Event Details

Ever since Ruxcon departed for Melbourne, the Sydney infosec community has been sorely missing a conference-style event to bring the community together for a few days of sharing ideas, showcasing our projects and horrendous alcoholism.

In the spirit of what brought this community together, we’re aiming to build a super hands-on event: that is, instead of a series of talks while you plan on missing to catch up with your friends at the cafe down the road, we’re putting together a full day of hands-on workshops where you can get your hands dirty and we can all help each other learn something new. 

Bring your laptop (or phone or tablet or whatever) to get the most out of this event: infact, bring something you can SSH on or don't come at all.

Our content includes:

  • Antennae for every Occassion
  • Attacking Firmware Binaries
  • Badge Soldering Workshop
  • Bug Bounties
  • CTFs 102
  • Ding dong. Who's there? EVERYONE
  • Drone Hacking
  • Fuzzing with Rabbits for Fun and Profit
  • Hacking all the Windows Domain
  • Managing to find browser bugs
  • Red Star OS - Breaking out of the Gulag (Sandbox)
  • Talking ASCII over the Airwaves
  • Totally Enterprise Ready "hands on" 802.11 wireless security assessment

Game of Flags

  • A twist on the traditional capture the flag wargames
  • Capture flags for platypuscoins, spend them to upgrade your box or attack others
  • Keep your eyes peeled, flags are everywhere
  • Hosted by muld0r
  • Prizes include platypus plushies, because fuck yes [tm]

The Art of Breaking (into stuff. buildings, lockers, whatever)

  • Ever wanted to experiment with picking locks?
  • Pick locks, push pins, pop handcuffs, also don't get in trouble
  • Hosted by topy and klepas

Fireball Talks

  • Open mic 5 min lightning rants
  • Shots required for every additional minute required

Think of it like nerd fight club: it doesn't matter if you're new to this infosec thing, or you've been at it for ages: everyone's expected to participate, and you won't find it fun if you're expecting to just come and sit and listen to other people's work.

This first year is by us, for us: if you're a platypus and there's no more tickets (or if you're broke as shit, spent your last $4.50 on ramen but want to come anyway), ping lin_s / snail and we'll sort you out :)

Note: this is an 18+ event. If you're still super keen to come, enquire within and we'll work something out

platypus initiative

We are a Sydney-based, community-driven initiative that takes a hands-on approach in doing cool security stuff: we’re less about debating the merits of the latest iteration of the PCI-PTS or whether a particular vulnerability should have a CVSS score of 6.75 or 6.77, and more about bringing together like-minded people to share ideas, work on cool information security projects and participate in community events together. Think of it as a casual infosec fight club of sorts: the only real rule is that you have to play.
