This is the 5th Edition of the Security Summer School.
The 5th edition of Security Summer School focused on Practical Software Exploitation takes place between June 18th and July 22nd, 2018, at the Faculty of Automatic Control and Computers, University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest. With great support from Ixia (Keysight). Students will go through an in-depth tour of what it means to discover, successfully exploit and patch a software vulnerability and develop the necessary skills and insights needed to embark on such an endeavor.
Activities take place during three intensive training sessions per week as well as two Capture the Flag (CTF) contests that are held mid-term and at the end of the summer school. The final CTF contest will be the highlight of the summer school and students will be able to showcase the skills they have learned and be awarded prizes offered by Ixia.
Many thanks to Ixia (Keysight) for their continued support and engagement.
