Formidable American offensive security hackers are meeting in Miami with other top hackers from all over the world, including India, to hone their technical expertise, a report has said.
Infiltrate's annual summit will focuses entirely on the technical aspects of offensive security issues, and will bring together the best and brightest in the hacker community.
According to Fox News, this is the largest gathering of purely offensive information security experts on the planet, with over 200 hackers from as far away as Israel, Sweden and China.
Organized and sponsored by Immunity, an education firm founded by former NSA hacker Dave Aitel, the conference ran April 11 and 12.
Aitel stressed that it was just for offensive work.
According to the report, offensive techniques are used by a wide range of people from governments and banks through to researchers working on protecting critical national infrastructure.
Aitel said that Infiltrate is important because it is the only conference dedicated to offensive information security techniques.
Deep down this is about the attendees, who all share a technical competence in the area, and a burning interest in learning more about it, he added.
