null The Open Security Community in India
null - The open security community is a registered non-profit society and by far the
largest security community in India with more than 2000 members comprising of
information security professionals, ethical hackers and law enforcement professionals
that focuses on infosec research and assisting Govt. and private organizations with cyber
security issues. null has 7 chapters through out India - Pune, Bangalore, Mumbai,
Hyderabad, Delhi, Chennai and Bhopal, interacting with around 5000-6000 people by
various activities like monthly meets, security camps, workshops, talks at various events
& organizations and executing security projects.
Our portal null – The open security community n|u*|* provides free information on security research, responsible
vulnerability disclosure, open source security software project, white papers,
presentations, monthly chapter meets.
We see that currently there is a disconnect between the Govt. agencies and private
organizations when it comes to cyber security and aim to fill the gap in a vendor neutral
way. We have many projects running that help organizations tighten their security
infrastructure, including Keeda Project and nullcon - International Security Conference
Keeda Project is a database of vulnerabilities found in the wild which are reported to us
by the members or anonymous researchers and we take action by immediately contacting
the concerned organization and the respective CERT with information on the
vulnerability and assist them in mitigating the threats.
As a part of null initiatives we organize nullcon - International Security Conference (http:/
/nullcon.net), our annual flag-ship event. It is held in Goa in the month of February. At
nullcon we call upon security experts from around the world to deliver talks and
workshops on the latest technology and techniques in the security and hacking world.
The talks range from web hacking, security & hacking tools, smart phone hacking, cyber
warfare to zero day vulnerabilities.
The year 2012 marks a revolutionary change and unprecedented expansion in the way
nullcon is organized. With the overwhelming support of our esteemed sponsors,
enthusiastic participants and volunteers - null is organizing TWO conferences in 2012 -
nullcon Goa on 15-18th Feb 2012 and nullcon Delhi in Oct 2012
nullcon Goa continues to be a mix of hacking, security and business briefings with
a lot of technical events for all the security geeks.
nullcon Delhi will focus more on the Corporate and the Government sector. It will
include events geared towards business prospects in information security such as the
exquisite Exhibit Space and Demo Zone for cutting-edge technology and products,
business networking events and parties.Hacking Is a Matter of Time Knowledge and Patience
