[Insomni'hack 2018] Ph0wn smart devices CTF: Behind the Scenes

Ph0wn is a Capture The Flag ethical hacking contest dedicated to smart devices. Its first edition took place end of November 2017, in Sophia Antipolis (France).

In this talk, we explain what happened "behind the scenes", i.e the making of such an event.

You learn:

  • How long it actually takes to prepare challenges
  • The issues we encountered
  • What attacks, hacking techniques we registered during the CTF
  • What's different about a **smart devices CTF** and how we coped with that (or not )
