May Talk: "Capture the Flag - Learning Security by Example" by Mal

Hello Everybody,

In May we have to leave our regular schedule and return to the SLUB once more.
Mal has agreed to give us some insights into security hacking.

Capture the Flag (CTF) is a kind of IT security competition and it offers an accessible practical
introduction to this field. The goal of such a competition is to gather points by solving tasks
and obtaining a flag as a proof. Tasks typically belong to a certain category such as Binary
Exploitation, Reverse Engineering, Web or Cryptography. The harder the task is, the more points it
is worth.
This talk starts by providing a short overview of CTF.
After that, a typical Binary Exploitation task gets analyzed and solved.
Finally, an exploit will be developed for a recent real world bug.

Date: Wednesday, 23. May 2018
Start: 19:30
End: 21:30
Place: SLUB Dresden, Zellescher Weg 18, 01069 Dresden

Please invite all the C++ peers around you!

Cheers!
Andreas

April Vortrag: Jessica Parth „Performante Datenverarbeitung von OTDS“

Hello C++ Developers,

CHECK24 wird unser April Meetup hosten. Jessica Parth hält einen Vortrag mit folgendem Inhalt.

CHECK24 stellt sich und ihr Dresdner Projekt vor. Es gibt eine kurze Einführung in den Reisemarkt und dann schauen wir uns die Technik dahinter an. Der offene touristische Datenstandard (OTDS) basiert auf XML und bildet die Daten-Grundlage. Pro Anbieter müssen täglich 100+ GB Daten verarbeitet werden. In ein paar hundert Millisekunden müssen aus 10+ Millionen Flügen und 10+ Tausend Zimmern die richtigen Paare gefunden werden, dazu bestimmen bis zu 25.000 Regeln pro Flug und Zimmer den Preis. Welche weiteren Herausforderungen ergeben sich noch? Wir stellen unsere Lösung und Systemlandschaft dafür vor.
Der Vortrag wird in deutsch gehalten. Für Essen und Getränke wird gesorgt.

Die Eckdaten:

Termin: Donnerstag, 12. April 2018
Beginn: 19:00 Uhr
Ende: Offen
Ort: Check24 Dresden, Prager Str. 3, 01069 Dresden (5. Etage, Schildern folgen)
