The Tale of Two Benches by: Peisi, Alina, and Edmund

When a car is as expensive as a house (in Singapore), no one in the right mind would inject malcode into his/her vehicle. The only sane way is to learn through a test bench. This talk will feature two benches built by the Car Security Quarter (CSQ), our journey and lessons learned. We will also describe the challenges faced when building a vehicle IVI system and how we overcome it.

Red Team Village

Schedule: Date to be Announced

Red Team Village ( is a community driven combat readiness platform for Adversarial attack simulation, Red teaming tactics and Offensive security operations. This community is managed by a group of cyber security and red team tactics enthusiasts. A red teamer needs to be skilled in every aspect of Adversarial Simulation and offensive security operations. We can consider this as a platform to share tactics, techniques, and tools related to various domains of adversarial attack simulation. We have been organizing workshops, talks, demonstrations, open discussions, Capture the flag challenges (CTF) and other exercises at Cyber Security conferences for the past 4 years. We do design real life corporate CTF scenarios with the same network architecture and defensive mechanisms used by the organizations. The CTF players needs to do the red teaming against this infrastructure which protected and monitored by Blue teams. This village welcomes Red teams, Blue teams and Purple teams. Blue teams get to know the attack tactics used by the adversaries, and Red teams get to learn the security monitoring/detection techniques used by the SoC teams. A collaborative purple teaming culture can be cultivated.
