[Full-disclosure] AIRRAID2 Wireless Hacking Tournament - Dec 2007, Bangkok Thailand

securityhammerjammer.net
Date: Fri Sep 21 2007 - 04:56:58 CDT


ThinkSECURE (securitystartshere.org) will be running AIRRAID2 in
Bangkok Thailand at the CentralWorld Shopping Complex (the ex-World
Trade Center) on 21 December 2007.

If you would like to register and participate in the event, read on:

=== What is AIRRAID2? ===

AIRRAID2 (http://airraid2.securitystartshere.org) is a cutting-edge
wireless and wired hacking tournament. It challenges participants
with WiFi and Bluetooth wireless hacking against an enterprise
infrastructure which is specially designed to mirror a typical
corporate wireless and wired network deployment.

AIRRAID2 is the successor to the original AIRRAID tournament, Asia's
first-ever true (i.e. not mere wardriving!) wireless hacking
tournament, which was held in Singapore's Suntec Convention Center in
August 2005. Photo archives of the original AIRRAID are available at
http://airraid.securitystartshere.org.
ThinkSECURE now brings this unique brand of wireless hacking
excitement and flavor to the Land of a Thousand Smiles!

=== Who is it intended for? ===

"AIRRAID2 continues our tradition of giving back to the Asian IT-
security community by providing them an entertaining and fun way of
testing their skills against each other and against a realistic
enterprise-class wireless-and-wired infrastructure setup. As many
security professionals rarely get a chance to do some real, full-
bore, hands-on hacking, our purpose-built tournament infrastructure
mirrors an extensive corporate wireless/wired network which allows
them to fully and legitimately employ all their skills to meet the in-
game challenges we've put in place," said Mr. Julian Ho,
ThinkSECURE's co-founder.

=== Why is there a need for it? ===

Many reports cover wireless security incidents and issues after-the-
fact or re-hash old generic warnings and stories. AIRRAID2 cuts
through this fluff by:

- showing in real life the capabilities that modern hackers and
security professionals possess;

- revealing "as-it-happens" how they utilize those abilities to
compromise a representative and realistic enterprise-class
environment;

- showcasing the abilities of today's hackers and their security
professional counterparts in a real world setting;

- highlighting the importance of applying security to wireless
networks in a holistic manner and not relying on vendors' technology
alone;

- illustrating the benefits to IT professionals of attending
practical technical certifications such as the Organizational Systems
Wireless Auditor and Organizational Systems Security Analyst to
develop and upgrade their wireless and enterprise security skills;

- making organizations realize that partners' and vendor
support/maintenance networks can also be a weak link in the security
posture of an organization.

=== When and Where will the event be held? ===

AIRRAID2 will be held at the following venue, date and time:

Venue:
CentralWorld Shopping Complex
(former World Trade Center)
Level 1, Eden Zone
4 Rajdamri Road, Patumwan
