NULL [0x00] is a Network Security community for ethical hackers, security professionals and security enthusiasts, born out of the need for a centralized knowledge base in security and the fact that security is treated as an add-o and ignored many a times. It is a step to move towards immunity from security.
We had the first workshop at I2IT Pune and it was a great success.
The major attractions of the workshop were the Wireless Security and the TCP/IP and NMAP workshops where in the audience not only learned the theoretical things but also saw in real-time that how insecure is a WEP secured wireless network and how one can steal Gmail password which is considered to be very secure by means of ARP poisoning and fake certificates.
The support and hospitality at I2IT by the volunteers and staff was excellent. We never had expected such great response from them and we appreciate the effort.
