Manchester Grey Hats

Wednesday 26th July, 7:00pm

Manchester Grey Hats is a place for all those interested in hacking and cyber security to learn and share. We’ll be running capture the flags, workshops and presenting security research. We encourage all skill levels and those from all backgrounds. Are you an aspiring hacker or a developer thinking about security? Come along and learn. Presenting is open to all members, so if you have something you’d like to present but aren’t ready for the big conferences, get in contact.

Said best by The Mentor – “This is our world now… the world of the electron and the switch, the beauty of the baud”

This Month:

This month we’ll have a guest talk from Tim – an introductory look at the the various tools and techniques for performing man in the middle attacks, as well as the techniques and tips to defend against them.

The presentation will include a few demos of the tools and a show and tell of devices which can be used to make the attacks easier.

For those new to MitM attacks, this is a very powerful technique used to intercept and modify network traffic (which is why encryption is so important!). As this is a presentation, no laptop will be required to take part.
