of Informatics and Radioelectronics and received his B.Sc in Computer Science and Math from Christian Brothers University.
