About conference

ZeroNights is an international conference dedicated to the practical side of information security.

ZeroNights shows new attack methods and threats, discovers new possibilities of attack and defense, and suggests out-of-the-box security solutions.

ZeroNights gathers experts, infosecurity practitioners, analysts, and hackers from all over the world.

Date: 13-14 November 2014.


Audience: technical specialists, administrators, ISOs and CISOs, pen-testers, programmers, and everyone who is interested in the practical aspects of the field.




Best papers delivered by the experts from around the globe

There are no invulnerable systems. There are only well-defended ones. And there should be no place for illusions in the quest for a well-defended system. Star speakers from various countries will help you disavow myths, dispel delusions, and assess the actual security level of one system or another. You will know how hackers plan their actions, how malware and exploits work. The experts will show their current research, analyze the most important problems of the field, and demonstrate actual attacks.


Workshops by the world-class professionals

The gurus of infosec are ready to share unique knowledge and skills. At their workshops, you will learn how to write exploits, how to bypass the defense of OS and browsers, how to find vulnerabilities in web projects. Practical knowledge fortified by theory is priceless.

Best place for friendly and professional communication

ZeroNights gathers professionals from Russia and other countries. Here is the informal venue to get the answers to the hottest questions, to meet the best infosec practitioners, and to acquire unique knowledge.


Contests for the gifted

Age, sex, occupation, personal achievements mean nothing in our contests. The main thing is talent, daring, speed and unique skills. Just act and win.
