About event

BSides Odessa will be held on August 27 in Terminal 42, registration is open from 9am to 10am.

BSides Odessa is an information security conference organized by OWASP Odessa and SoftSeq.

BSides Odessa strives to be an informal, community event where attendees can not only exchange and broaden their knowledge, but also establish new personal connections based on common interest - computer security.

An after-party will be held following the event to help you do just that while having a great time in the company of conference participants, speakers and organizers!


Total entrance price is 1000uah, paid in cash at the door. BUT...

If you solve our (really easy) admission CTF, BSides Odessa is completely FREE to attend! 4 tasks, each gives a 25% discount off the entrance price, down to 0uah - the more you solve, the less you pay! Try it!

Entrance is also free for all the interested girls to encourage attendance among women - let's try and shift the negative gender balance in the field ;)


Capture The Flag in each of the tasks:

1) Who doesn't love XML?

2) Working with data is a tricky business

3) A seeded Java's random number generator first outputs 0x1f61a96b, then 0xb5735125, then... it stops - JVM broke down, as usual! The next number would've been your flag, damnit! But all isn't lost for those who can predict the future...

4) Peek into what your machine does under the hood and learn its secrets! Tip: the program accepts a serial code as command line parameter and, for a correct one, outputs the flag.


Submit your discovered flags here to obtain a discounting entrance token! Order of flags does not matter.
