WHY HACK ON HACKWEEKDAY?
- To promote and improve information security applications on the current available browsers
- Spark interest in security application development throughout the developer community.
(developing web apps and developing security apps isn’t all that that different)
- Revive abandoned security projects and contribute back to the security community.
- Knowledge sharing directly from authoritative figures in the security community (HITB speakers and project owners)
- To seek & foster knowledge sharing amongst local hardware developers and their security applications for general
use with the information security industry.
This event will be divided into two categories (10 slots each):-
- STUDENTS – Students from local Higher Education institutions. Entries can be on individual basis or in a group of 4 ( 3 students + 1 lecturer/mentor from their institution)
- PROFESSIONALS – Developers, enthusiasts and hackers from the industry. Entries can be on individual basis or in a group of 4.
Project Ideas (but not limited to):-
Propose / Develop / Build / Improve / Update:
- HTML5-based Web Applications
- Web Browsers – The functionality of a web browser (Firefox, Fennec, Chrome/Chromium, etc) by the means of either add-ons, plugins and/or custom build. This year’s theme for this category is ‘Social Media Security’.
- Electronic and/or mechanical hardware-based projects using (but not limited to) arduino, RaspberryPi, Lego Mindstorm, etc.
- Standalone and/or mobile (Android/IOS/J2ME/Symbian/etc) applications based on the decided theme that would benefit end-users in terms of security.
- … and any other interesting projects that you can think off. Propose to us — If it’s cool, it’s in!
