What we're about

# What is SecTalks Brisbane?

SecTalks Brisbane is a non-profit session for technical security talks, and hands-on challenges. A forum to discuss technical (in)security stuff and share our thoughts. SecTalks Brisbane is held every month.

# What happens at a SecTalks Brisbane?

We have a monthly catch-up where someone presents on something interesting (sometimes VERY interesting!). We also have a monthly challenge that everyone gets their hands on. SecTalks Brisbane is community focused, open to beginners and experts alike, and vendor-pitch free. Those that are interested in learning infosec, hacking, computer security, and Capture the Flag challenges (and similar) are encouraged to attend.

# How SecTalks is organised?

It is 100% organic voluntary effort. Something that we feel we need to have. People in SecTalks are quite passionate and open for new ideas and discussion. We have people with different backgrounds.

# This is super cool, I wanna join SecTalks!

Sure! We always like to get more awesome people in.

# But I am new to security and want to learn, can I still join?

SecTalks is always open to anyone who is keen to learn infosec. Those that are interested in learning infosec, hacking, computer security, and Capture the Flag challenges (and similar) are encouraged to attend. We have a few places in each session for newcomers and we will team you up with others with more experience, so you can learn.

BNE0x26 (39th Session)

Telstra Offices

Tim Kent will be presenting on JSON Web Token usage from a security perspective and will also be doing a live walkthrough of his three JWT challenges from the September CTF. There should be a CTF of some sort - details will be released once confirmed. There will be a group walkthrough session for anyone that wants to participate in the CTF (anyone want to volunteer to lead the group walkthrough?). If you don't want to participate in the CTF you can just come to socialise and hang out. Here are some thing to take note of: 1) Bring your laptop if you intend to do the CTF. B) Free wireless internet might be available, but is not guaranteed. You may want to bring your own wifi dongles or tether to your iPwns. five) This is a learning exercise for everyone. The idea is to think about problems, make friends and have fun. Don't treat it like a competition (too much). If you are a beginner and no clue where to start, ask around, most people are friendly and will help out, or let you shoulder surf. z) Have fun. Learn. Mentor if you are able to. Participate, or just socialise. This is supposed to be a fun, learning event for the security and hacker community. As usual there will be beer, soft drinks and pizza courtesy of our AWESOME sponsors, Alcorn Group and PwC. If you can't find us/get into the venue, please call (03)[masked] or shoot us a message on Meetup and we can help out.
