General description

We live in a digital world, but as the real one, it has its dangers. Have you ever wondered how safe your digital memories are or how easy it is to break an app if it is not well secured?

During this course you will get an overview of what computer security and malware are, you will learn how to protect your computer from syn flooding attacks, Cross site request forgery and site scripting, from DNS attacks, wireless attacks and SQL Injection. Other topics included in the course are the functioning of cryptographic systems and their usage in order to protect your applications. So hack IT, test IT, try to break IT!

The courses will be held at Politehnica University of Timisoara. This summer we will learn how the attackers do their job and how to protect ourselves against them.

Timisoara is known as the Little Wien and it is very environmentally friendly. You can visit the first beer factory in Romania and the Recas Winery. Our traditional food is very delicious and you’ll fall in love with it! Its rich cultural diversity will make your experience very special. [There are endless possibilities of having fun for all types of people.

If you’ve ever wondered how Romanians hack NASA and the Pentagon, decrypt your way to Timisoara!
