misc_none 1:00 PM  -  3:00 PM Ethical Hacking, for teens   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Staff   609-799-0462   ddrobnja@mcl.org
    Program Description:

Are you an avid programmer ready to boast your skills to the world? Consider gaining some skills in ethical hacking, the branch of “hacking” concerned with finding holes in programs and websites before the bad guys do. Join this program to get off the ground with your hacking career! We’re not going to be hacking into Google or anything, but we’re certain you’ll have fun getting yourself ankle-deep into this exciting realm of computer science.

NOTE: THIS PROGRAM IS NOT FOR PROGRAMMING BEGINNERS. We strongly recommend that if you wish to join this program, you have had significant experience in at least one object-oriented or procedural programming language (Python, Java, C, etc.) and have a solid overall understanding of the basics of how computers function (e.g. the function of RAM, what a CPU does, etc.). If all these terms sound like Greek to you, it would not be advisable to join this program.

The program will run every Friday for 6 weeks, starting July 17th, for two hours from 1 - 3 PM. Below is a schedule of the program.

Schedule:

Week 1: Introduction to the program--what is ethical hacking? Recommendations for getting good at hacking. Cryptography -- Alphabetical and Binary Ciphers, Hashes, RSA, ECC. Some fun with (virtual) Enigma machines.

Week 2: The Internals of a Computer: How x86 Assembly Makes the Modern Computer Work. Linux tutorial and an introduction to reverse engineering.

Week 3: An intro to C and the stack and heap; basic binary exploitation techniques (buffer overflows, ROP, format string attacks)

Week 4: An introduction to the structure of network communications and how the Internet works. Web hacking: SQL injection techniques, cookie stealing, PHP vulnerabilities

Week 5: Explorations in Cyber Forensics: using hex editors, analyzing packet captures and memory dumps, steganography

Week 6: Mock Capture the Flag (CTF) Competition! (No, this isn’t the game involving running played in gym class.) Program members will group in pairs and compete in a small competition designed to test the limits of their hacking skills. May the best hackers win!

Be sure to bring a laptop! We’d also recommend installing the software from the following URL (all of it is free and mostly open-source):

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ySjP7xuoGr_xVCVK6NCIuIfg3bzFkqDjWIboPilW9Nw/edit?usp=sharing

We recommend attending every class, though the classes aren’t exactly sequential so its okay to miss one or two. Please contact us if you know in advance that you might miss a session, and only register if you think you’ll be available for most of the sessions. Open to ages 12 - 20!

We recommend that you install the following software on your computer:

-Wireshark

Mac users may have trouble installing this due to compatibility issues, we will help you out in the first session

-A Hex Editor (we recommend HxD for Windows or iHex for Mac)

-A Disassembler of your Choice

Hopper works well for Mac, IDA Disassembler is the industry standard (if you have a Mac, we recommend both)

-Advanced REST client (available from Chrome App Store). This isn’t strictly necessary, we can also use online REST services.

-Code Editor (I recommend Sublime Text)

-Python 2.7 or 3.3 (or preferably both)

pip package manager or easy_install package manager

-C Compiler, e.g. gcc (preinstalled on Mac and Linux, available through Visual Studio or Cygwin on Windows)

We also recommend:

Registering for:

-A Cloud9 Account (https://c9.io): useful for Linux terminals

-A Github Account (https://github.com)

-A PicoCTF Account (https://picoctf.com)

-An HSCTF Account (https://hsctf.com)

-Accounts for other CTFs!

Do you have the acting bug?! Enjoy picturing what the characters sound like in your head while you’re immersed in reading a great book?!

Well here’s your chance! We’ll provide the script…you provide the voices as we ‘perform’ our own Reader’s Theater play. Reader’s Theater involves each person reading aloud their part, without costumes or props, similar to the way famous actors dub the voices of their characters in animated movies.

Come help bring our characters to life and enjoy refreshments at our very own ‘wrap party’.

Online registration is required. Registration opens the day of the program at 7:00am. Please register each child separately. Register and attend only one Reader’s Theater program. Space is limited; please be on time. Your spot may be given to another if you are late. Call the Youth Desk at 609-989-6921 to cancel. Younger/older siblings will not be permitted except as observers with parent supervision.

misc_none 1:00 PM  -  3:00 PM Ethical Hacking, for teens   Download Event Info Tell a Friend
    Contact: Staff   609-799-0462   ddrobnja@mcl.org
    Program Description:

Are you an avid programmer ready to boast your skills to the world? Consider gaining some skills in ethical hacking, the branch of “hacking” concerned with finding holes in programs and websites before the bad guys do. Join this program to get off the ground with your hacking career! We’re not going to be hacking into Google or anything, but we’re certain you’ll have fun getting yourself ankle-deep into this exciting realm of computer science.

NOTE: THIS PROGRAM IS NOT FOR PROGRAMMING BEGINNERS. We strongly recommend that if you wish to join this program, you have had significant experience in at least one object-oriented or procedural programming language (Python, Java, C, etc.) and have a solid overall understanding of the basics of how computers function (e.g. the function of RAM, what a CPU does, etc.). If all these terms sound like Greek to you, it would not be advisable to join this program.

The program will run every Friday for 6 weeks, starting July 17th, for two hours from 1 - 3 PM. Below is a schedule of the program.

Schedule:

Week 1: Introduction to the program--what is ethical hacking? Recommendations for getting good at hacking. Cryptography -- Alphabetical and Binary Ciphers, Hashes, RSA, ECC. Some fun with (virtual) Enigma machines.

Week 2: The Internals of a Computer: How x86 Assembly Makes the Modern Computer Work. Linux tutorial and an introduction to reverse engineering.

Week 3: An intro to C and the stack and heap; basic binary exploitation techniques (buffer overflows, ROP, format string attacks)

Week 4: An introduction to the structure of network communications and how the Internet works. Web hacking: SQL injection techniques, cookie stealing, PHP vulnerabilities

Week 5: Explorations in Cyber Forensics: using hex editors, analyzing packet captures and memory dumps, steganography

Week 6: Mock Capture the Flag (CTF) Competition! (No, this isn’t the game involving running played in gym class.) Program members will group in pairs and compete in a small competition designed to test the limits of their hacking skills. May the best hackers win!

Be sure to bring a laptop! We’d also recommend installing the software from the following URL (all of it is free and mostly open-source):

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ySjP7xuoGr_xVCVK6NCIuIfg3bzFkqDjWIboPilW9Nw/edit?usp=sharing

We recommend attending every class, though the classes aren’t exactly sequential so its okay to miss one or two. Please contact us if you know in advance that you might miss a session, and only register if you think you’ll be available for most of the sessions. Open to ages 12 - 20!

We recommend that you install the following software on your computer:

-Wireshark

Mac users may have trouble installing this due to compatibility issues, we will help you out in the first session

-A Hex Editor (we recommend HxD for Windows or iHex for Mac)

-A Disassembler of your Choice

Hopper works well for Mac, IDA Disassembler is the industry standard (if you have a Mac, we recommend both)

-Advanced REST client (available from Chrome App Store). This isn’t strictly necessary, we can also use online REST services.

-Code Editor (I recommend Sublime Text)

-Python 2.7 or 3.3 (or preferably both)

pip package manager or easy_install package manager

-C Compiler, e.g. gcc (preinstalled on Mac and Linux, available through Visual Studio or Cygwin on Windows)

We also recommend:

Registering for:

-A Cloud9 Account (https://c9.io): useful for Linux terminals

-A Github Account (https://github.com)

-A PicoCTF Account (https://picoctf.com)

-An HSCTF Account (https://hsctf.com)

-Accounts for other CTFs!
